Somanya goes gay as NDC marks June 4 Uprising


Somanya the capital town of Yilo-Krobo went gay on Monday as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) staged one of their spectacular fiestas in recent memory.
A large crowd comprising the old and the young gathered at the main Somanya Lorry Park as loudspeakers blared the NDC anthem and various Party songs.
The Park was decorated with June 4th and NDC flags with adherents wearing tee shirts of the various groups within the Party.

On the main street and alleys of Somanya various groups within the Party displayed their colours and danced to the music while the town's folks waited patiently on trees and in storey buildings around Park for the arrival of Former President Jerry John Rawlings and Professor John Evan Atta Mills, NDC Presidential Candidate for Elections 2008.
Former President Rawlings and Prof Mills were escorted by a large crowd from the outskirts of the Township first to the palace of Konor of the Yilo-Krobo Traditional Area and then to the rally grounds.

As they made their way to the Lorry Park the crowd got excited and went into frenzy. The excitement continued throughout the rally, which ended at 1830 hours.

Among one of the unusual faces that surfaced at the rally was General Arnold Quainoo, Former Member of the Provisional National Defence Council. Some retired Amy Officers; Former District Chief Executives in the NDC era and NDC Members of Parliament were also present.
