Dampare is right, but he should not be addressing diplomats – KKD

Kwesi Kyei Darkwa, alias KKD has commented on the Inspector-General of Police’s May 20th letter addressed to the British High Commissioner, Harriet Thompson.

Whiles he holds that IGP George Akuffo Dampare was right to respond to the issue the ambassador commented on, he quizzed whether it was the place of the Police chief to respond to ambassadors.

“Whatever the IGP said was true but should the IGP be addressing the emissary of the head of another country?

“I think the answer is no. I think that should be coming either from our presidency or better still the appointee of our president to deal with emissaries of other countries, that is the Minister of Foreign Affairs,” he submitted on the June 1 edition of the GTV Breakfast show.

He stressed that while the tweet by the ambassador could be classified innocuous, “it was also irksome” and provocative forcing the IGP to defend his office and the country.

“Everything he has written in that letter legally, commonsensically and diplomatically is true,” KKD added.

Dampare dominates news with letter to UK envoy

Inspector-General of Police George Akuffo Dampare has been in the news for the better part of Tuesday, May 31, 2022, after a four-page letter signed by him was published by the Ghana Police Service.

A four-page letter from the Inspector General of Police, COP Dr. George Akuffo-Addo Dampare to the British High Commissioner has sparked conversation on various platforms since its release.

The letter dated 20th May, 2022 addressed issues raised in a tweet by Harriet Thompson, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, regarding the arrest of #FixTheCountry Movement Convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor.

Her tweet of May 17, 2022, read, “Oliver Barker Vormawor, convener of #FixTheCountry movement arrested again, I understand for a motoring offence on his way to court. I’ll be interested to see where this goes.”

But the IGP in his response described the content of the tweet as unnecessary and biased. He further urged that the diplomat keeps within the limits of what concerns her.

“For the moment, we would recommend a Ghanaian saying that might guide you in your diplomatic engagements. The saying goes: ‘di wo fie asem’ – it means learn to keep within the limits of what concerns you,” the concluding parts of the statement signed by the IGP said.
