A former Member of Parliament for Denkyira, Ben Aryeh, says the reputation being built for his town as a place of barbarians always breaking the law is wrong.
According to the former legislator, Denkyira-Obuasi residents are not killers, but simply peace loving people like the rest of the country.
Aryeh responded to the claims of the town members being violent during an appearance on Asempa Fm’s Ekosii Sen program.
“We are not killers…we are also peace loving people like all Ghanaians,” he said.
“Ghana is not the country with the highest crime rate for Denkyira-Obuasi to be number one in terms of trouble making.
“The problem is that there is no town without trouble makers, there are all shades of people in a town and Denkyira-Obuasi is just like any other town…,” he said.
He added: “Am sure you might have dealt with a people that you did not even know are Denkyiras, we are like all Ghanaians…just that the condemnable issue is what is casting a bad image on us…,”
