Popular fetish priest Nana Kwaku Bonsam, in the wake of recent gas explosions, has come out strongly to call for a demonstration in his own area to prevent a similar disaster.
According to Kwaku Bonsam, a gas filling station in Akomadan Afrancho often leaks and the whole area smells of gas, therefore it should be relocated before it causes people to die.
Speaking on Adom Fm, Kwaku Bonsam revealed his own burns are as a result of a gas explosion and thus he would not sit down for someone else to suffer a similar fate.
Nana Kwaku Bonsam, whose real name is Stephen Osei Mensah said he has been scarred for life due to a gas explosion.
He said his transformation began one night in 1986, when he was 19.
Kwake Bonsam said he was carrying a lantern near his home and accidentally walked into the path of an open gas line. The flame triggered an explosion.
He was released from the hospital with extensive burn scars on his face and torso.
But he was ostracized for his appearance so he had to drop out of school and found work as a mechanic in the Suame Magazine, a bustling industrial district outside Kumasi, the regional capital.
Based on this backdrop, Kwaku Bonsam said he does not want any indigene in his town to go through his ordeal hence the decision to demonstrate.
“I’m a victim of gas explosion and I don’t want anyone at Akomadan Afranchoto go through. I have had several surgeries to fix my face because I have the money how about those who don’t have?” he quizzed.
The popular fetish priest said they have written to the police at Akomadan to give them the green light for the protest.
Kwaku Bonsam also commended government for the bold initiative to halt the incessant gas explosions in the country.
