The managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has said some boys attacked his car at Dome, a suburb of Accra, Friday.

According to him, it took the intervention of some 'responsible' people in the crowd who forced those boys to apologise to him.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Radio Gold's Alhaji and Alhaji, Kwesi Pratt condemned threats being issued out to people who spoke against a particular political party; adding "we should build a democracy regardless of one's political affiliation"

Below is what he said:

“…I stayed at work till very late yesterday…I got calls from my friends and they said where are you and I said look I am at work. They said are you alone and I said yes I am alone. Are you driving home alone and I said yes I am driving home alone and they said no, no, no, you shouldn’t do that. It is dangerous; the situation out there is dangerous and I was wondering; how dangerous can this be?

So I left Abelemkpe (a suburb of Accra); around midnight; driving alone to my house. I passed through several NPP jubilant; nothing happened until I got somewhere in Dome and then a couple of boys; maybe not more than 5 started banging on my car; kicking and so on. And I said my goodness what is this so I parked the car and I came out of the car and I said what the hell is going on here? Now do you know what happened? Apparently more responsible persons in the crowd came out and they forced those young men to apologise. I was so very impressed that there were responsible persons in that crowd of jubilant who quickly brought some discipline and compelled these young men to apologise for what they had done and I felt so proud as a Ghanaian…

A friend of mine who is a leading figure in the NDC called me last night and he said to me that he has had three death threats on his phone…it may not be from the NPP but it should never happen that because a party has lost elections any of its members should receive death threats; it should never happen; that’s a blot on our democracy. We should build a democracy where we are free to disagree and campaign against each other…I hope we will get there…"
