Agotime Ziope DCE attacks NPP’s Dzifa Kaledzi; leaves her with an eye injury

The immediate past Ho Central New Patriotic Party (NPP) Women’s Organizer, Dzifa Kaledzi, is nursing an eye injury following an attack over the weekend. 

The Agotime Ziope District Chief Executive, Emilia Emefa Adziamah, was alleged to have pushed Dzifa Kaledzi to the floor, before hitting her in the left eye with a brochure, without any provocation. 

The victim suffered a cut on the lid of the left eye while her left forearm is swollen.

The incident occurred during the final funeral rites of the late Mrs. Mabel Adom Ahaze, wife of the Ho Central NPP Chairman, Frank Ahaze. 

The funeral which brought together the rank and file of the governing party was almost ruined by the unfortunate incident. 

Learning of the incident, contacted Madam Kaledzi who confirmed the attack.

She narrated that, upon reaching the funeral ground, she identified an empty seat and politely asked the DCE to make way for her to access the seat. 

“When I asked to pass by her, she stretched her feet and blocked the way everybody was using, she then pushed me to the floor and smashed my face with the brochure when some folks were helping me to get on my feet”, she said. 

Madam Kaledzi who is also the Deputy General of NPP Loyal Ladies, said she was surprised Madam Adziamah acted in that manner though she did nothing to provoke her. 

A medical report reads “Left eye – redness, tearing and photophobia abrasive injury at the upper eyelid.  Left forearm – tenderness, mild swelling and abrasive injury, limitation to movement”. 

She has since reported the incident at the Ho Central Police Station. learned some government officials have attempted to intervene to have the matter resolved amicably. 

Madam Kaledzi, who is also a member of the Volta Regional Communication Team, however, insists she would haul the Agotime Ziope DCE before Court and demand damages. 

When contacted Madam Adziamah, she declined to comment on the incident with an explanation that “I am somewhere”, and hence could not speak to the issue.
