Nii Tetteh Kpobi Kootse, Kpobiman Mantse in Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region, has condemned the xenophobic attack in South Africa.
According to him, the attacks on fellow Africans undermines the Africa Unity (AU) objective which to foster unity and trade collaboration.
Nii Kootse made the comments during the celebration of Homowo, an annual Ga Mantshie festival in Accra last Saturday.
While condemning the brutality meted out on fellow Africans by the South Africans, Nii Kootse called for stringent measures to end the unfortunate incident on the continent.
He used the occasion to also call on Ghanaians and the government to ensure violence-free election in 2020 general elections.
He said it was his hope the incident that characterised the Ayawaso West Woguon by-election does not repeat itself in 2020 as it has the tendency of disrupting the country peace and political stability.
Nii Kootse urged Ghanaians to reject political parties that actions and in-actions would effect peace of the country in the next year general elections.
The Kpobiman Mantse also called on the Electoral Commission (EC) Boss Jean Mensah to conduct free and fair elections to avoid pre-election and post-election violence in the country.
He entreated the youth to desist from antisocial activities that retard the growth and development of the country.
He said as future leaders, they must prepare and learn to sacrifice for their future devoid of violence and drug abuse that could derail their chance of becoming good and responsible citizens.
He appealed to stakeholders in the community to join hands to help fight against drug abuse among the youth so as to reduce crime.
