Parliament has passed the Vigilantism and Related Offenses Bill 2019 after a third reading.

The Bill was laid amidst disagreement from the NDC and its minority in parliament who argued that a bi-partisan engagement initiated before the bill was introduced was the way to go, but this notwithstanding the Bill has been passed.

The object of the Bill is to disband political party vigilante groups and proscribe acts of vigilantism in the country.

The phenomenon of politically-related violence is frustrating Ghana’s fledgling democracy and the rule of law.
