The Minister-designate also further said that she fired the gun shots because she felt her life was in danger and she thought she needed to save her life.

Hon. Hawa Koomson speaking before the vetting committee of Parliament also said that she doesn’t want to talk much about the incident because the issue is under investigation.

“I also apologize to the people who were scared on that day, it was in defence of my life which I felt was in danger and I thought I needed to save my life, but I want to plead with the committee that the matter is under investigation so I wouldn’t want to say much about it”.


Hon. Hawa Koomson who is the MP for Awuti Senya East confirmed in a radio interview in 2020 that she fired gunshots at a voter’s registration center in Kasoa.

After the incident, some persons and organisations asked President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo to take away the ministerial position from Hon. Hawa Koomson.
