Chiefs in the Eastern Region are questioning the Gender ministry and the Ghana Girl Guides Association on their total silence on recent spark of spousal murder cases against women in the country.

The chiefs have called on the ministry and it’s stakeholders to put eminent measures in place to curb the menace.

The chiefs of Akuapim in the Eastern Region have described as worrying the threat of spousal murder cases recorded in the country in recent times when the ministry of Gender, children and social protection and a vibrant stakeholder such as the Ghana Girl Guides Association are keeping mute the threatening challenge.

The chiefs stated that within a period of three months, the country has recorded many cases of that incident, saying it was so abhorring and wondered why lovers turned to become enemies who could not settle their issues but ended up killing themselves.

The Mponua-hene of Akuapem Adukrom, Nana Asare Atakorah iii together with other chiefs, Queen Mothers and security agencies expressed the concern when they addressed the media and women in the area on Monday to report any spousal threat to the Traditional leaders and the Police for immediate intervention.

He said couples in the olden days could stay happily in marriage for decades to take proper care of their offspring but the reverse was the case nowadays because partners even forgot that they had ever expressed love for each other but all they could do was to destroy their lives.

Nana Asare Atakorah said the saddest aspect of the situation was where the man killing his partner and for fear of being arrested to face prosecution also commit suicide without thinking about the welfare of the children they were leaving behind.

He therefore appealed to the citizenry in other regions, particularly couples to assist in complementing the efforts of the traditional leaders, the Security agencies and other stakeholders to maintain the prevailing peace in the country to pave way for holistic and accelerated progress.
