Dr. Michael Kpessa Whyte, the second witness at the ongoing electoral petition trial, told the Supreme Court that he had no reason to lie to judges against Jean Mensa, the Chairperson of the 1st Respondent.
This follows on from the fact that Justin Amenuvor, the lawyer of the Electoral Commission (EC), told the Court that the argument by Kpessa-Whyte that Jean Mensa requested the petitioner’s representative to leave, was not the case.
Mr. Amenuvor said that Kpessa-Whyte and his other colleague decided to step out of the strong room rather than at Jean Mensa’s orders.
However, during the cross-examination on Tuesday February 2, Dr Kpessa-Whyte insisted that the EC Chair told them to leave the place.
During proceedings, the EC’s lawyer said “I put it to you that you were not instructed by the Chairperson of the first respondent to leave the room.”
In response, the witness said “My Lords, we were instructed by the first respondent. I have no reason ever to just lie or deceive this honorable court if that was not the case .
“As I have indicated our leaving there was not in secret.”
