The #FixTheCountry Movement has received a donation of $50,000 from the Open Society Foundation.

Revealing this in a Facebook post, a convener of the Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor said more details will be communicated in a press briefing soon.

He noted that the donation was a delightful one, considering that he was behind bars again.

The Open Society Foundations, founded by George Soros, are the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights.

It provides thousands of grants every year through a network of national and regional foundations and offices, funding a vast array of projects—many of them now shaped by the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Earlier today, news broke that Mr Barker-Vormawor had been arrested.

Other conveners of the Movement told JoyNews that he was picked up on Tuesday morning by Police officers while on his way to the court.

Confirming this, Mr Barker-Vormawor said he is being held in cells at the Madina Court.

“I have been charged with “careless and inconsiderate driving,” he noted.

The activist complained about the harassment he has had to contend with since he took on the mantle as a convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement.

“In just one year of #FixTheCountry activism, I have already been arrested three times. I have also already been sued three times, twice by the Ghana Police Service, and by the Electoral Commissioner.

“Anyway, it must all be a coincidence. I’m sure. No one is above the law, except the President,” he stated.

Considering the turmoil the convener has faced, the cash award of American Billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundation could not have come at an opportune time.

“In any case, I am happy to announce that #fixTheCountry has been awarded 50,000 dollars by the Open Society Foundation,” he noted.
