News about the sudden death of a leader is sure to catch the attention of any blogger or reader. Following the demise of Ghana’s former President John Evans Atta Mills and a former Vice President Aliu Mahama, forecasting the death of political leaders appears to be the latest thing in vogue.
News making round currently, has to do with a purported interview a renowned man of God, Rev. Owusu Bempah, granted the New Independent newspaper concerning the death of President Mahama. The newspaper reported that Rev. Owusu Bempah had informed them that President Mahama has an additional 15years to live; after which he will give up the ghost.
Although Rev Owusu Bempah had once foretold of the likely death of President Mahama, if Ghanaians do not pray fervently to prevent it, he claims the situation is under control. He however vented his anger on the New Independent newspaper for writing a story that smacks of falsehood.
In an interview with Okay FM, Rev. Owusu Bempah stated that he has never said anything concerning the death of President Mahama in recent times.
He disclosed that he has a good rapport with the media but wouldn’t allow people in the industry to run him down with their false publications. He confidently stated that the story is a false one and should be treated as a worthless one.
“I want to put on record that the reporter who broke the story hasn’t had any interview with me. God hasn’t informed me He has added 15years to the life of John Mahama. If that reporter isn’t careful, the wrath of God would descend on him for writing this false news…I haven’t met anybody from the Independent Newspaper to discuss this subject”, he stressed.
