Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr could not fathom why a Member of Parliament as well as a ‘leading political figure’ will engage in what he describes as ‘quarrels’ which are not beneficial to the country.
Speaking on Accra based Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji, Saturday, Mr. Pratt said “…as I was driving in I heard comments being made by Suhiyini about some quarrels on radio and television in the course of the week.
“My brother which of us can be happy with this situation when leading political figures are discussing what happens within the pants of individuals…and the threat is that if you talk, I will expose your nakedness; nakedness in its real sense; I mean it’s incredible”.
The Okay FM presenter was reported to have hurled insults at Mr Agyapong for allegedly insulting the mother and siblings of the President for the latter’s abysmal performance in governance.
She further questioned what Hon Agyapong does aside politics to be that worthy and ridiculed his radio station, Oman FM.
“I’m not saying Mahama is the best or worst president the country has ever had but if you want to attack him, attack his governance; don’t accuse his mother and brother of selling drugs… Kennedy Agyapong, Ghanaians want me to ask you the kind of work you do.
At times we are not able to tell people the truth straight in their faces. Kennedy Agyapong, what work do you do? That radio station [Oman FM] which has collapsed? The station which I cannot even tune in to though I stay around Madina?” she is quoted by OMGVoice to have said on her mid-morning show on Thursday.
Reacting to the claims on Oman FM’s Boiling Point on Thursday evening, Hon Agyapong stated that he will deal with Afia Schwarzenegger. “She can insult anybody but certainly not me… She deserves to be insulted and so I will do.
“I am ready to answer any radio station that will call me on the issue tomorrow. I respect Despite [owner of Okay FM] so much that I cannot take the station on. Bobie did same and I had a problem with my in-law so I will deal with the girl herself. I tell you, she will run away from Ghana. I am not the type who shuts up over issues…” he noted.
But Kwesi Pratt contributing to a panel discussion on with host Suyihini Alhassan, said: “My brother which of us can be happy with this situation when leading political figures are discussing what happens within the pants of individuals?
“Incredible the level of discussion and the threat is that if you talk, I will expose your nakedness; nakedness in its real sense; I mean it’s incredible. This is a country which has enormous problems and difficulties.
This is a country in which up to today some of our people drink from the same source of water as sheep and cows….and our politicians; this is the level of the discourse. This is unbelievable. It is completely amazing” he noted.
