An attempt by a media personality with Angel Fm to concoct lies about Ghana’s free senior high education has received huge reaction from Ghanaians on Facebook.
Ohemaa Sakyiwaa posted on her facebook wall that she spends Thousand Three Hundred Ghana Cedis (GHS1,300) on her child who is in senior High school as payment of school fees.
This comment did not go down well with people who suspects her statement is untrue. They believe is another attempt to throw out lies since they also have children and relatives who are in senior high school but do not pay for fees.
Below is her post and the comments thereafter.
This same journalist was in 2018 assaulted by one Hajia Fati, a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party in Ghana. Hajia Fati attacked the journalist by slapping her because according to her, the reporter did not seek her permission before taking pictures of her whilst at the NPP headquarters on Friday, May 4, 2018.
The journalist was at the NPP headquarters on May 4, 2018 to report on the picking of nomination forms by aspiring national officers of the party.
Whilst there, a suspended First Vice-Chairman of the NPP, Mr Sammy Crabbe went there to pick forms but was asked to go and bring cash since the party was not accepting banker’s draft.
Hajia Fati who stormed the party headquarters upon hearing Sammy Crabbe had been there vowed not to allow him to pick the forms should he return.
Her outbursts created a scene and according to the journalist, in her attempt to capture proceedings with her phone, Hajia Fati pounced on her and slapped her.
The case was reported to the Nima Police for action and ended up in court.
Hajia Fati’s argument
Hajia Fati, later on, explained that she thought the reporter was a member of Sammy Crabbe’s camp who had been sent to take pictures for ulterior motives.
According to her, the reporter looked like an “onion seller” not a journalist as she had come to learn.
After public condemnation, Hajia Fati later rendered an apology to the journalist and the entire journalism fraternity for her behaviour.
