Lawyer and National Communication’s director for the biggest opposition party NDC , Kakra Essamuah has incured the wrath of listeners of Cape Coast based Okokroko 96.9 for inciting Fantes against Twi Presenters in Cape Cost.
The Communications Director was called on Okokro FM 96.9 by the award winning morning show host, Osahene Kwame Dapaah to respond to an issue he raised asking Government to place ban on importation of small arms but instead , Kakra Essamuah towed a tribal line insisting that the presenter speaks Fante before granting him the interview. “Why should you be speaking Twi on a Cape Coast based radio station he questioned ??” live on air.
When Osahene Kwame Dapaah reminded him that, he Kakra Asamoah is also a Fante working in Accra as a lawyer, he responded that he is working in Accra because there is no High court in Saltpond, he rounded up by threatening to speak to the Presenter’s employers, “let’s continue I will speak to your employer ”
The banter went on live on Okokroko FM 96.9 till the Presenter could not continue the morning show again because he he was emotionally traumatized.
This comment from high profile person like Kakra Essamuah seem to macho an agenda started by some Cape Coast Presenters putting pressure or radio employers to sack Twi speaking Presenters on air but my question is ?
If this is allowed to happen will big profile presenters like Dr. Pounds, Kwame Dwokoto , Eddyray etc working in Accra , Kumasi etc be sacked to go back and work in their towns??? especially when we are
global citizens in a global world. The UN sustainable development goals make a case for migrants because together we can achieve sustainable development goal
