Read the full statement by ATWAG over assault on Sammy Kay

It has become necessary, as an association, to react to an incident that happened yesterday at Stonebwoy‘s Bhim Concert. This is about a fracas between ATWAG member, Sammy Kay and some police officers at the concert at 11:26 pm.

ATWAG investigations revealed that Sammy Kay was filming footballer, Asamoah Gyan and television personality, Efia Odo. However, a police officer asked him to stop and delete the video.

Our information is that the order to stop filming and delete the recording did not come from Asamoah Gyan nor his manager.

Sammy Kay, therefore, did not yield to the officer’s orders. Rather, he told him that he had a good relationship with Gyan. Therefore, the footballer would not be bothered if he was filmed.

The police officer still went ahead and attacked Sammy Kay. This led to a scuffle between the policeman (together with his other colleagues) and Sammy Kay, which got the latter injured.

He rushed to the Emergency Ward at the 37 Military Hospital.

Kwame Dadzie, the Public Relations Officer of ATWAG, together with two other media colleagues followed up to the hospital, helped him get a folder, did x-ray and bought some drugs for him.

He was discharged from the hospital around 4 am today (Saturday).

More of the statement

ATWAG, as a professional body, is taking steps to liaise with the employers of Sammy Kay (the Despite Group of Companies) to see how best to handle the matter.

That notwithstanding, the association (ATWAG) condemns acts by civilians or security personnel who have the tendency to either harm or muzzle individuals in the media fraternity.

The attack was unprovoked during our member’s line of work and we condemn it in no uncertain terms.

Reports of police officers brutalizing citizens in their line of duty in recent times have become rampant. Therefore, we would like to call on the government and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to bring an end to it.

Thank you.

Sex Is A ‘Tourism Booster’ – Abeiku Santana

Ghanaian radio and TV presenter, Abeiku Aggrey Santana talks about the various forms of tourism. He stressed the need to encourage and promote sex as a tourism booster.

Moreover, according to him, most tourists come to Ghana not only for the tourist sites, rich culture and history. Also, they come for our men and women.

“Sex tourism is not a promotion of promiscuity. What we are saying is, let’s have interracial marriage or relationships. When foreigners come let them like you as a man or woman and when that happens they will tend to continue the relationship with you”

Furthermore, he stated that even though Ghana has not legalized sex trade, there are people doing it. Therefore, it is about time the youth were educated about the advantages and looming opportunities in sex tourism. Also, he added that countries like Kenya, Gambia, Senegal educated their citizens to make themselves approachable and appealing to foreigners.

“There are a lot of foreigners who come here, they like us. However, they can’t say it and we also like them but we also do not tell them, our problem is with the approach” 

Also, he reacted to issues on exploitation. The Kaya Tours CEO said those exploited were only because they lacked requisite education.

“People who have been exploited are those who have not been educated, if you are educated and you know what is at stake for you, you will not allow yourself to be exploited because you have an agenda and aim” 

Government Declares January 7 As A Public Holiday

To all the holiday lovers, here’s a new one to add to your calendar.

Government has officially declared Monday, January 7, 2019 as Constitution Day and will be observed as a public holiday nationwide.

A press release dated December 27 and signed by the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery has stated.

Earlier this month, legislation was laid in parliament on government’s proposal of new holidays to be observed in the country.

Government sought to amend the public holiday Act 2001 (Act 601) with the introduction of the ‘Constitution Day’ which falls on January 7 every year.

The amendment also proposed that the Africa Union day, marked on May 25,

and Republic Day on July 1 be made commemorative days.

January 7, 1993, was the day the current Constitution came into force for the Fourth Republic of Ghana. This, however, was after its approval at a Referendum held on April 28, 1992.

January 7 is also the day new Heads of State are sworn into office. The memo from the Interior Ministry said it was worth setting aside January 7 as Constitution Day “to acknowledge our collective efforts as a country in ensuring that the tenets of democracy, the rule of law and the principles of constitutionalism are upheld.”

We will resist Gov’t’s new holidays – Minority

Meanhwile, the Minority in Parliament is also mobilizing a broad-based coalition to put pressure on the government to withdraw the Public Holidays Amendment Act.

According to Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the latest amendment amounts to disrespect of the legacy of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president.

The North Tongu MP, in a Citi News interview with Duke Mensah Opoku said the minority will vehemently resist the attempt by government to have the holidays changed.

“It is important to serve notice to the government that the Ghanaian people will not be insulted. Our history will not be revised. We will not accept this fascist, familiar attempt to revise the history of our country.

President Akufo-Addo should know that he is really playing with fire and he is

going to be faced with the kind of resistance that his government has never

witnessed nor experienced. There is going to be a series of resistance.

There are some things you will not touch. We would have thought that Akufo-Addo

will stay on his manifesto promises which he has so far failed to deliver on. The abysmal performance that he has so far exhibited,” he said.

In the interview, Stonebwoy stated:

“God knows I don’t owe you all, all I did was to give you a big song on your beat and you had to ride on that. This is not the neat way to demand something from me, ask all the big producers what they do and learn from them.”

“You came into my Instagram DM and how do you drag my name in the mud. If I unfollow you, how does it hurt you? If you demand anything from me, come in a better way.”
