The Management of Multimedia Group, operators of Accra-based Asempa FM has suspended one of its on-air staff, Nana Akua Acheampomaa Sarfo-Adu for making ‘derogatory and insulting’ utterances against Former President John Dramani Mahama, ABC News can report.
An internal memo announcing her suspension, sighted by ABC News suggests that the embattled broadcaster has been suspended for one month without pay as punishment for her misconduct.
Nana Akua, while presenting a show on Asempa FM dubbed ‘Kanawu’ on November 11, 2019, used ‘unpleasant words’ against the person of Mr Mahama, attracting an apology from the management of the media organization.
While reacting to a video in which the Former President was captured weeding along a road, Nana Akua, who appeared to have been disgruntled by the act, made scornfully abusive remarks to reflect her displeasure at Mr Mahama’s action.
In a viral video, the NDC flagbearer was spotted with a mower clearing the weeds in the middle belt of the ‘Mahama’ Road in front of the new Military Cemetery in Accra because “it was obstructing motorists.”
