Former anchor of “The Seat Show” on NET2 TV Justice Kwaku Annan has described how a remark he made was misinterpreted as a slur meant at the vice president, which incident ultimately cost him his job.
In a teaser for an interview that hasn’t yet aired on the KSM show, he revealed that during one of his broadcasts, he asked the Vice President a rhetorical question regarding the challenging economic conditions the nation was going through.
“Mr. Vice President, I questioned the present Vice President. Can you explain to us these things that you said about former president Mahama? My YouTube subscribers became horrified when I made this remark and started criticising me there.
He continued by saying that when he replied to his YouTube subscribers, his message was misinterpreted as being addressed to the Vice President, while in fact it wasn’t.
He claimed that his supporters were going after him in the comments section: “That’s why I’m going after the Vice President, blah blah. Whatever comment I provided in that video was not directed at the Vice President but rather at my YouTube subscribers.
I said, “You folks didn’t hear, you didn’t see when I was criticising President Mahama for his economic mess? What sort of garbage is that? He was tense.
The owner of NET2 TV and frequent guest Kennedy Agyapong said at a gathering why he took Kwaku Annan’s political chat show off the air: the host had insulted the Vice President during one of the broadcasts.
Annan has claimed Kennedy Agyapong is being exploited as a scapegoat for narrow-minded motives even though he denies ever attacking Bawumia.
Agyapong, who is also a congressman for Assin Central, has not yet responded to the allegations that he halted a show-related probe into churches after being approached by some prominent priests.
