Roaming Reporter of Kumasi based Pure FM 95.7, Ambassador Osei Kwadwo has called on the Parliament of Ghana to pass the Broadcasting bill to ban Ritualists, Juju Men, Occultism and Mallams from Television and Radio stations.
Ambassador Osei Kwadwo comments follow the murder of a 10-year-old boy at Kasoa in the central region which has been attributed to the proliferation of ‘juju spiritualists’ on television channels.
Ambassador Osei Kwadwo in a Facebook post cited by Ghtimesonline.com urged Parliament to pass the Broadcast Law to honour Ismael, the 10-year-old boy who was murdered by 2 teenagers at Kasoa for rituals.
Below is his statement.
PASS/MAKE A LAW TO BAN ACTIVITIES OF RITUALISTS, JUJU MEN ON TV TO HONOUR ISHMAEL
As a Citizen of Ghana and not a Spectator, I’m advocating for the ban of activities of RITUALISTS, MALLAMS, JUJU MEN and OCCULTISM on television and radio stations in Ghana.
National Media Commission has failed to ban the activities of RITUALISTS, MALLAMS, JUJU MEN and OCCULTISM on television and radio stations in Ghana because there is no law to support that move.
Since Members of Parliament are lawmakers, I and a section of Ghanaians will be glad if a law will be passed to ban the activities of RITUALISTS and others from TV and Radio Stations to honour the 10-year-old Ishmael, who was killed by two teenagers in an uncompleted building for rituals.
The soul of Ismael can surely Rest in Peace if Ghana honours him by banning the activities of these RITUALISTS on TV and Radio Stations.
Aside from Ishmael’s issue, similar issues have happened and it happened behind the scene because it is so strange how people have been murdered in this country.
I believe passing the law to ban the activities of these Ritualists will help National Media Commission to enforce the law and remove these Ritualists from our TV and Radio Stations.
Yes, MPs are not agents of development but we all know MPs are the agents of making laws so this is the time Ghanaians want to see your action.
I’m a Citizen but not a Spectator.
I’m a Citizen of Ghana.
