Peace Fm’s morning show host Kwame Sefa Kayi says the Montie 3 saga was the lowest point of 2016 for him, describing it as an ’embarrassing moment’ for all of us and a ‘blot’ on our collective consciences.
Kwame Sefa Kayi said the issue blighted all of us, the media, politicians, judges and the general public and should simply not have happened.
Speaking on the Joy News political programme Newsfile, Sefa Kayi said the entire saga – where three journalists were jailed for threatening Supreme Court justices and were later granted a Presidential pardon – was the low point of the year for him.
“Never again should we – those of us on radio, television, those of us in the media – use the power of the media to so denigrate, malign and insult people to the extent that a whole Supreme Court had to come in…and then the theatre that happened afterwards that culminated in a sitting president remitting their sentence… I just hope it never happens again.”
He added: “…That’s what really gave me the lowest low… I think it was an embarrassing moment for all of us – journalists, politicians, ordinary, everyday Ghanaians, judges. It’s a blot on our conscience, I think, a very big blot”.
