Joy Fm’s News Editor, Araba Koomson has finally responded to the acerbic attacks launch at her by businessman and lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong expressing appreciation for the support extended to her by colleagues.
MyNewsGh.com last week reported of how controversial lawmaker for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong launch an unprovoked attack on Joy Fm’s female News Editor, Araba Koomson whose crime was just reporting happenings at the Ghana Maritime Authority(GMA) which is already an issue of public knowledge.
Mr Kennedy Agyapong who has not been enthused his darling boy and Director General of the Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA), Mr Kwame Owusu was on the chopping board of the media where critical questions were being asked went personal in his attacks .
The lawmaker was heard ironically on a multimedia platform attacking Araba Koomsoon of Joy Fm and Komla Klutse of TV3 for their interest in the matter he felt was rather in pursuit of an image smearing campaign.
Mr Kennedy Agyapong who has not hidden his close relationship with Mr Owusu used unprintable words to describe the two journalists.
When reminded by the host Osei Bonsu he was on live radio and therefore needed to be civil and polite in his choice of words as observed by MyNewsGh.com, he appeared more infuriated and went personal on the female news editor of the Multimedia Group.
“The journalists are accusing him of going overboard if I was the one I would have said more because I saw Araba. Someone sent the news video from US to me…I saw Araba Joy TV saying these are the kind of people we use our taxpayers’ money them…excuse me Araba! How much is your meager pay? He quizzed.
Look at your face, the man’s son has completed a law school in the UK. If Araba claims she is intelligent she should go and write an exam in the UK. Some journalists are so foolish and stupid they want to run down some respected persons. What nonsense is going on? And that other stupid one at TV3”
In a rather sober response, Araba Koomson has this to say on a platform of a female colleague” Ladies I am so grateful for your support and kind words. Some of you have also reached out privately to me, encouraging me. It is really heartwarming to know that I can always count on your support, which has strengthened my resolve. God bless each and every one you”
