Kennedy Agyapong, Assin Central MP in trouble

 

Chief executive officer (CEO), Kwasi Twum, of Multimedia Group of Companies and one among its subsidiaries, Joy FM, are heading to court today, Wednesday, 1st September, over “repeated false and defamatory statements” made by Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Assin Central Member of Parliament on his radio and television stations.

On Wednesday, July 2021, the MP made a statement announcing the decision said: “Joy FM, The Multimedia Group of Companies, and therefore the Chief executive officer, Kwasi Twum has been compelled and have taken a firm decision to afford the MP, his media organization and three of his employees, the chance to prove the allegations in court”.

The suit concerns allegations made by the firebrand MP on his Net 2 Television and Oman FM stations on July 2, 9, and 19 about Joy FM’s Ashanti Region correspondent’s reportage on the Ejura disturbances.

Reports say, Kennedy who doubles as the Chairman of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee was cautioned by the media house through its lawyers on Tuesday, 13th July 2021, Kennedy Agyapong turned the heat on Joy FM and the Chief executive officer.

The MP, Kennedy Agyapong said “Joy FM the drugs that were used to establish your firm if you joke I will expose you”.

“Jones isn’t dead, I will be able to show you, people, where you used to send the drugs.”

But The Multimedia Group’s statement said the broadcasts and publications “falsely sought to portray the plaintiffs as unethical, unprofessional and criminal”.

“The broadcasts and publications, also as associated defamatory commentary, are carefully and meticulously gathered and formally transcribed and translated.

“Our lawyers are under firm instructions to sue to clear our names.”

The suit also cites two online news organizations as defendants for circulating and re-publishing the allegations “without care or any plan to verify” the statements.

“We assure all concerned; our cherished audiences, stakeholders, clients, also as family and friends, alumni of The Multimedia Group and associates of the CEO who have and still reach out to us, that our lawyers will today file the suit,” management of the media station said within the statement.

“We appreciate your patience and unrelenting support during this pursuit to vindicate our rights, reputations, and business”, Multimedia Group of Companies.
