A private legal practitioner has described radio host of Radio XYZ, Mugabe Masse, as a nuisance and a threat to Ghana’s democracy.
Speaking in an interview with Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the lawyer said, the radio host if not cautioned, will destabilise the country through his unguarded statements and unprofessional conduct.
According to him, the media must be careful because the platform through which you work is a huge once hence the need for practitioners to be guarded in their commentary.
‘’Mugabe Maase should be cautioned. He is a nuisance,’’ he said.
He blamed the Supreme Court for failing to deal with him ruthlessly when he was dragged before the court over the infamous Montie 3 saga.
He has also called on the Ghana Association President (GJA) Affail Monney to resign from his position for failing to crack the whip on Mugabe Maase over his reckless behaviour and unprofessional conduct but issued a statement to condemn Prophet Owusu Bempah, who stormed Radio XYZ last Friday in search of Mugabe to harm him for reportedly calling him a pig.
To him, if under the current GJA President we have journalists like Mugabe Maase-then he cannot manage his own people and has to resign with immediate effect.
Lawyer Ampaw stressed on the need for Mugabe to be arrested and prosecuted for creating fear and panic and the grounds for insecurity.
Although he commended the police for inviting Prophet Owusu Bempah for storming the premises of Radio XYZ, to allegedly threaten to harm a radio host, he also underscored the need for journalists who behave unprofessionally to be checked.
‘’People are insulting the man, people are making life unbearable for him and if the state cannot protect him, he would protect himself, Why do you invite Bempah and leave Maase out? I support Bempah because he has been attacked and insulted for far too long,’’ he said.
