Popular Ghanaian comedian and actor, Abdul Waris Umaru, known as Comedian Waris has reacted to comments made by Mr. Kwesi Gyan-Appenteng who is the chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC) on the banning of ritualist speaking live on Tv.
Most netizens took to social media yesterday to express their disappointment on ritualists who are given the opportunity to advertise themselves live on TV. They expressed their disappointment through the hashtag “StopMoneyRitualsOnTv.
However, in an interview this morning, when the NMc boss was asked to compromise on the ritual killing that went on in kasoa and the social media trend that is crying out to the National Media Commission to quickly act on the matter, as it is believed that the teenager who killed the 10-years-old boy were motivated by a ritualist advertisement on Tv.
The chairman of the commission said, and I quote “To put it on a charge sheet that this is the reason why they did that, I think that this is a very lazy investigation’. which means relating the sudden killing of the 10-year-old kasoa boy’s death to the increase in the number of spiritualists on national television is the lazy man’s submission of investigation.
Comedian Waris reacting to what the chairman of the NMC said, says it’s rather unfortunate and heartbroken for a whole boss of NMC to come out with such a response.
He also stated emphatically that the leaders in this country don’t know how to do their jobs and the NMc boss is a typical example of those leaders.
Comedian also recounted what he and his family went through when his brother was murdered by some unknown persons for money rituals.
