Kennedy Agyapong sued by Multimedia and Kwasi Twum


Maverick politician Kennedy Ohene Agyapong would in the coming days be heading back to the court as Multimedia group and its CEO Kwesi Twum has sued him for defamation.

On July 2, 9, and 19, the firebrand MP made claims on his Net 2 Television and Oman FM stations concerning Joy FM’s Ashanti Region correspondent’s reportage on the Ejura unrest.

When he was cautioned by the media house through its lawyers on Tuesday, July 13, Ken Agyapong turned the heat on the CEO and Joy FM.

“Joy FM the drugs that were used to establish your firm if you joke I will expose you,” the Chairman of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee had said.

“Jones is not dead, I will show you, people, where you used to send the drugs.”

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, as well as associated defamatory commentary, have been carefully and meticulously gathered and formally transcribed and translated.

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