Popular Peace FM Kookrokoo morning show host Kwame Sefa Kayi has been ordered by the National Media Commission to humbly go on his knees and apologise to Mr Yao Amegashie the former Chief Executive Director for DVLA.
Failure to apologise means he is likely to lose his licence with the National Media Commission ( NMC). According to the case brought before the NMC, Kwame Sefa Kayi was recorded on tape making some claims against Yao Amegashie. He claimed that, Amegashie was asked to proceed on leave in 2001 When President John Agyekum Kufuor took over as President.
However in 2009 under Ata Mills NDC era, Amegashie was called back to the same position which is not right. Mr Yao Amegashie found those words offensive and ordered his Lawyer Dometi Kofi Sokpor to report Kwame Sefa Kaye to the NMC disciplinary commitee.
After several years of deliberation on the matter, Kwame Sefa Kayi was found guilty of his words. He has therefore been asked to beg Mr Yao Amegashie over his utterances.
Secondly, he must come on air to announce that all the words he said about Amegashie were not right. He has also been ordered to render same apology on the Peace FM Official website for the world to read and know that what he said about Amegashie were from his own imaginations and not realistic. The National Media Commission explained that, they can only revoke a license of a media practitioner who flout their orders. They can’t impose any fine like what the court does. Else Kwame Sefa Kaye would have paid damages. The National Media Commission is mandated to regulate and bring sanity in the media fraternity in Ghana.
