You Talk By Heart; I’m Ready For You : Captain Smart Punches Kennedy Agyapong

Published

on

Outspoken Ghanaian media personality Captain Smart has heavily descended on the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong over his incessant threats, blackmails and intimidations against him and other journalists in the country.

It would be recalled that some two months ago, the legislator accused the former presenter of Adom FM and Angel FM of owing him a sum of Ghc10,000 for some 14 air conditioners he borrowed from him in 2018.

Kennedy Agyapong also took to his television station NET2 TV to accuse Captain Smart of defrauding a woman by giving her an invalid cheque for chairs he purchased from her.

Well, Captain Smart has finally responded to Mr Agyapong for what he describes as the misguided utterances of the lawmaker and vowed to match him boot for boot, henceforth.

He explained that the reason for his long silence over Mr Agyapong’s utterances in the past was because he thought the MP was fighting for the ordinary Ghanaian but he has finally been proven wrong.

Captain Smart lamented the non-action taken by the government to deal with the NPP stalwart amid his numerous verbal attacks on journalists.

He insisted that because the lawmaker is allowed to go unpunished for his actions he’s behaving like a ‘demigod’ in the country.

It wouldn’t be the first time the controversial politician has taken journalists to the cleaners for exposing rots in the country and standing for the truth.

In 2018, he launched a verbal war on investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas for his groundbreaking exposé’s and instigated physical attacks on his colleague, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, who was consequently shot dead by some unidentified men on motorbikes in Madina.

Mr Agyapong on Friday, July 9, 2021, is reported to have allegedly threatened to attack Erastus Asare Donkor, a journalist with the Multimedia Group, “for the journalistic work that the latter undertook during the recent shootings and killing incident at Ejura” on his television station.

The Multimedia Group filed a formal complaint against Mr Agyapong as a proactive measure to prevent what happened to Mr Suale on 16 January 2019 from repeating itself in the future.

Kennedy Agyapong has since been hauled before the Privileges Committee of Parliament for his utterances.

‘Get Ready For Us’ : GRA Tells Oswald’s Teacher Mrs Appiah As They Plan To Chase Her For Gift Tax

Published

on

The Ghana Revenue Authority, (GRA), has set its sights on the class teacher who was given the topmost priority on the ‘Our Day’ petition of 9-year-old Oswald to his mother.

Mrs Appiah, a tutor at the Christ Ambassador School in Dansoman, has been described by Oswald as his favourite teacher because she’s really helped him to settle in school.

Therefore, she was going to receive a big bottle of soda drink from the pupil. But fortunes changed after the son-to-mother letter went viral and attracted sponsorship from top companies, beverage brands, educational and financial institutions among others.

It appears the state revenue mobilization agency keenly monitored all the donations made to ensure that the ‘Our Day’ goes beyond a day’s event and has come through with its intentions.

In a post sighted by KUBILIVE, the GRA shared a photo of Oswald and his teacher, Mrs Appiah, on its official Instagram account and indicated that they will be coming after her for gift tax.

Amid laughing emojis, the company joked that it will pardon Oswald because he was too young to commit to taxes, but served notice to the teacher to prep herself to ‘pay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar’ (pun intended).

The post read below.

“The boy is too young for gift tax but somebody should kindly tell Mrs. Appiah to get ready for us ???”, the company captioned the snap.

The move comes against the backdrop of the Revenue Authority going after Naa Dromo, the second daughter of renowned preacher Sam Korankye Ankrah, who received $1million dollars as a wedding gift from some of her friends.

Consequently, the GRA in a letter dated July 15, extended an invitation to Naa Dromo to pay gift tax on the money and for further discussions for defaulting in tax compliance.

However, her father who is the Apostle General of the Royal house Chapel International said the cheque was a dummy, describing it as a “faith cheque”.
