The commentary of Sam Jonah K.B.E is still making headlines in Ghana. It can be recalled that one of Ghana’s big heads noted that corruption in the country is soaring and the culture of silence dominating.
These comments did not go down too well with some big wigs of the NPP. Some like former president J. A. Kufuor, Ursula Owusu and pro NPP journalist Paul Adom Otchere have argued that Sam Jonah goofed with some of his comments.
Kevin Taylor, a pro NDC journalist however entirely agrees with Sam Jonah. According to him Sam Jonah was on point and has finally broken from years of his cowardice. He adds that he is daring anyone to come out and point out the errors in the statements of Sam Jonah. He paid glowing tributes to Sam Jonah for coming out bold to speak and challenged others to follow suit.
“He has been a coward all these years. For once he has been a man and has spoken truth to power. Someone should point out something in Sam Jonah’s speech. There is nothing wrong. If we get 10 Sam Jonah’s who will be bold to speak things will change in the next few months. He spoke about the high cost of living. Isn’t it true? It is true. President Akufo-Addo has disappointed us all. Ghanaians are living in fear and poverty” Kevin Taylor said.
On a scale of 1-10, how true are the statements of Sam Jonah? Is Ghana indeed living under a culture of press censorship? Do you agree with Kelvin Taylor?
