Founder of Engineers and Planners, Mr. Mahama Ibrahim who also is the direct brother of Former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has sued the Ashanti regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party for Defamation.
Mr. Mahama is praying the court to compel Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as chairman wontumi to pay up to the tune of Ghc 5 million for assassinating his character on a public Television Station in Ghana. Chairman Wontumi, purportedly claimed that he made his wealth from unlawful means.
Chairman Wontumi allegedly suggested that the businessman benefited from stolen state funds when his brother, John Mahama, was President.
Chairman wontumi also accused Mr. Mahama of Snatching Kenpong’s girlfriend and also buying a house for the same girl. The girl in question is a famous social media goddess who goes by the name Hajia for real
In the writ, Mr. Mahama quotes Chairman Wontumi, who was speaking on Wontumi TV, as saying: “He has bought a car; it is said he has bought a car for Hajia for Real. Then he has bought a house and given it to her in addition, then he has snatched Kenpong’s girl. Because the money that [he has], it was when we just came into power, that his brother went and stole money for him. Do you understand?”
Mr. Mahama says he read the comments to mean he is “in possession of stolen wealth or money… tainted with stealing.”
He is thus seeking an unqualified apology and “retraction of the said [defamatory] statements within seven days of judgement.”
The editor of daillymailgh , Kenneth Mensah, has also been sued and is facing the same defamation claims. Kenneth Mensah published Chairman Wontumi’s comments on his website.
Mr. Mahama noted a lack of remorse from the defendants in the case saying they “have not made any attempt to apologize or to even pull down the malicious publications.”
