Speaking on Joynewsontv’s New File programme on Saturday May 15, Kenneth Ashigbey made some daring revelations in regard to how journalists are manhandled in Ghana. According to him, one way to curb the situation is to teach journalists how to fight.
He believes doing so will help journalists to defend themselves, anytime they’re in trouble.
We need to start teaching journalists how to fight and handle themselves. The constitution us to hold leadership to account. We need to protect it he established.
Mr Kenneth Ashigbey was making his views known on how Caleb Kudah was assaulted on Tuesday when he went to take some videos at national security ministry. Caleb narrating the ordeal tells how, he was brutally beaten, slapped and kicked on countless occasions by some national security operatives.
He also believe journalism is not a crime.
Journalism is not a crime and I still insist on that. It is in the interest of Ghana that this investigation is independent. An independent body must investigate this matter he concluded
