Okatakyie blasts politicians; says they’re the reason journalists can’t speak truth to power

Firebrand broadcaster and host of ‘Asempa Yetia‘ on Power 97.9 FM, Okatakyie Afrifa-Mensah has blamed journalists for the slow pace of development in the country.

He said the journalists have left their watchdog duties paving way for politicians to fleece the citizens through various means.

Speaking to Kwame Minkah on Toton Sansan on TV XYZ, Afrifa-Mensah bemoaned the leadership of Ghana over the past 30 years has been abysmal yet Ghanaian journalists, who belong to the fourth arm of government, who are mandated to put politicians in check rather take monies from politicians to do cover-ups.

“I don’t want to be referred to as a journalist because most journalists are not doing what is expected of them,” Okatakyie told Minkah Thursday morning.
