Owusu Bempah in deep sh!t as court orders his bankers to transfer GHC300k to Ibrahim Mahama as damages

A High Court in Accra has ordered the National Investment Bank to pay Ghs310,000 from the account of Ghana Gas Public Relations Officer, Ernest Owusu Bempah to business mogul Ibrahim Mahama.

Court documents making rounds show Owusu Bempah operates account number 1035087022871 at the NIB and the court, having convicted the defendant of defamation ordered that said amount be paid.

The court maintained that in case the amount in the account is less than the defamation award, the entire account should be emptied anyway.

Our readers will recall we were the first to report in October 2019 when the same Accra High Court slapped a Gh¢300,000 fine on Ernest Owusu Bempah, Communications Director of Ghana Gas Company Limited and Despite Group of Companies in a defamation suit.

The Court presided over by Justice Georgina Mensah Datsa ruled that the comments of the outspoken politician on UTV Despite Media were defamatory of business Mogul, Ibrahim Mahama.

Mr. Mahama who is CEO of Engineers and Planners had sued both UTV and Owusu Bempah demanding GH¢2 million for the defamatory comments.

But the judge awarded GH¢300,000 instead and directed the defendants to publish a retraction and apology in the Daily Graphic and on the same platform those defamatory words were used against Ibrahim Mahama.

They have also been directed to remove the said defamatory material about the plaintiffs from all archives on their website and on the internet.

The judge also warned communicators who go on media platforms to malign innocent people to desist from such acts because that will not be tolerated.

In the words of the judge, “Ernest Owusu Bempah by publishing those words directed at the person of Ibrahim Mahama, he has defamed him. I shall proceed to grant judgment in favour of the Plaintiff, Ibrahim Mahama. As we move towards next year’s election, we need to be guided.” Justice Georgina Datsa advised at the time.

Owusu Bempah appealed the decision and lost.

Mr Ibrahim Mahama was represented in court throughout the proceedings by his Aide Rafik Mahama. The judge cited Mr. Mahama’s absence as reason for not awarding the full amount of GH¢2 million against the defendants but she concluded by saying she understands the busy schedule of the plaintiff hence his absence in court.

The legal team of Mr Ibrahim Mahama was led by Lawyer Reindorf Twumasi Ankrah and supported by Gloria Amoah and Makafui Dzimabi.

Things are not as bad as today as they were when NDC was in power – Kofi Bentil

Things are not as bad as today as they were when NDC was in power - Kofi Bentsil

Things are not as bad as today as they were when NDC was in power – Kofi Bentsil

A Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil, has said that though things are not what Ghanaians expect under the Akufo-Addo administration, but they are far better than they were under Mahama.

Sharing his views on the botched FixtheCountry demonstration with its concomitant issues on JoyNews’ Newsfile on Saturday, May 8, 2021, Mr. Bentil indicated that much as there appears to be a lot of challenges in the system now, they cannot be worse than when John Mahama was in power.

“Things are bad but they’re not as bad as they were under Mahama. I repeat, things aren’t good but they are better than we experienced under the NDC. Our expectations have not been met but one cannot say that what we went through under Mahama was better than now. No!” he emphasized.

A group of Ghanaians, it could be recalled, began a social media campaign aimed at asking the leadership of this country to fix the system since, in their views, things have gone bad.

Dubbed ‘FixtheCountry’, the people behind it have raised issues with water supply, electricity supply, unemployment, increase in taxes and levies, general economic situation in the country as the drive behind this campaign.

A street demonstration towards baring their teeth to the Akufo-Addo administration over the aforementioned issues has been put on hold due to a restraining order against them by the Ghana Police Service citing COVID-19 restrictions.

I Will Never Go Hungry Even If Kwaku Oteng Sacks Me From ABN – Captain Smart

I Will Never Go Hungry: The  30 days suspension of Captain Smart from Angel Broadcasting Network ABN has caused a stir among Ghanaians and people are talking and wondering why Captain Smart who recently resigned from Adom FM and joined ABN has to be put on suspension.

Well, the obvious reason may be the firebrand journalist’s continuous attack on politicians whom he feels are corrupt and not helping the nation.

Paul Adom Otchere, host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV had an interview with Captain Smart on his show largely on his suspension from Angel Broadcasting Network. In the interview, Smart made it clear to his critic in the industry who were rejoicing at his suspension that he will never go hungry even if the founder of the media company sacks him.

He also revealed that his suspension is for a month and that after it has expired he will go back to the radio station and continue his work as usual.

He said, “I have brain, my brain is working so there is no way I will go hungry even if the president of ABN decides to terminate my contract”.

“If Kweku Oteng says he cannot work with me again, Praise God, I will leave and will never get hungry because I’m not a lazy person, Yes my brain works. So I called Doc and he said people in government are calling him and the government is using the Ghana Revenue Authority because they say I talk too much” he added.

Rev Owusu Bempah gives new serious prophecy about John Mahama

Prophet Owusu Bempah scares Mahama with new prophecy


Prophet Owusu Bempah scares Mahama; The Founder and general overseer of Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah has given a new prophecy concerning NDC presidential candidate, John Mahama.

In a new video in front of his congregation, the man of God said Mahama has been cursed with back luck spiritually like Cain in the Bible.

So this is the reason why he can never win an election.

“He can stand for 1000 times and he’ll lose 1000 times. If you think I am lying, you can write it down and see”, he said authoritatively.

Owusu Bempah went on to say that Mahama needs a divine hand on his life to reverse that curse.

“It is only that divine hand that can lift the curse on him. If it is not so, people will deceive him that you’ll win but when he stands again, he’ll be disgraced. It’s not that people are not voting for him but it is the curse at work”.

“He needs someone experienced in spiritual things like myself to give him support or advice”, he stated.

He went on to say that when he says things of this nature, people come to insult him but he’ll love to warn those people to keep mute. Because the words are not from him.

“Anytime I speak you insult me, yet, the things I say come to pass, so can’t you see that the things I say are not ordinary?”, he asked.
