Editor of the Daily Searchlight Newspaper, Kenneth Agyei Kuranchie and his family on Sunday went to the Ebenezer Methodist Church at Akweteman in Accra to offer thanks to God following his release from the Nsawam Prisons after serving 10-day jail term.
He was sentenced to 10 days in prison by the Supreme Court hearing the presidential election petition, on July 2, 2013, for criminal contempt of court following a front page comment he published backing Sammy Awuku's description of the Supreme Court Judges as 'hypocrites and selection', which he (Awuku) later apologised for.
Ken Kuranchie who regained his freedom last Thursday was accompanied to church by loved ones and some NPP supporters.
In an interview with Adom News, Ken Kuranchie noted that he and his family were at church to give thanks to God for his protection while he was jailed.
