Re: KABA was frustrated, hated at multimedia over good relationship with NDC - DJ Oxy

This publication is actually not intended for rebutting the perceived truthfulness of the categorical assertions made by one Alfred Kwame Larbi aka DJ Oxygen, a radio owner, about the multimedia’s deceased radio presenter Mr Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong.

In a publication just read on Ghanaweb under their General News of Sunday, 26 November 2017 as allegedly sourced from rainbowradioonline.com and under the web link: https://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/KABA-was-frustrated-hated-at-multimedia-over-good-relationship-with-NDC-DJ-Oxy-603985, the deceased Mr Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong was a hired NDC guy at the multimedia to do their dirty politicking for them.

Truly, the style of his programme presentations and how he was conspicuously biased towards the opponents of the NDC goes to confirm the assertions by DJ Oxy.

For all that he stood to gain as an individual, he did not give a hoot about the suffering of the Ghanaian masses and how President Mahama with his NDC-led government, cronies and family members were depleting the nation’s coffers for their selfish gains. He was clearly supportive of them through and through at the suffering and expense of the Ghanaian masses for all he stood to gain as an individual.

Yes, it is the standing norm and tradition not to speak ill about any deceased person regardless of how bad they were while alive. By speaking the truth about them, especially when that truth exposes them as bad persons is deemed uncouth on the part of the speaker. What a highest nonsensical hypocrisy that is!

How can the future generation learn not to repeat the mistakes of their predecessors if we failed to pass on the truth to them? Why are people imitating Adolf Hitler, the late despised Germany Chancellor who brought about World War II, always arrested, forced to resign their posts or publicly rebuked?

If the truth about him and his wickedness had not been documented or told, the present generation and posterity would not know what evils he committed but would have adored and held him in high esteem.

Telling the truth hurts but it brings comfort in the end. Those journalists seeking their selfish interests by supporting corrupt politicians and leaders should please stop before they are caught by karma.

For all the money and gifts he received from the NDC when they were plundering the nation while being cleverly defended by KABA and his ilk, to ensure the continuity of their deplorable thievery, how does he profit from his gains now in death?

Does the bible not say, what does it profit a man if he gains all the wealth of the world and loses his life?

“The chickens have now come home to roost” meaning, bad deeds or words return to discomfort their perpetrator. With the money gained by dubious means, he might have eaten himself to death by he looks of his confirmed obesity culminating in the enlargement of his heart, liver and kidneys as diagnosed at his post mortem.

In this modern day and age as our white contemporaries are advancing at astronomical height, encouraging the youth to become entrepreneurs and more successful, here we are in Ghana having our whole bunch of ignoramus journalists trying to kill their successful ones using juju, indication of how backward they are.

If indeed KABA was killed due to some of his colleagues casting evil spell on him through juju, then God save Ghanaian journalists most of whom are not only greedy, biased, unprofessional but inward-looking.

May we learn lessons from KABA’s death to begin to do the right things. Shame on the greedy and juju-infested Ghanaian journalists.

I do not mean to compound the emotional pains of the bereaved family but to admonish the Ghanaian journalists against their selfish quest for wealth and fame made overnight and through condemnable means.

My deepest condolences to the bereaved KABA family.
