Cantankerous media personality, Afia Pokua (Vim Lady) has envisaged via a post on her official Facebook page that there could be more killings of journalists in coming weeks due to the threats by some politicians on the media following the 2020 general elections.
Per the content of the post, Afia Pokua reiterated that such deadly threats have been a trend from politicians and their followers in every election year stating that it will come as no surprise when Ghana wakes up to the news of the death of top journalists.
She wrote this on social media;
“The way Politicians are threatening media people, we should not be surprised if we wake up to news that a journalists has been KILLED or maimed in the coming weeks.
Both NDC and NPP know journalists have NO CONTROL over election results but only report what is COUNTED at the polling stations and collation centers in the presence of their PARTY AGENTS but they still lie to their followers that the media has stolen results.
Why must journalists be the target of attack every election while those who contest sleep This profession is not worth OUR LIVES”
Her remarks come after some persons from the opposition NDC issued threats and started attacking some media houses over their election results, questioning them to produce their sources.
Don’t forget, NDC’s Asiedu Nketia during a press briefing a week ago blasted UTV, JOY NEWS, TV3, others for projecting falsified figures in cohort with the NPP.
