Controversial prophet, Rev. Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah feels vindicated following the Supreme Court sentencing of three political activists for contempt.
According to him, he gave the prophesy of the incident during his 31st December all night service last year but ‘as usual it was totally ignored by the doubting Thomases in the country’.
“I prophesied that some people will be jailed for speaking against the Supreme Court judges and we prayed to stop it but people condemned me and it has come to pass” Rev Owusu Bempah who is also the founder and leader of Glorious Word Ministry disclosed this in an interview on Adom News Wednesday.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday July 27, 2016 sentenced host of Pampaso on Accra based FM Montie, Salifu Maase and two panelists, Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn to four months in prison for threatening to kill justices of the apex court.
They two together with the show host have been sentenced to four months in prison and a fine of 10,000 cedis each.
Directors of Network Broadcasting Company, operators of Montie FM – Edward Addo, Ato Ahwoi and Kwesi Kyei Atuah have been fined 30,000 cedis and have to pay by close of day Thursday July 28, 2016. Harry Zakour, owner of the frequency was also fined 30,000 cedis.
Describing the incident as unfortunate, Rev. Owusu Bempah urged media practitioners to learn useful lessons from the court’s decision.
“Political commentators and radio presenters must be circumspect in their utterances ahead of this elections year. We have prayed against any violence but their action can plunge Ghana into chaos” he stressed.
The outspoken prophet was however happy with the ruling of the Supreme Court, stating that it will protect dignity of the judiciary and the other arms of government.
“All politicians should take note and stay away from commentaries that are likely to compromise, embarrass or impugn the integrity of the Supreme Court and all other constitutionally mandated bodies which are dully performing their duties.” he observed.
Rev Owusu Bempah cautioned political commentators and journalists to desist from making comments that would compromise, embarrass or impugn the integrity of the Supreme Court ahead of the crucial election on December 7.
