It’s high times for the Ghanaian personalities sitting on higher places to realize the fact that sexual harassment has many types and they should be very careful about what they say in public. Especially for the males that they should realize that talking about woman’s b*obs and ass is not cool and funny instead it’s harassment.
There is no doubt in the fact that the type of news in which women are speaking up for getting harassed, makes to the highlights on a daily basis. However, men especially male celebrities and influences don’t take notes and go on do the exact same to women on different public platforms. Likewise, for now, Ghanaian well-known personality, the CEO of the Consumer Rights Protection Agency, Kofi Kapito in under major backlash for harassing the Ghanaian host in a likely manner. (sexual)
According to an exclusive report by Ghana News Online, it happened on the just-finished RTP 2019 in which Kofi Kapito got the chance to present an award for the ‘TV Female Newscaster of the Year’ category. The nominees included well-known TV host and personality, Serwaa Amihere to which Kofi couldn’t resist highlighting her butt. He literally made such harassing remarks on the stage which made everyone surprised especially Serwaa Amihere. He said, “Serwaa Amihere… look at your butt, nice.” According to the video of the incident, the cameraman moved his focus to Serwaa right at the moment when Kofi made the remarks and she was stunned to death. However, the host was mature enough that she didn’t make any live drama there.
But the incident never ended there as Serwaa Amihre took to her official Twitter handle and exposed Kofi Kapito as a harasser by posting the video of the incident with a convincing caption. She said in the caption that she used to respect the man a lot but not anymore. She also expressed the fact that the remark from him about her butt was very pointless which made her embarrassed. She said, “I had so much respect for Mr Kofi Kapito. This is a classic case of sexual harassment. I’m appalled by his utterances. This was needless and completely disrespectful!” (sexual)
Serwaa’s post went viral in no time and other celebrities also joined in to speak against Kofi’s behavior. The well-known News Editor, Afia Pokuaa said, “Has a complaint been filed? This is so wrong. So wrong. Kofi Capito, this is so unacceptable. I think you owe Serwaa and all the women in the building that night an apology. This is not cool. Not cool.” The award-winning TV anchor, Nana Aba Anamoah said in the comments, “Unacceptable from Kofi Kapito!” Another major host, Anny Osabutey said, “This is not so cool, Kofi.”
