They are also to bring seven boxes each of schnapps, castle bridge,
cloth Holland, as well as seven crates of white eggs and red eggs.
They have been given a two-week ultimatum to settle the fine.
This was after the Gborbu Wulomo Shitse, Overlord of the Ga-Dangme
state invited the presenter and the producer of the religious show
‘Adom Mmere’ to appear before the traditional leaders
to justify their comments.
They are said to have proclaimed that Teshie and Nungua towns are
plagued with witchcraft and a deity in the town called ‘Ogbee Sango’
who is responsible for curses and misfortunes in the area.
They are also said to have claimed that it was impossible for any
business to flourish at Nungua as the founders of the town are
witches and wizards.
They further claimed that Nungua is the headquarters of
all witches in the area.
According to Kasapafmonline, Evangelist Asare, who appeared with
the programme’s manager of the station, apologized to the large
gathering comprising representatives from various Ga Dangme groups.
Osu Klottey and Naadu Wulom Numo Osikan Kpeneku said the items
were to pacify and cleanse all the Ga Dangme clans for
disparaging and denigrating the people of the land.
While apologizing profusely for the unfortunate incident, they assured
that such an incident will not happen again.
They also said they are willing to use their medium to project and
promote activities of the Nungua township.
The programme’s manager added that they were prepared to offer
opportunities for two people who want to work with the outfit.
