Wontumi Multimedia finally apologises to Manhyia

The General Manager of Wontumi Multimedia, Kofi Agyei, has apologised to the Manhyia Palace for some derogatory remarks made by one of their show hosts, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, against the chiefs of the Kumasi Traditional Council.

Ampaw’s comments, considered offensive by traditional rulers, led to a summons from the Kumasi Traditional Council for the CEO of Wontumi Multimedia, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, known as Chairman Wontumi, and Lawyer Ampaw to appear and explain their actions.

“He (Wontumi) should come along with Maurice Ampaw and the Management of his media house so they answer why they decided to use their air time to disrespect Nananom,” ordered the Council.

Facing the repercussions of these remarks, Wontumi Multimedia‘s General Manager expressed regret and offered an unqualified apology ahead of their scheduled visit to the Manhyia Palace on January 29.

“He erred in his speech and spoke against traditional authorities at the Manhyia palace. It was wrong, and so we are here to apologize. Management of the media house will go to the Palace but ahead of that, we want to use this channel to render an unqualified apology. We are on our knees. We plead that the traditional authorities forgive us,” Mr Agyei stated during a broadcast on Monday evening.

He further emphasized that the media house would never use its platform to disrespect authorities and acknowledged the support received from Manhyia Palace.

This unexpected apology aims to mend the strained relationship caused by the offensive remarks, signaling a potential resolution between Wontumi Multimedia and the traditional authorities.
