Popular spiritualist, Nana Kwaku Bonsam born Stephen Osei Mensah has asked authorities to check and reprimand the activities of a popular Man of God which he felt were against the rights of children.
Speaking in an interview with Champion TV, the well-known fetish priest indicated that the man of God in question was fond of parading young children in his church and accused them of witchcraft.
He said the action amounted to defamation of character which was a crime.
He continued that the action of the Man of God was clearly an infringement on the rights of the young children because it was going to change their lives for the worst.
He added that such children would be cut off from society and would eventual have to stop attending school due to the stigma and superstition that has come to be attached to witchcraft in Ghana and in Africa in general.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said he was comparatively fine with the fact that some old people would be paraded and branded as witches.
He therefore called on the president to put his foot down to put an end to the disgracing of children on TV by the said Man of God.
