- Kencity Media owned by Kennedy Agyapong is said to be broke
- Crew members of Net2 TV, a subsidiary of the media company, are said to be using commercial vehicles
- Agyapong is angry with the NPP government because his media company has been denied adverts, a cause of its financial difficulties
Reports have it that Kencity Media is currently struggling financially.
Workers of the company, particularly, the Net2 TV crew members, are reportedly resorting to commercial vehicles in attending events.
Hitherto, the company had branded vehicles which carried their workers and crew members around, but all this has changed.
This was gathered in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Mynewgh.com.
The revelation was made by the deputy minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah.
The deputy minister narrated that he personally encountered some crew members of Net2 TV who begged him to help them with transportation, but he could not.
“The last time I came here something pathetic happened. I met your television crew down there and they told me they were off to the National theatre or is it conference centre to cover an event and wanted a lift.”
“I told them it was a government vehicle I was using so I could not be of help”, Ahenkorah reportedly said in an interview.
He further wondered why Net2 TV would face such issues even though the NPP was in power.
He noted that the TV station aptly owned by an NPP bigwig has supported the party all its life since it’s establishment, therefore, it was unfortunate that it would be plunged into such financial difficulties
“NET 2 is an NPP station. It has supported NPP all its life. The owner of the station donated 100 pick-ups to the NPP in the run up to the 2016 polls. I felt embarrassed and if I had money that day I would have bought a vehicle for the station,” Ahenkorah lamented.
Meanwhile, just recently, Ken Agyapong had descended on the NPP saying he was disappointed in the party.
He complained that despite helping the party in diverse ways to win power, his media company has been denied adverts.
Agyapong also complained that his TV station has been sidelined when other media houses were invited to state functions, describing it as unfortunate.
He noted that the company supported itself with such adverts.
“Wow, what an ungratefulness. When you talk they say your boss is rich…even the ocean it still rains inside.”
No adverts to run the company. Even if you go to programmes…a lot of programmes I have attended I notice NET 2 is not always invited.”
“We have already been living our lives before now. They will go round and still return to us”, Agyapong complained.
