Trending topics on the go: How we write news at YEN.com.gh
As YEN.com.gh reported earlier, an Accra Circuit Court on Friday, April 16, sentenced the actress known in real life as Rosemond Brown for publishing obscene material to 90 days in prison.
Commenting on the sentence described by many as “harsh”, the Assin Central lawmaker said it was not harsh enough.
“…She should have been given one year,” he stated on ‘The Seat’ show on his Net2 television.
He said the actress’ conduct was “very cheap”, stressing that “anyone who poses naked should be jailed.”
The lawmaker’s remarks angered Ghanaians. YEN.com.gh has put together the most mind-blowing views Ghanaians shared on the story so far.
See the post below:
Promzy Brainiac Idrack writes, “Yh Mr. Ken I agree with u for that but if our laws are fair and apply to everyone equally I think u Mr. Ken with all due respect, you must also be in prison for a very long time.....”
Jacob Kwadzo said, “If really he said that, then the way she subjected herself to the process and didn't use the power of the office she held, please he should do same in his case and face the law.”
King Tickles noted, “Look at this jail candidate spewing nonsense, the corrupt deals u engage in to enrich yourself kuraa u have not been jailed. The corrupt president always clears u people even when there is clear evidence against u guy. Failed government.”
Kweku-Arku Amissah stated: “You are not in the right position to talk about this issue. You should be in jail by now. Coming on national television to insult judges. That issue was brushed under the carpet cuz your party is in power.”
Rowland Mugagga observed: “U should have been in prison a long time ago if our laws had respect for no person. U should be the last person talking on this issue.”
Nii Odoi Brown added: “Naked we came, nudity doesn't hurt anybody but a suspected murderer, alleged cocaine pusher and state looter hurts the very foundation of this nation.”
Nana Osei Kuti said: “The real criminals are walking freely, but you jail someone sake of nude. Community service no dey or Wetin? Ghana de3 you thief 20ghc dem catch you, jail 10 years. All this jail thing is absurd, not like it’s a fancy place where they keep these ppl, moreover overcrowded. Some crime doesn’t deserve jail time.
Well, what do I know.? ”
Nana Quami Ronny added: “How many years were u jailed for ur contemptuous comments u made against the Supreme Court judges during the hearing of the election petition case in 2012.????....U are a highly respected person in Ghana, it’s better to leave some issues stuffs unattended to..”
