OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Actor John Dumelo has come to the defense of Citi FM/TV host, Caleb Kudah, following criticisms from a section of the public.
On Tuesday, May 11, 2021, the journalist was arrested by National Security operatives for filming some abandoned cars procured by MASLOC that had been parked at the Ministry of National Security for several years.
Dumelo is of the opinion that Kudah should be commended for being brave and fearless to take photos in a place known to be a security zone.
"What if @CalebKudah had succeeded in recording and taking the pictures? The same people criticizing him for filming in a security zone will be the same people praising him for being a fearless journalist. How else do we get info if people like him aren’t daring and fearless?" stated the actor.
Espio agreed with Dumelo's assertion adding that: "Plus, anyone from Edward Snowden to Julian Assange can tell you that nothing on a phone/internet ever truly gets deleted. Almost anything digital can be retrieved somehow. Well, that's what I hear from some of these cyber folks anyway. So the video is still out there "somewhere"
