Popular Ghanaian social media commentator, Twene Jonas, has taken a swipe at the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, over a recent donation.
While speaking in one of his Facebook Live sessions, Twene Jonas was heard speaking on reports in the media concerning the Chief Imam's GHC50,000 donation toward the building of a national cathedral.
According to Jonas, the donation was not quite what was needed, and that the money could have been channeled into other ventures.
Twene Jonas said many Zongo communities in Ghana were impoverished, therefore, the GC50k could have been put to use in such places to better the lives of people there.

The "glass nkoaa" crooner said many Zongo communities did not have access to potable water, schools and good roads, therefore, that money could have solved some of these needs.
Twene Jonas was however careful with his words and said peradventure, the move from the Chief Imam might have been a political one.
He added that if there were no political ties to the donation, he would be really disappointed.
However, Reverend Sheriff Zakari, speaking in an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, noted that Twene Jonas' argument was neither here nor there.
According to the Branch pastor of Destiny Embassy, Twene Jonas did not really understand religion because it was not wrong for the Muslim leader to support things of Christianity.
He said religion should not be a barrier or serve as a hindrance for people to show their humanity.
"Religion has always been with us and would be with us long after we die. One does not have to be on one side of the religious divide and only support that side. When that happens, it is humanity that suffers", Reverend Zakari noted.
"Even me, I was born into a Muslim family but I decided to become a Christian. Does that mean I should not support my relatives who are Muslims and come to me for help? No!", the man of God added.
Twene Jonas, as usual, compared happenings in America where he has renamed "heaven on earth" to that of Ghana, and said there was a vast difference in the development gap.
Speaking about Twene Jonas, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the social media commentator took a swipe at Ghanaian blogger and part-time musician, Dennis Anane, famed as Archipalago.
In a video making rounds on social media, Twene Jonas was seen dishing it out to Archipalago over the latter's recent action.
According to Jonas, he did not pay attention to Palago earlier because he was certain that he (Palago) was doing what he was doing just for clout.
Jonas went on to use unprintable words on Archipalago and said there was no way he was going to find him on the streets.
