Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Court found him guilty of cleansing but he insists he is innocent
A Teshie based pastor has repeated his claims of innocence despite being found guilty of ‘cleansing’ the private parts of his lady followers for purification.

Kojo Addae was slapped by a magistrate court in La, a suburb of Accra, with a fine of GH¢ 600.00 or be jailed for eight months if he fails to pay.

In an interview with Joy News the embattled pastor said he never washed the private parts of the lady.

According to him, the lady even testified in court that she performed the cleansing herself.

He conceded however, that he prepared the ‘concoction’ for the purification.

He accused his victim and members of her family of distortions and exaggerations in order to destroy his reputation.

He said he deserved any punishment, but certainly not for this. He claimed to have been subjected to severe beating by members of the family.

Meanwhile Chairman of the Ghana Christian Council Mr. Fred Deegbe has condemned the action of Mr. Addae.

He said many people do all kinds of things in the name of God and warned; even if they escape jail term the Almighty God will hold them accountable for their actions.

Police Prosecutor Bernard Berko, confirmed to Joy News the accused has settled his fine.
