Wisa fined GH¢8,400 for showing penis

The Accra Circuit Court has slapped a GH¢8,400 fine on hiplife artiste, Eugene Ashie, aka Wisa Greid for showing his penis on stage during a live performance in December, 2015.

In default Wisa will serve 24 months in prison.

The court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin- Doku, found Wisa guilty of gross indecent exposure.

The musician showed his penis during a live performance at Citi FM’s Decemba2Remember concert on December 24, 2015.

I displayed fake penis on stage – Wisa

Wisa had argued that what he showed on stage was an artificial penis, but the court held that the evidence on record showed that it was his real penis.

“I am convinced that the penis he showed was his God-given penis and not a fake penis,” the judge said.

After the judgement, Wisa’s lawyer, Mr Jerry Avenogbor, begged the court to give his client one week to cough up the money.

According to him, it won’t be easy for his client to get the money today.

KMA moves to regulate operations of waste collection tricycles

To regulate the use of tricycles in waste collection, the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has launched branded tricycles for the collection and disposal of waste in the metropolis.
The measure is also to check indiscriminate littering and dumping of solid waste by operators of waste collection tricycles, which has gained a lot of popularity in Kumasi in recent times.

In addition, the move is to ensure that tricycles used to cart solid waste are not used to transport food items.

Orange colour

The KMA has branded the solid waste tricycles in orange to help the public identify and use them accordingly.

The assembly has also issued identification numbers and tags to all the waste collection tricycles in a bid to regulate and monitor their activities, while the riders are to wear prescribed protective gear in the discharge of their duties.

Court of Appeal annuls Judgement Debt findings against Woyome

The Court of Appeal has annulled certain adverse findings made by the Judgement Debt Commission against the businessman Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome with regard to the GHc51.2 million judgement debt paid to him by the state.

In a ruling on Thursday, the three-member panel of the court held that the findings made by the commission were a breach of natural justice because Mr Woyome was not heard by the commission before those adverse findings were made.

“It is important to emphasise that what underpins our jurisprudence as common law jurisdiction — that no man be condemned before he is heard — be upheld in all times,’’ it held.

Apart from setting aside the findings, the court further ordered the findings to be expunged from the commission’s report and the White Paper on the report.

The panel was presided over by Mr Justice Victor Ofoe, with Mr Justice Senyo Dzamefe and Mrs Justice M.M. Agyemang as the other members.

Obiri Boahen is a ‘loose-talker’ and ‘politically finished’ – Kweku Baako

The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has reiterated the need for the deputy general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen to resign since he was a “loose-talker” and “politically finished.”

To him, even though, Obiri Boahen deserve praises for the political “courage” with which, he came out to admit it was his voice on the leaked tape in which he alleged the presidency supported the NPP’s 2017 Cape Coast conference with Ghc50billion, everything else apart from that courage was a “disaster.”

Referring to his earlier call for his resignation on Joy FM’s news analysis programme, Newsfile on Saturday, Mr Baako said, “I’m unable to retract or revise what I said earlier to that effect, perhaps it will be in his own interest if he resigned even before the party institutes any investigations or discipline proceedings.”
