During the 2016 political season in Ghana, Kwame Afrifa-Mensah was known to have done a lot of work for the NPP to help them win the elections and so he was tagged as being sympathizer of that political party.
But speaking about the issue, the host of ‘Epa Hoa, Daben?’ show said “I don’t belong to NPP neither do I belong to the NDC but whoever does the bidding of Ghana and puts Ghana at heart is who I go in for.”
He disclosed that he campaigned for the NPP in 2016 because “I believed the people were crying for change and I am for the people so what they were saying is what I said.”
He added that he was not going to do the bidding of any political party on the show but rather the bidding of the people of Ghana.
“Since the NPP came to power, if I have to bash them publicly I do so and people can crosscheck on my Facebook wall. I will not be bias towards any political party. I know my people cry and I listen to my people. When my people say this is not good, it is not good. Definitely in this line of work, I will step on toes.”
If I have to step on the toes of the people I brought into power and get them out of power, I will do it. I am not going to do anybody’s bidding,” Mr Afrifa-Mensah said, adding, “I promise to be very objective and unbiased in my new task given me. What ever I do GHANA 1st.”
