Ghanaian TV newscaster, Serwaa Amihere has lambasted Kofi Kapito, the CEO of the Consumer Rights Protection Agency for his comment about her butt.
According to Serwaa, Kofi Kapito’s comment about her butt at the 2019 RTP is a perfect example of “sexual harassment”.
Mr Kapito while on stage to present the award for TV Female Newscaster of the year paused to remark about Serwaa Amihere’s butt.
He said, “Serwaa Amihere… look at your butt, nice,” before he requested the organisers to play the nominees while Serwaa looked on speechless.
In the aftermath of the awards, Ms Amihere took to Twitter to describe the comments as a “classic case of sexual harassment”.
