Television News Achor Serwaa Amihere is demanding a public apology from CEO of Consumer Rights Protection Agency, Mr. Kofi Capito for objectifying her on stage during the just Radio and Television Personality Awards 2019.
According to creadible information gathered by Peacefmonline.com, Kofi has quickly gone to apologise to Serwaa, after she tweeted her displeasure about the former’s comments but said she would only accept his apology on condition he does it publicly.
Kofi Kapito, who was on stage to present an award at the DOPHIL RTP Awards on Saturday October 12, 2019, made a comment about how nice her backside was. “Serwaa Amihere, look at your butt, nice!” he said.
This didn’t go down well with the newscaster and she has described the comments by Kofi Kapito as “disrespectful” and a classic case of “sexual harassment”.
“I had so much respect for Mr. Kofi Kapito. This is a classic case of sexual harassment. I’m appalled by his utterances. This was needless and completely disrespectful!” she tweeted.
Serwaa who won the “Best Female Television Newscaster of the Year” on the night has revealed to Peacefmonline.com that Kofi Capito came to her office on Monday morning October 14, after her tweet to apologise to her personally, and while she appreciates his efforts for driving all the way to her office to show remorse, she would accept his apology only if it is done in public because he made his “disgraceful” comment in public.
She however added that Kofi Capito walked off and has blatantly refused to render a public apology.
Kofi Capito has also confirmed to Peacefmonline.com that he indeed went to Serwaa’s office inside GH One Television on Monday to genuinely apologise to her and make amends but she insisted on a public apology.
“….I went ahead to complain to a management member of GH One Television who is Serwaa’s boss about her cold reception and the management member told me to forget about Serwaa if she is not satisfied with the personal apology….So that was why i left Serwaa’s office on Monday,” the Consumer Rights Protection CEO stated.
