Background to case

Wontumi is currently in court with Afia Schwar after the socialite proclaimed publicly that she had been in an amorous relationship with the politician.
Last week, UTV hosted Afia Schwar who restated her allegations on the United Showbiz show hosted by Nana Ama McBrown.

Two co-panellists, A Plus and Mr Logic also made pronouncements on Afia’s allegations despite the matter being before the courts. Fada Dickson is joined in the suit by virtue of being the Executive Producer of the programme.

Following the show, many Ghanaians on social media fired the host, the station, and panellists for allowing Schwar to badmouth Wontumi and others on the show.
Days after the backlash and suit, UTV issued a letter to render an apology without prejudice to Chairman Wontumi.

In a letter signed by Fadd Dickson, UTV apologized for any harm or inconvenience Afia Schwar’s appearance and claims on the show might have caused Wontumi.
