THE ASHANTI Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwame Zu, has confirmed that, even though some people physically attacked him in public, recently, he was not ‘beaten to the pulp’ as some traditional and social media networks tried to portray in their reports.
According to him, some people at the Central Mosque area in Kumasi quickly came into his defence, even before his attackers could touch him.
“I was in my car and some misguided criminal elements approached me and asked if I was Kwame Zu and I responded in the affirmative.
“Upon my response, their action became confrontational but the public stemmed the tide. All the same I saw the need to report to the police for the possible arrest of these young men”.
Kwame Zu, in a short video on social media, said he was surprised to have read media reports that suggested that he was openly beaten in public.
“I am scandalised about the choice of words, the tone and sensationalism in the media reports”, he complained, saying that he was not beaten.
“In fact, the confrontation was bad enough, but the sensational reports is also bad”, he lamented and urged the media to be circumspect in their reports.
