J.B’s Wife Responds Agyapong on Alleged Affair with Anas
Wife of late J.B. Danquah, Ivy Heward-Mills has written a veiled response to lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong’s insinuation that investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas may have been in an amorous relationship with her even while her husband was alive.
The Assin Central MP threw in the insinuation while making a litany of allegations against Anas in connection with his latest investigative piece Number 12 which is billed for premiering on 6 June 2018.
Already, Anas’ mentor, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako, had said on Accra-based Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme on Thursday, 31 May that the allegation was not worth being dignified with a response, adding that Mr Agyapong was clinging to straw because he was losing the argument.
According to Mr Baako, his protégé and Heward-Mills were mates back at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and, so, wondered what Mr Agyapong intends achieving with his comments.
Below is Ivy Heward-Mills’ subtle response on Facebook:
Good morning, fellow parents;
I greet you from a place of joy, peace, love and empathy.
The way we raise our sons and daughters is vital. If we teach our children values like “respect for self and others,” if we build their self-esteem and mold their characters into children who will become men and women of dignity and integrity, we would have raised a polite society in which some of the traits we observe in people of authority today would be absent.
Unfortunately, we live in a society where brutal uncontrollable losers with low self-esteem who yearn for attention, kick and rub their feet in the air like sixteen-year-old tantrum-throwers who inevitably become certified world class bullies as adults. This sort of adults potentially end up in our homes as spouses, in our workplaces as “leaders” or followers, in public office (bearing and demanding all sorts of titles and accolades) in public places we visit, etc. We find that we are surrounded by bullies; cowards with little or no self-esteem who resort to abuse and the denigration of others to fuel their egos as they engage in their daily battles to desperately seek relevance in an overt never-ending “fight for power to shield their inadequacies by any means necessary” sort of facade; sometimes to deflect attention from facts they find abrasive. Woe betides us if these bullies have some money or influence!
When you encounter such bullies, especially when their pathetic selves decide to prey on you or use you as a weapon to fight lost causes, do not validate their existence or dignify them with any direct exchanges. We live in a country with laws. The constitution never sleeps.
Let us mind how we raise our children after all, as William Wordsworth wrote in his 1807 poem “The Rainbow,” the “child is the father of the man.”
Wishing us all a beautiful fruitful day. And oh… God bless our homeland Ghana. ??
