He does not use these exact words, at least not in the version of the afore-referenced news report. At any rate, the Legon political scientist would be scandalously unwise to suppose that he can recklessly lob abusive tirades at officials in public service or government and not be dished back some of his own brew or dietary fare of animadversion. At any rate, it is rather absurd for the accused sexual predator remark as follows: “Sexual harassment is a criminal matter. the yoke of colonialism.” We shall be revisiting this very critical and interesting subject as the occasion demands and is deemed necessary and appropriate in due course. *Visit my blog at: kwameokoampaahoofe.wordpress.com GhanaffairsBy Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkOctober 8, 2019E-mail: [email protected]
