Feature Article of Monday, 8 January 2018Columnist: Abraham LampteyWhy we must pay the TV licenseGCB has threatened to proescute individuals who fail to pay their TV licenseFellow Ghanaians, no offence to the opposers of the proposed payment of TV license fees but we have to pay it for the good of our country. As I recall from 2016, the payment of the TV license was argued as premised on the possession of a TV set regardless of the channel(s) one watches. Since then, the debate has revolved around whether one has to pay for owning a TV or for accessing media content. Granted GBC’s content is irrelevant to most of us who are spoilt for choice when it comes to TV channels, how about those whose sole access to the media is through the public provider? In spite of the many reasons we find to justify GBC’s undeservingness of the fees, they form the very rationale for which we need to pay up to revitalize a national asset.

Feature Article of Monday, 8 January 2018Columnist: K. Badu,Do Mahama and Mahama have a date with the Special Prosecutor? Former President Mahama stated: “thankfully, they are now in power and I will want them to prosecute me and the first lady if it is true the DKM company belonged to us” (yen.com.gh). It would appear that the Mahamas’ are voluntarily putting themselves forward for interrogation by the Special Prosecutor. In any case, I am pretty sure Mrs Mahama is not immune from possible prosecution, unlike Mr Mahama, who per Ghana’s 1992 Constitution is covered by the irrational indemnity clause. Last but not least, I would have lodged complaint with the Special Prosecutor to look into the Brazilian aircraft deal if not the ridiculous indemnity clause.
