The Dagbon Forum has accused TV3 journalist, Komla Klutse of displaying gross disrespect towards the newly enskined Overlord of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Abubakari Mahama II.
Klutse was among pressmen who covered the official coronation on Friday, January 19, 2019 at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi. He subsequently had an opportunity to exclusively interview the new Yaa Naa.
However, The Dagbon Forum, in a statement signed by its president, Dr Abdulai Sulemana Mobson and copied tamaleonline.net condemned Klutse for the kind of questions he posed to the Yaa Naa after the historic event on Saturday, 26 January 26, 2019. They are therefore demanding an apology from the reporter.
According to the statement, “Komla repeatedly asked the King if he had taste for finesse as shown in his reaction upon seeing the Jaguar car, donated by the Government, for the first time. He went further to hold the King’s hand, with emphasis on the Rolex watch he was wearing, again repeating the issue of his love for finesse.”
It said…. “Komla Klutse’s action was unprofessional, immature and showed total disrespect towards the Ya Naa, in terms of his status, age and the circumstances.”
However, the Forum is not only seeking an apology from Komla Klutse but the withdrawal of the “offensive footage” from all media outlets.
