The Washington Post editor and a close buddy to the assassinated opinion writer Jamal Khashoggi, Karen Attiah has questioned why Ghanaian media fraternity allows politicians to make threats and false rumors on their platforms.
According to the popular female journalist, it is unlawful for the media houses in the country to enable politicians to use their floors in issuing threats and false stories about people.
Karen who is well-known for her massive campaign in seeking justice for her murdered friend, Khashoggi made this statement via her tweeter handle.
Giving her opinion on the Tiger Eye PI member Ahmed Hussein-Suale’s death and it associate issues, Karen stated that the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong used a media platform to call for Ahmed to be beaten and that led to the shocking death of the reporter.
The Washington Post editor whose father happens to be a Ghanaian further said it was insane for Kennedy Agyapong to blame Anas for the death of Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Karen Attiah tweeted:
“Serious question for Ghanian media: Why do these platforms allow for politicians to make threats and unsubstantiated rumors?
Agyapong called publicly for Ahmed to be beaten. Now Ahmed has been killed. Agyapong is now blaming @anasglobal . Insane!”
