Serwaa Amihere

GHOne Tv’s news anchor and presenter, Serwaa Amihere has come under severe backlash after she posted a tweet that seemed to aim at determining if betting among the youth has become a national crisis.

The tweet reads;

“Let’s talk about betting among the youth; is it becoming a national crisis? #GHToday”.


Serwaa’s tweet

Many social media users didn’t agree with her as they found her topic for discussion as rather irrelevant. They seemed to agree that Serwaa Amihere has a case of misplaced priorities as there are more pressing issues for discussion such as the commotion regarding the CSSPS, Takoradi missing girls amongst others.

Rather, she chose to discuss betting as a social crisis rather that tackle the above stated pressing socio-political issues. They referred to the presenter as an incompetent journalist and nothing but a slay queen as according to them, she practices unprofessional journalism.
