Ghanaian businessman, Kennedy Agyapong, better known as Kenpong, has reportedly intervened in the ongoing trial of political activist, Hajia Fati.
According to him, it is best if Hajia Fati and the plaintiff, Ohemaa Sekyiwaa, a reporter of Accra-based Adom FM, bury their differences.
“We are one people; the back and forth will not help us. Let’s bury any difference that emerged during the Asylum Down incident.
Sekyiwaa, consider Hajia as your mom and let’s live as one people,” said Kenpong during the mediation process.
The plaintiff agreed to the request, adding that there comes a time when it is best to listen to good advice and act on it.
The agreement to settle the case out-of-court comes few days after Nkrabeah Effah Dartey, who represented Hajia Fati during her maiden appearance in court, told the court that the case against his client had been unnecessarily exaggerated with high level of media trial.
He announced to the court that attempts were being made to settle the case amicably out of court since it’s a misdemeanor amenable to settlement by law.
Hajia Fati was accused of assaulting the plaintiff during an event at the head office of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday, May 18, 2018.
Hajia Fati was subsequently invited by the police and later charged with assault and damage of property.
During her maiden appearance in court, she pleaded not guilty and was admitted to bail in the sum of GHC10,000 with one surety.
