Ghanaian investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni is in the ‘HOT SOUP’ after trying to criticise the ongoing Africa CEO forum in Geneva, Switzerland.
While the conference was ongoing on Tuesday, March 21, Manasseh took to Facebook to indirectly ‘rubbish’ the conference saying the cash being spent on the event is wrong.
Manasseh wrote: “Why is the Africa CEOs conference being held in Europe? The over 1000 participants will book hotels, eat, shop and move around. So much cash will be invested in Geneva. Why not an African city? Is this rocket science or common sense? Or something I am missing?”
His statement attracted a lot of comments but the one that went viral came from a Facebook user called Nana Kwame.
Nana clapped back saying: “Why did you choose to do your wedding at Aburi gardens and not your local village, where Otabil and others could see the deprived nature of your people. And use your wedding to inspire the up and coming youth to aim high like u. Probably that local plantain sellers goods could be purchased by the city dwellers. Is this rocket science or common sense or something I am missing??”
His comments had over thousand likes and over 800 comments.
But Manasseh didn’t give up and went ahead to respond and got trolled heavily. See what people told him.
