Rev Owusu Bempah Hit With Fresh Charges In Court

The Founder and Leader of Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, has been granted bail of ¢200,000 with two sureties.

That was after the court upheld an appeal by his lawyer, Gary Nimako Marfo, against a decision of an Accra Circuit Court not to grant him bail.

Rev Owusu-Bempah was granted bail in the sum of GH¢200,000.00 with two sureties.

However, few hours after his first hearing on Monday, September 13, Rev Bempah was hospitalised at the Police Hospital in Accra.

He was subsequently discharged and returned to cells for police to resume their investigations.

The controversial cleric has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to the breach of peace and threat of death.

On Sunday, September 12, Rev. Owusu Bempah and three others were arrested by the police for issuing threats, brandishing weapons and attacking Police officers.

When he made his appearance in court on Monday, the Leader of Glorious Word Power Ministries International and the other suspects pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

Legal counsel for the suspects, Gary Nimako Marfo, therefore, urged the court to grant his clients bail.

But the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey, opposed the petition noting that the defendants need to be remanded to facilitate ongoing investigations.

After hearing both parties, Judge Afia Owusuaa Appiah, presiding over the case, noted that the suspects could not be granted bail to enable the police to complete their investigations.

Covid-19: GHS To Start Immunisation Exercise For Unvaccinated Citizens On Friday

The delivery on Tuesday evening,  the biggest so far, adds to previous ones of 177,600 and 244,800 doses received in August and September respectively.

The vaccine deliveries are part of the historic COVID-19 vaccine advance procurement agreement signed on 28 March 2021 by AVAT for the purchase of 220 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson single-shot COVID-19 vaccine, with the potential to order an additional 180 million doses.

In total, the 400m vaccines acquired by AVAT are sufficient to immunise a third of the African population. Ama Amoah, Senior Specialist Digital & Internal Communications, Communications and Events Afreximbank, handed over the consignment to Dr Elysee Karikari Agyeman a Member of Health Commodity Group for COVID-19 at the Ministry of Health.

She emphasized that the vaccines were acquired by the Ghana government and not a donation.

The Member States who have ordered vaccines through AVAT will continue to receive shipments for the next following months.

AVAT was established by the African COVID-19 Vaccine Acquisition Task Team, set up in November 2020 under the African Union chairmanship of President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa.

It is part of the African Union’s COVID-19 Vaccine Development and Access Strategy, and its goal of vaccinating at least 60 percent of the African population with safe and efficacious vaccines against COVID-19.

The agreement with Johnson & Johnson was made possible through a US$2 billion facility provided by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), who are also the Financial and Transaction Advisers, Guarantors, Instalment Payment Advisers and Payment Agents, and the support of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) who coordinated the alignment of the AU Ministers of Finance on the financing arrangements.

When they heard that the event was taking place without them, they besieged the forecourt of the Assin South District Assembly with bottles of schnapps, eggs, and slaughtered a ram and rained curses on the officials.
