The rate at which the Executive influences decisions on other arms of government in spite of the preconceived idea of separation of powers is becoming too alarming in Ghana off late.
Not long ago, the loudmouthed legislator of Assin Central goofed with statement on a High court judge. The nature at which the case being handled affirms the preconceived idea that the government is trying to shield him.
Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor who blew the cover om how the Chief Justice to massaging court proceedings on Kennedy Agyapong’s case has dropped a new bombshell on how the Chief Justice is preventing the Ashanti Regional NPP chairman from going to jail.
Kevin Taylor, yesterday on his ‘with all due respect’ show did any editorial on how the Chief Justice is shielding Chairman Wontumi after he was cited for contempt for defying court orders to allow the parliamentary primaries to go on in the Subin Constituency.
We can recall that prior to the NPP’s parliamentary primaries, an injunction was placed on Subin constituency after the incumbent MP filed a motion in court.
Chairman Wontumi openly flouted the court orders which led to him being cited for contempt.
Kevin Taylor alleged on his show that, the Chief Justice realising the magnitude of Wontumi’s case has come to his aid by reshuffling some staff of Kumasi High court in order to protect the vociferous chairman from going to jail.
