Nana Afena Nketiah the Twafohene of Techiman Traditional Area on 5th March 2020 waged war on Mallams and Fetish Priests advertising on TV and Radio Stations.
Just last week, the information minister, hon Kwadwo Oppong Nkrumah also came out with the white paper from the office of the president to stop the Mallams and the Fetish Priests from advertising on TV and radio fms due to their fake promises to rob their clients.
The National Media Commission (NMC) has banned all activities involving mallams and fetish priests on television effective 1st May 2020.
This directive was issued directly from the office of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, through a letter to the NMC to ban all Mallams and Fetishes to cease advertising their services on TV.
It has now become a common practice on TV for these recalcitrants who dupe patrons with money as bait with the promises of rendering some services to them.
The practice has become rampant to the extent that, some of these mallams and fetish priests have opened their own TV stations to broadcast their services 24/7.
This directive will come as a huge relief to patrons who have suffered in the dealings of these Mallams and Fetish Priests. Most Ghanaians will welcome this with massive cheers because of the many complaints by the masses.
Some Ghanaians have raised concerns on some pastors whose dealings are not different to that of the Mallams and the fetishes.
