Kobby Sacked

By Daily Guide

The recent sexually-explicit language on television has landed Kobby Acheampong, a National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication consultant in trouble, with the termination of his appointment as a journalism teacher at the African University College of Communications (AUCC) in Accra.

A letter signed by Kojo Yankah, AUCC President, said the school could no longer tolerate Kobby's attempt at dragging its name into disrepute.

The dismissal letter noted that Mr. Acheampong's utterances on Metro TV last Wednesday, where he traded explicit sexual abuses with his co-panelist, Frances Assiam, former Women's Organiser of NDC, were considered by management of the school as very distasteful.

“This is the second time during which your part-time duties on air have drawn AUCC into disrepute. The first time was when you failed to substantiate an allegation you made about renovations in the residence of the sitting President, very unbecoming of a lecturer in a journalism institution,” the letter stated.

Kobby is said have been queried on a number of occasions over his attitude towards his duties at the school with no remorse.

“This observation is being made on the heels of recent Management's grave concern about your failure to meet your obligations to AUCC which has affected aspects of our operations, and which has been brought to your attention.

Your attitude to work has been questioned and we have had serious doubts about your commitment to the noble vision and mission of AUCC.

“In light of the damage your continued association with AUCC is bringing to the image of our respected and prestigious institution, I have no other option but to terminate your appointment as full time lecturer with immediate effect”. 

He has been instructed to hand over all school properties to Abaslom Mutere, his immediate boss, by the close of work toady.

“You will be paid your November salary in addition to your December salary in lieu of notice, in accordance with AUCC regulations,” the letter added.

Kobby and Frances threw caution to the wind, accusing each other of homosexuality and paedophilia.

The duo engaged in heated vulgar exchanges to an extent that the host of the Good Morning Ghana Show, Yaro Kasambata, was helpless, ending the programme abruptly.

Mr. Acheampong, during the verbal brawl, was reported to have referred to Madam Assiam as a prostitute and someone who enjoys having sex with small boys.

Frances, unable to stomach the insult, also told Kobby that he was a homosexual and had been practicing anal sex with former President Jerry John Rawlings, founder of the NDC.
