Considering the numerous sexual harassment claims against some prominent individuals in recent times, the least one expected from a man of high reputation, was uttering comments about the backside of a lady at a public event, critics have said.

Chief Executive Officer of the Consumer Rights Protection Agency, Kofi Kapito, is being lambasted for sexually harassing GhOne TV’s Serwaa Amihere after he ‘praised’ the butts of the news anchor.

Kofi Kapito who had been called to present an award at the 2019 Radio/Television Personality Awards, held at the Accra International Conference Centre, Saturday, stood behind the microphone, greeted the audience, spotted the journalist who was seated in the crowd, looked into her eyes and said, “Ey, Serwaa Amihere. Look at your butts. Nice!”

Hours after the incident, Serwaa Amihere has expressed utmost disappointment, stressing that she has been sexually harassed.

What shocks her the most, she said, is the fact that she revered Mr. Kapito and never anticipated such a comment from him.

“I had so much respect for Mr. Kofi Kapito. This is a classic case of sexual harassment. I’m appalled by his utterances. This was needless and completely disrespectful!” she tweeted.

Adding their voices to the issue, journalists Nana Aba Anamoah and Francis Abban, described Kofi Kapito’s comment as ‘unacceptable’.

Some tweeps are equally outraged as they have chastised Kofi Kapito.

Meanwhile, some have questioned why Serwaa Amihere failed to put Kofi Kapito to order right after the event. They argued that the newscaster just wants to trend on social media, hence, her decision to criticize on Twitter.
