Afia Schwarzenegger, a controversial Ghanaian comedian, is said to have been prohibited from using the term “beefs” or insults on social media.
This comes after a Tema High Court pronounced her sentence.
She was fined GH60,000 (5,000 penalty units) earlier today in a contempt case that is still pending before the court.
In an interview with Abrantepa of Ghanaweb, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw said that if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be sentenced.
“This is the most recent information, and it is more painful. Every Ghanaian should keep an eye on the afia on social media. “Afia is also banned from engaging in social media beefs, insults, and attacks for two years,” Lawyer Ampaw told GhanaWeb in the interview. “The court said that we should arraign her before court for another sentence.” She ought to be brought back if she gets into a fight on social media,” he added.
“A bond of good behavior for another two years and failure to do so, she should be brought to court for punishment” is also said to have been signed by Afia, according to reports.
It should be recalled that Chairman Wontumi had taken Afia Schwarzenegger and other defendants, including United Television (UTV), to court after they had provided commentary on a case that was pending during a July 2022 episode of the entertainment show United Showbiz, which was broadcast on UTV.
Felicity Ama Agyeman, better known by her stage name Nana Ama Mcbrown, Kwame Asare Obeng, better known by his stage name Kwame A-Plus, and Emmanuel Barnes, better known by his stage name Mr. Logic, were each assessed a fine of GH60,000, or 5,000 penalty units, which they have since paid.
A fourth individual, Fadda Dickson Narh, an Executive Producer at United Television (UTV), was granted pardon by the court because the court found that he apologized on UTV before the case was brought before it.
