‘Any idiot can go to court’ – Afia Schwarzenegger reacts after Wontumi suit


Afia Schwarzenegger, a Ghanaian socialite and actress, has made a controversial remark on her verified Instagram account, stating that “any idiot can go to court.”

This incendiary post comes after business mogul and Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, launched a defamation suit against her.

On Thursday, June 9, 2022, GhanaWeb reported that the politician had sued the comedienne for defamation.

The plaintiff, Chairman Wontumi, is asking for two million Ghana Cedis (GH¢2M) as damages, costs including legal fees and a perpetual order restraining the defendant and allies from further publishing any defamatory materials against him, and any other order that the court shall deem fit.

In the statement of claim, the plaintiff said Afia Schwarzenegger had on June 4, 2022, made social media posts that smeared his reputation.

The plaintiff is asking the court to order the defendant to retract and render an unqualified apology for the defamatory statements.

Although, Afia Schwarzenegger’s “anyone idiot can go to court” Instagram post was not a direct response to Chairman Wontumi, a critical evaluation of the sequence of events makes people believe that the post was a jab at the maverick politician.


A few days ago, Afia Schwarzenegger claimed in a social media post and also in a video clip that she had had sexual intercourse with Chairman Wontumi.

Her claim was vehemently rebutted by lawyer Maurice Ampaw who served as an indication that Wontumi would sue the showbiz personality at the Tema High Court for defamation.

Who once said any idiot can go to court?
