Blakk Rasta’s apology may not save him – Dep. Majority Leader

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Reggae musician and radio host,

Blakk Rasta is apparently not out of

the woods yet, after Deputy Majority

Leader, Alfred Agbesi hinted that

Parliament is likely to punish him

despite an apology from him.

Blakk Rasta was dragged before

Parliament's Privileges Committee for

alleging that about 80% of MPs

smoke Marijuana (wee).

"His apologies to the committee

does not end the matter at all.

When the report comes, the report

can say that, yes, they have

accepted the apology yet it is

subject to the final acceptance by

the House [Parliament]. So we are

waiting for the committees report

and I believe the House will take a

serious view of what has happened."

Though Blakk Rasta explained that

the comments form part of his

advocacy project for wee to be

legalised in Ghana, he subsequently


Alfred Agbesi in a Citi News

interview insisted that though Blakk

Rasta has apologised for his "wee"

comment, the apology will not end

the matter.

This, he said, is because Parliament

has the final say on the report by

the Privileges Committee.

"So people should not jubilate and

people should not say that is all

that Parliament can do, No! More is

to come," he warned.

Blakk Rasta told the Committee

when he appeared before them last

Thursday that he made the comment

on the "spur" of the moment and he

was also "on heat."
