Controversial Christian leader Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah has picked up yet another fight, threatening to cut off the head of popular traditional priest, Nana Kwaku Bonsam.
Owusu Bempah, head of Glorious Word Ministry International, has also dared Bonsam to meet him at Okay FM for a spiritual contest.
“Kwaku Bonsam, I want to tell you that you are not sensible. I am not like those foolish pastors who come to you. You face is like an animal…You are mad. Let us forget about the military, let us forget the police and the courts; I would kill you: a madman like you. How dare you mention my name? If you had someone like me in your family wouldn’t you have been glad?” an angry Owusu Bempah roared on Okay FM.
Not even the host of the programme, Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, could calm down Owusu Bempah as he went ahead to throw more insults and threats on live public radio.
“I will cut your head…if you are a man meet me at Okay FM right now. If you are a man, come and meet me,” the Christian pastor added.
Bonsam, in response, said he was surprised at the insults and choice of words of the pastor and head of a church.
“In the past, I would have gotten angry and also insulted him in reply just to prove that I am a big boy and I do not fear him and I also know how to insult. But I am growing and becoming wiser and more tolerant. These days I always pray to God to help me so that I do not become arrogant because [it] can lead to my fall.
“I am surprised a Christian pastor would behave this way on radio. Tikese, the host of the show, is my witness. I did not insult Owusu Bempah. I did not show him any disrespect and when he was insulting me I did not reply. I will write an open letter to Owusu Bempah soon to share a few lessons with him about life, humility and how Christian leaders can shape or destroy society by the way they behave. I have started the letter and would soon post it on my wall and give copies to the media,” Bonsam added.
Rev Owusu Bempah was apparently angry during the radio interview because Kwaku Bonsam had insinuated that some of his prophesies were simply logic and could be predicted by anyone.
Bonsam had said there was nothing supernatural about predicting that a high profile person from the Ashanti Region would die in 2016 or saying that out of some 270 Members of Parliament, one of them would die.
He had added that Owusu Bempah was one of the several ‘prophets’ who made predictions and when they did not come to pass, they would say it was because some people had gone to see them in private for prayers.
