Graphic on Wednesday November 19,dismissed Daniel Kenu accusing him of ?gross misconduct and disloyalty under section 22(a) of the collective bargainig agreement? between him and the company.

However, the General Secretary for the Ghana Journalist Association,David Agbenu has said the dismissal of Daniel Kenu is unfair and a show of injustice to the journalist who got traumatized after being subjected to brutalities by thugs.

According to him, although the GJA was against his(Daniel Kenu?s) decision to withdraw the assault case against Baffour Gyan from court, the association least expected a dismissal of the journalist from the Graphic Communicatins Group. He mentioned that the treatment meted out to the Journalist by the? Graphic Communications Group is unfair and insensitive.

?We least expected him to be sacked although we were all outraged by his decision to withdraw the case from court. Graphic has been unfair to the journalist.?

?Where is the justice we are fighting for journalist in Ghana if a media house decides to dismiss a journalist who was beaten for doing his work,? Mr. David Agbenu questioned.

He added that this will not augur well for journalism in Ghana .

However, Mr. David Agbenu did not state the position of the GJA on whether they will call for the reinstatement of the dismissed journalist.

Daniel Kenu was assaulted by Baffour Gyan and his thugs months but withdrew the case from the court based on personal and health grounds although he had the full backing of Graphic.
