Telenovelas are corrupting Ghanaian women – Speaker of Parliament

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, says telenovelas being shown on television are corrupting Ghanaian women to a point that their own husbands cannot recognize them.

He says the telenovelas are having effect on our culture as a people.  

Speaking as a special guest at the launch of a book of former first deputy speaker Ken Dzirasah titled Defining Moments, a Trip from the village to Parliament and Beyond, Mr. Bagbin charged the nation to take to reading to preserve the country’s identity.

“The telenovelas of today on our television sets are figments of imaginations, from the cultures they originated from which have developed into storylines. Very often they have no bearings on our culture.

“These become storylines that captivate us to the extent that we are not prepared to miss one episode…my concern here today is about the content and the lessons we pick from them. It is about the content and its impact on us. These days I have been talking to a lot of women to stop watching those telenovelas because they are corrupting them to the extent that their husbands may no longer know them,” the former Nadowli-Kaleo MP said.
