Actor John Dumelo has sent a message of caution to politicians and their followers to spot victimizing celebrities just because they endorse certain political parties.
According to him, Ghana practices democracy and therefore celebrities who do not support the party ideology and believes of opponents should not be victimized as it has happened in his case.
John Dumelo made this statement when he appeared on Dining with cooks and braggarts hosted by Yvonne Okoro.
He indicated that because of he believes and support for the National Democratic Congress, he has suffered several cases of abuse; something he thinks should not be the case.
John Dumelo who has been tipped to run for Parliamentary elections in 2020 mentioned that it is high time politicians and their followers realize that there is freedom of association and therefore if a celebrity does not support them, he has a right to his/her choices.
He mentioned that he will on any day defend any other celebrity supporting another political party if he/she is being manhandled by another party member.
It would be recalled that John Dumelo was subjected to national disgrace when the New Patriotic Party(NPP) government took a V8 which was believed to have been “stolen” from the government from him.
