Otabil should be humble and accept criticism - Kumchacha fires back

According to Kumchacha, Otabil should humble himself and learn how to accept criticism from people and take it good faith


According to him, Otabil should accept criticism and take it good faith.

Following the collapse of Capital bank by the Bank of Ghana, Kumchacha chastised Otabil for not been able to resuscitate the bank with less than two million customers when it was on the verge of collapsing but he [Otabil] always criticise the erstwhile administration of former President John Mahama.

His comments come at the back of Dr. Mensa Otabil who said it is unfortunate that people who do not have the right to mention him in their discussions now have the freedom to insult him following the collapse of Capital Bank, of which he served as Board Chairman.

In a sermon on Sunday, Dr. Otabil recounted events during the past week saying: "You know when people who have no right to insult you, insult you; that is reality.

"You look at the person insulting you and the person, sometimes, himself looks like an insult. But out of the abundance of his insult, he is insulting you, so that is reality. Reality is when it is hitting, when all kinds of stuff is hitting, I don’t want to go too much into that," he said.

But in a swift reaction to Otabil's sermon, Kumchacha said it has come to him as a shock for Dr Mensa Otabil to talk in that manner.

"It is shocking that Pastor Mensah Otabil who has attended school to the highest level will be talking like this. He should rather allow those of us who never stepped in classroom to talk like this.

"Let me tell Otabil that he should learn how to accept criticism from people. He should be humble. Even Bill Gates who is the richest man is humble in his dealings with people. People insult Bill Gates and describe him with all manner of words, yet he continues to show humility," he said on Accra FM.

Kumchacha added that "Anybody who hates correction is like an animal as the Bible says at Proverbs and so please I want to tell him to accept advice. He is our father. We can’t criticize him so much but I want him to read the Book of Proverbs."
