Rev Bempah cautions Kwesi Pratt
Founder and leader of Glorious Word Power
Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu
Bempah has advised Kwesi Pratt Jnr, Managing
Editor of the Insight newspaper, to evaluate his
utterances about men of God.

“It is dangerous for Kwesi Pratt to be hiding
behind politics to demean men of God for reasons
best known to him. He should know that God cannot

Mr. Pratt reportedly said Pastor Mensah Otabil,
founder and General Overseer of ICGC of

“Ghana’s destiny at the moment is in the hands of
the judges and I they will not let the people of
God down.

“I know our eminent judges are capable of
delivering justice and we will continue to ask for
God’s special protection for them to work hard and
