‘Freedom And Justice’ Movie Has Not Been Banned – Ghana Tourism Authority

The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has reacted to rumors of banning a Kobi Rana directed movie Freedom And Justice which was set to premiere in various locations across the country this Christmas.

In a press statement posted on its official Facebook handle, the Authority said it was only enforcing the President’s directive when it prohibited the premiere of the movie.

The Authority stated that the President was clear in his 20th Covid-19 addressed when he said the cinemas are to remain closed.

Allowing the movie producers to premiere ‘Freedom and Justice’ will be going against the directives and also help in the spread of Covid-19, the statement sighted by Gist Africa read.

The Ghana Tourism Authority, which is the regulatory agency mandated by law under the Tourism Act, to regulate these tourism facilities (beaches, cinemas, movie houses and nightclubs) is enforcing the directives of the President.”

“Cinema, beach and night club operators have all been part of the ongoing stakeholder engagements with the National Covid-19 Task Force,” it added.

This comes after the decision to prohibit the premiere went viral on social media. Many people associated GTA’s reaction to the content of the movie.

They claimed the Authority stopped the premiere because of the content.

The story which is set somewhere in Africa shows a government conference that is being attacked by a group of young citizens. They hold the ministers and media hostage, asking for accountability live on national television.

However, GTA has denied the allegations that they had issues with the movie and its content.

Freedom and Justice, the new movie from Kafui Danku’s ABC Pictures and Kobi Rana’s Ranaway Productions was expected to premiere on Christmas Day at the Knutsford University Hall, East Legon in Accra.

Cast members including Kafui Danku, Clemento Suarez, Irene Opare, Kofi Adjorlolo, Mawuli Semevor, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, Kobi Rana, Ekow Blankson among others were set to go for the premiere.

GTA, however, served the venues with letters directing the managements to not show the movie.
