On the back of the BBC Africa Eye’s documentary “sex for grades”, Nana Aba Anamoah, a media personality, on Friday shared her personal encounter with sexual harassment on JoyNews.

Speaking on the TV programme News Desk, she said to avoid men who send her inappropriate sex videos and messages, she changes her phone number at frequent intervals.

Sharing one such experince Ms Anamoah said, “I run into a man that I respected so much; he had never seen me in person and he said: ‘I didn’t know your chest was so full.

“At that particular moment, all the respect I had for him fizzled out and I dealt with him: ‘don’t you ever, ever, even in your wildest dreams, say this to me again'”.
“And I told him off “, she told Animwaa Anim Addo, host of the show.

Footage of University of Ghana lecturers was broadcast on Monday as part of a documentary by the BBC’s Africa Eye investigative unit, exposing sexual harassment and misconduct by lecturers at prestigious institutions in West Africa.

Two Ghanaian lecturers who were secretly filmed sexually harassing undercover BBC reporters have been suspended pending an investigation.

The suspensions follow similar action against two lecturers in Nigeria, who were also filmed by the BBC.

University of Ghana lecturers Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Kwame Butakor propositioned journalists posing as students for a BBC documentary.

Both Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor denied any wrongdoing.

The University of Ghana said Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor had been called to appear before a committee to give evidence.
