The former serial phone-in contributor, Yaw Nketia popularly known as Dr. Asemfofro has died.
He is reported to have passed at the 37 Military hospital on Easter Sunday dawn after a short ailment.
Dr. Asemfofro’s elder’s son, Ampem Nketia confirmed this to Adom News.
He indicated that, his father was rushed to the hospital on Good Friday but gave up the ghost this dawn.
He was 52-years-old.
Politically, Dr. Asemfofro did not hide his support for the NDC as was active on several campaign platforms to garner votes for the party.
He shot to fame when he challenged former President John Agyekum Kufuor to swear by dreaded Ashanti deity, Antoa Nyama if indeed he has not engaged in any corrupt acts.
The herbal doctor was carried shoulder-high, following the role he played in the demonstrations against the Representation of the People’s Amendment Law (ROPAL) and also stated a one-man demonstration in protest as what he termed the crippling socio-economic conditions under the erstwhile Kufuor administration.
But, Dr. Asemfofro, however, fell out with the NDC saying the party he so much loved and had sacrificed his money, energy and time for, had treated him like a leper, virtually dumping him and leaving him to his fate.
Until his death, he declared his support for the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) and also supported the free SHS policy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The late Dr. Asemfofro left behind 13 children and two wives.
