I was googling his name and the second article I found was about him slapping some customer but it seems he had a good reason to do so.
When contacted, Harry Zakour denied slapping Owusu, claiming, “He came and started misbehaving and insulted me…and he’s been doing it not only today; he’s been doing it for a long time. Even the police are looking for him; he has sent me some nasty messages.”
Asked what he did for his accuser to insult him as he claimed, the former Hearts of Oak Chairman could not be specific except to say, “He insulted me, bastard, he insulted the President, he insulted the NDC, he said he would deport me and I said ‘why are you doing that in my own restaurant?’”
Harry added, “This guy is not normal oo; he has caused a lot of problems to people. This man has been jailed before; he is a jail bird, cocaine dealer.”
We are all glad that Sleiman is better now but I believe this report was needed to clarify what really happened and Sukleen should issue a clear statement to explain who really assaulted Sleiman and whether he was arrested or not.
PS: Last two seconds of the report should have been omitted.
Saint Joseph University issued a statement earlier today and stated student elections will be suspended for the current academic year. The decision came after NDU suspended its elections following the quarrel that took place between Lebanese Forces and Free Patriotic Movement students on Wednesday.
I think all universities should do the same and take some time to re-asses the whole election process and reformulate it in a way that keeps politics away and doesn’t allow politically affiliated candidates from running as independents and deceiving students. Student elections should be 100% academic. Until they figure out a way to do so, elections shouldn’t take place.
For those of you still doubting if it’s really Joumblatt tweeting, His Excellency Tom Fletcher, among others, “confirmed” in a tweet the authenticity of Joumblatt’s Twitter account. If you think about it, his tweets do sound like him.
