Agyapong nearly trades blows with Muntaka for dragging him to Privileges C’ttee

But for the timely intervention of some Members of Parliament, there may have been an open fight on the Floor of the House today, Wednesday, between Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, and Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong over a matter referred to the Privileges Committee.

The open confrontation follows the latest case brought before the Privileges Committee of by the Asawase MP against Kennedy Agyapong, over comments he made months before the killing of Tiger Eye P.I investigator, Ahmed Suale.

The visibly exasperated lawmakers freely insulted each other as they were prevented by other members from getting close to each other.

A visibly angry Kennedy on Wednesday, before the start of the session, confronted Muntaka and asked why he dragged him to the Privileges Committee over Suale’s murder case.

Kennedy allegedly went further to  use some unprintable words on Muntaka. In a video captured by otecNews, Kennedy Agyapong is heard saying he would deal with his colleague, which got the response, “I’m ready for you.”

After the exchange, Mr. Agyapong asked why Muntaka was fired when he got a ministerial position, after which some parliamentarians pulled him out of the chamber.

Agyapong noted to be hot-temper犀利士
ed had a similar confrontation with Ningo-Prampram MP, Sam George in September 2018, during the heat of the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) project controversy.

The Speaker of Parliament on Tuesday referred a case of contempt of Parliament brought against Ken Agyapong by Muntaka Mubarak to the Privileges Committee of the House.

Muntaka Mubarak, called on the Speaker to refer the member to the Privileges Committee for comments he allegedly made regarding the slain Tiger Eye investigator, Ahmed Suale, months before his death.

This was after the Minority at a news conference asked the police to arrest the Assin Central MP as a key suspect in the matter.

Ahmed was allegedly killed in broad daylight by two men on a motorbike, while he was leaving home late on January 16, 2019, at Madina, a suburb of Accra.

Kennedy Agyapong has come under fire for allegedly inciting violence against Suale during the heat of the Number 12 exposé which exposed deep corruption in Ghana football.
