The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, known for not mincing words took the host of Adom TV’s 'Badwam', Omanhene Kwabena Asante to the cleaners when he described the presenter as one with a contaminated mind.
Hon. Agyapong who appeared on the show with Alhaji Bature, Managing Editor of the Al Hajj newspaper on the newspaper review segment found it unacceptable comments from the host which suggested that the current Managing Director of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST), Alfred Obeng Boateng supervised the controversial contaminated fuel.
“The mess was caused by NDC”, said the maverick legislator with a quick interjection from the host, “supervised by Alfred Obeng”.
This was greeted with a sharp rebuttal from Kennedy Agyapong who surmised the host has a deficit in the English Language.
“How did he supervise it? That is bogus. You attended a village school so you don’t understand simple English. Is Alfred Obeng the cause of the contamination? Your mind is contaminated. Your mind is also contaminated. How can you say the man supervised it? You have a contaminated mind. Let’s have the conversation in Twi for clarity. Your knowledge in English is appalling,” he jabbed.
This is not the first time Mr. Agyapong has called out a journalist. About three months ago, he took on the same journalist when he was asked to withdraw a statement he made on the show.
In 2014, Mr. Agyapong and Alhaji Bature traded insults during a discussion on a cocaine scandal involving Nayele Ametefeh on Accra-based Okay FM.
The Al Hajj newspaper had published that the British intelligence services including the MI5 and MI6 had directed their investigative radar on Kennedy Agyapong over his alleged involvement in the case.
