The kind of things Ken Agyapong says and his apologies don’t match - Muntaka cries over Agyapong's acquittal

“I am worried and disappointed because look at the kind of things he keeps doing and this is the kind of apology he renders and Parliaments accepts it…”

The above are the words of Muntaka Mohammed Mubarak, Member of Parliament for Asawasi who expressing disappointment about the ‘go and sin no more’ acquittal of his ‘archenemy’ Kennedy Agyapong.

The Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye reprimanded Kennedy Agyapong after his apology for referring to the house as “Cheap” as MyNewsGh.com reported.

Kennedy Agyapong admitted that he erred back in June 2018 for the utterances concerning the Majority leader and said he has apologized.

Mr. Agyapong subsequently apologized when he was given the opportunity to speak but not without some drama. He rejected some aspects of the committee’s report while explaining the circumstances under which he used words deemed as slighting Parliament.

Attempts by deputy Minority leader James Klutse Avedzi to extract another apology proved futile as Majority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu argued the first one which the NDC MPs deemed conditional was enough.

“I have apologised to the Majority leader. I have; I am a human being… he is my best friend,” the MP told the press at the time.

Muntaka Mubarak was the MP who dragged the Assin Central MP before the Privileges Committee and is not happy about the outcome.

According to the Asawase MP, who dragged his colleague to the Privileges Committee, the decision does not augur well for the legislature.

“We are not helping our democracy in any way with the way we are running our House,” Muntaka Mubarak told our sister media outlet Citi News.

Kennedy Agyapong has promised to have a showdown with Muntaka once his woes are over. MyNewsGh.com is keenly following the duo for any new development.
