A group has petitioned Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon.Alban SK Bagbin about the conduct of Assin Central MP, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong.
The vociferous MP and leading member of the NPP recently launched a scathing attack on Multimedia Journalist, Erastus Asare Donkor.
The MP has been hauled before the Previleges Committee over the threats on the life of Asare Donkor, who covered the riots at Ejura in the Ashanti region that led to the killing of 2 persons last month.
Blaming the Journalist for covering the event live, Agyapong on Friday, July 9, 2021 is reported to have verbally abused and threatened to attack Asare Donkor and incited the public against the Luv FM reporter.
He said on his TV station-Net 2- that the “shoddy work” of Kumasi-based journalist sparked the recent shootings and killing incidents at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
The MO stated, “if I were President, I would have ensured that Erastus Asare Donkor is beaten mercilessly.”
The incident led to the Multimedia and its lawyers petitioning the Deputy Regional Police Commander, Ashanti Region, and demanded security protection for Erastus Asare Donkor.
Citing events that led to the murder of an investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, Management of The Multimedia Group described the threats of the MP as, “life-threatening.”
It is for this reason that the SDDDF-Africa wants the MP to be punished.
A statement signed by the Lead Advocate of the group has listed the number of times Agyapong has engaged in unparliamentary acts.
Below is the statement;
