‘Rude’ Ken Agyapong ‘poorest’ Ghanaian ‘because all he has is money’ – Muntaka
Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong is the poorest man in Ghana because all he has is money and nothing else, Asawase MP Muntaka Mubarak has said.
Responding to Mr Agyapong’s description of him as a “dumb MP”, Mr Muntaka waxed philosophical, saying the maverick politician, who always boasts about his wealth, is “rude” and “poor” because he has “no value” to his life.
Mr Agyapong attacked Mr Muntaka for reporting him to parliament for allegedly denigrating the Majority Leader and by extension, the entire House.
The matter has been referred to the Privileges Committee of parliament for hearing.
Angered by Mr Muntaka’s move, Mr Agyapong told journalists on Friday that the Minority Chief Whip was a dumb legislator who took his comments out of context. He also threatened to expose Mr Muntaka as far as certain comments he allegedly made about Communication Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, is concerned.
Responding to Mr Agyapong’s invectives and threats, Mr Muntaka told Umara Sanda Amadu of Accra-based Citi FM that: “I don’t think anybody is afraid of him because nobody eats from his home, and for him to say: ‘If I dare him…’, I’m daring him now, he should say anything because he’s never been a friend …”
He continued: “That’s a rude person because everything he has is about money, and you know, when all the things that you have on this earth is about money then you are very poor, he’s a very poor person but he doesn’t know, he’s throwing his weight all around that he’s rich, rich in what, money? Ask any wise person: If all you have is money, then you are very poor. So, nobody eats from his home, nobody is afraid of him, I think that what he has done is a contempt to parliament”.
