Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has incurred the wrath of journalists in the country after threatening to have Erastus Asare Donkor of Luv FM beaten to a pulp.
This is not the first time the controversial parliamentarian has threatened a journalist in the full glare of the public.
It can be recalled that this same MP put Ahmed Hussein Suale of blessed memory in harm’s way by putting his photo and location out there, encouraging his minions to beat him wherever they sighted him.
Not so coincidentally, Ahmed Suale was gunned down in his neighborhood a few weeks later. Somehow Mr. Agyapong has escaped any punishment for the death of Ahmed Suale and is still going around threatening journalists for doing their work.
In light of this, his recent threats against Erastus Donkor are being accorded the seriousness it deserves.
The Assin Central MP was recorded to have said on NET2 about Erastus that “He is so annoying. For the foolish submissions he made before the parliamentary committee, we have to beat the hell out of him. If I were the president, I would have ordered this boy to be whipped.”
Well, it appears Mr. Kennedy Agyapong is emboldened to make statements like this because according to him, the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is in “full support” of his gangster behaviour.
In the leaked video below, Kennedy Agyapong is heard trash-talking Kwaku Baako and Anas Aremeyaw Anas, while admitting that the president approves of his misbehaviour.
