Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and majority leader Hon. Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has condemned the scuffle and insults that were exchanged between two members of Parliament on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
He says they will probe the scuffle and ensure that peace is restored between the two Members of Parliament.
Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, the Suame MP explained that he had prevented an earlier fight between the two; Hon. Kennedy Agyapong and Hon. Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka at the Speaker’s office and so he could not fathom why they had continue with the fight in the chamber.
There was drama in Parliament on Wednesday when some Parliamentarians had to physically restrain two of their colleagues from the opposite sides of the political divide; the NPP Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong and NDC Member of Parliament for Asawase, Muntaka Mubarak, from exchanging blows.
But for the timely intervention of some MPs in the August House, it was likely things would have taken a worse turn, as the two MPs were only limited to trading insults on the Floor of the House ahead of sitting.
The incident played out when the NPP MP aggressively charged on the NDC MP, because of the latter's decision to move a motion on the Floor for the second time referring him (Kennedy Agyapong) to parliament’s privileges committee.
However, the MP for Asawase constituency and Minority Whip, Hon Mubarak Muntaka has expressed regret over the hot verbal exchanges that ensued between himself and the MP for Assin Central, Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyepong.
