Member of Parliament for Suame, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu says he is not worried over the conduct of agitated artisans and spare parts dealers at Suame Magazine who pelted him and his entourage with sachet water and other items.
A swift police intervention saved the MP, who is also Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs from being attacked by angry artisans at the Suame Magazine industrial hub over delays by the government in fixing the deplorable Suame Roundabout-Maakro stretch of the main Kumasi-Techiman Road which they say is not only hampering businesses but also threatening lives.
But Mr. Kyei-Mensah Bonsu in a media interview moments before he was whisked into a police vehicle said he is not worried over the conduct of his constituents.
“I am the face of government so if they are really angry that it’s been a while since the scrapping of the surface and dust is killing them, certainly when they see any government official, they will vent their spleen on the person so I am not worried.”
What appeared a reactionary visit by the Member of Parliament for Suame to listen to concerns of his constituents over deplorable roads turned hostile on Monday.
