The Minority in Parliament have registered their displeasure over what they term continuous ‘lying’ by Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu following several informal meeting held in Parliament.
Speaking to Citi News, Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak said Mensah Bonsu cannot be trusted and hence the Minority will only hold official meetings that will be minuted for the purpose of records.
“I keep saying that when you are in a pit and you dig and you see that you are sinking, you stop digging ..the insults, the misrepresenting of meetings and half-truth, half-lies that he [Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu] keeps talking about is worrying so we [the Minority Caucus] have decided [especially the leadership] that we will we not hold any unofficial meeting with him again.
“Because in all these unofficial meetings, you don’t have people taking minutes. I must admit, I have been the government whip before…the house is run largely by these informal meetings but because of his penchant to lie about outcomes of meetings ..we have decided that ‘no’, we will not hold informal meetings with him. He is a liar. He has consistently been saying it and we keep drawing his attention that you are misrepresenting what happens. He keeps repeating it. What else do we call it [that] it is a lie he’s telling,” he said.
