The Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak has not taken kindly to being called “dumb” by theÂ Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong.
Muntaka Mubarak dared his fellow MP to be rude to his face “if he thinks is a man.”
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the Asawase MP said: “if he [Kennedy Agyapong] thinks is a man, he should just meet me on the floor of Parliament and try to be rude towards me, and the whole world will hear us.â€�
“I grew up in the jungle where every day we wrestle. I canâ€™t come to Accra and be afraid of anybody. Not even somebody like Hon. [Kennedy Agyapong]
â€œYou know how we behave in the Zongoâ€¦ you donâ€™t cheat but you donâ€™t allow anybody to cheat you. You donâ€™t start the fight but you donâ€™t allow anybody to bring it to you and walk away.â€�
Ken is very poor
Muntaka Mubarak further derided his fellow MP describing him as a man only defined by his money.
This ultimately meant Kennedy Agyapong was empty, theÂ Muntaka Mubarak added.
“Thatâ€™s a rude person because everything he has is about money. When all you have on this earth is money, then you are very poor. He is a very poor person, but he doesnâ€™t know… Walk to the street and ask the ordinary person whether they see him with any value. All he has his only money. He has nothing.”
Suspend him from the House
Muntaka Mubarak also called for theÂ Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, to be suspended from Parliament for the rest of 2018.
The Asawase MP believe Kennedy Agyapongâ€™s recent conduct was unfit for someone in the legislature.
â€œYou have the right to make your views in the strongest terms that you can, but you donâ€™t have the right to be insulting people all around,â€� he said onÂ Eyewitness News.
These remarks came afterÂ Kennedy Agyapong called Muntaka Mubarak â€œdumbâ€� for referring him to Parliamentâ€™s Privileges Committee over purported insults on Friday.
Before Fridayâ€™s comments, Kennedy Agyapong is reported to have described the House as â€œuselessâ€� for having Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu as its Majority leader on Accra-based Net2 TV, which belongs to the Assin Central MP.
These comments compelledÂ Muntaka Mubarak to file a motion to referÂ Kennedy Agyapong to Parliamentâ€™s PrivilegesÂ Committee.
Parliamentary records show that the committee will consider the referral next Tuesday, June 26.
