Kennedy Ohene Agyapong admitted using the word ‘fo’ in Twi (which literally means Cheap) and vehemently denied saying Parliament was useless (‘fon’ in Twi), accusing Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak of fabricating stories about him and relying on discredited and social media comments and doctored videos.

He later rendered an unqualified apology to the committee and Parliament for his words and stated he was furious at his colleague MP.

“I am not a tin god, no! but I was furious at Muntaka because he also did not cross-check his facts and put everything together…he attacked me on radio saying all sorts of things. Today that the evidence has come out what are we all sitting here going to say?”

“The Committee noted the apology rendered by the Member and therefore did not consider expulsion as a sanction to be imposed. The Committee was however in favour of either a reprimand or a suspension. After extensive deliberations, the Committee put the two options to a vote. Out of a total membership of thirty-one (31), twenty (20) Members were present at the time of the voting. Ten (10) Members voted in favour of reprimand as a sanction and ten (10) Members voted in favour of suspension as a sanction. In view of the split ballot, the Committee recommends to the House to determine which of the two sanctions to be imposed on the Hon. Ken Ohene Agyapong”.
