Politician and businessman, Kennedy Agyapong has mentioned that, Ghana’s Police Service is weak and he as a citizen do not trust the Police Service.
The outspoken and never shy of controversy member of Parliament for the ruling New Patriotic Party exposed an undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale and called for his supporters to beat him up, many Ghanaians believed he had gone too far.
In an interview with Kennedy Agyapong on BBC Africa, he is doing his own personal investigations to find the killers of late undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
“I don’t trust the Police. No, I don’t trust them. I am even doing better investigations than the Police.I just don’t trust the police. I have a lot of evidence but I don’t share with anybody. I will serialise them.” He said.
He said although he was saddened about the death and sympathizes with Ahmed’s family, he has no regret for showing Ahmed’s image publicly just as he and his team have done to others in their work.
Mr. Agyepong has already distanced himself from the death of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, saying, he cannot fathom why he would engineer the killing of a person who is irrelevant in his life.
Kennedy Agyapong dragged before Privileges Committee
Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central has been hauled before the Privileges Committee of Parliament for allegedly inciting the public against the murdered journalists, Mr Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
This is the second time Mr Agyapong has been hauled to the committee in recent times over comments deemed contemptuous to the reputation of Parliament.
The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye, referred Mr Agyapong to the Committee following a submission by Alhaji Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, Minority Chief Whip and MP for Asawase, that he had an audio in which Mr Agyapong was heard inciting the public to beat up Mr Hussein-Suale.
He said MPs were held in high esteem and also enjoyed some privileges provided for in the Constitution, which required of them to guard their utterances.
Alhaji Muntaka said the comments of Mr Agyapong, which were at variance with the requirements in the Code of Conduct of Parliament, were an affront to the dignity of Parliament.
He said it was necessary for the Privileges Committee of Parliament to investigate the matter and punish him if found guilty of breach of privilege of Parliament.
He requested to be allowed to play the audio of Mr Agyapong making the alleged inciting comments.
Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader, responding to Alhaji Muntaka’s submission said members had not heard Mr Agyapong making the comments and therefore the said audio could not be played in the chamber
