Police whisked away Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu after angry artisans hooted, pelt sachet water at him

It has emerged that a team of police officers led by the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Afful Boakye Yiadom today, Monday, 18 July 2022 whisked away the Member of Parliament for Suame and Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu from angry Suame artisans. The Majority Leader of Parliament and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs who escaped mob attack from his disgruntled constituents  was hooted, pelted with sachets of water, and chased by the angry artisans when he attempted to inspect work on the Suame highway.

It would be recalled that the artisans last Friday blocked the highway and demonstrated against the MP and the government for not ensuring that the road was fixed. They warned of another demonstration if the contractor does not return to the road to have it fixed. The contractor had returned to the road with the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs going to inspect the work done. The angry artisans upon hearing the arrival of the MP thronged the highway and started hooting and pelting him (the MP) with sachets of water. The MP who was accompanied by the Municipality Chief Executive for the area, Mr Maxwell Ofosu Boakye, and some party members had to seek protection on top of a storey building at Suame Tarkwa Makro. Despite meeting with the leadership of the artisans over the road on the storey building, the angry artisans were still gathered in front of the building chanting war songs.

The regional police commander, DCOP Afful Boakye Yiadom who led the team of police to the scene had to whisk the Parliamentary Affairs Minister away in his (commander) vehicle to prevent the angry artisans from attacking him.
