Kennedy Agyapong does not deserve the title “honourable” – Murtala Mohammed

The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Murtala Mohammed has noted the Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong does not deserve the title ‘honourable’ because of his “reckless” utterances among other actions.

According to him, although it is possible for one to err, people with the title must note that “you are given that title because you are expected to behave a certain way.”

“For you to be honourable, you are expected to be absolutely honourable to be addressed as such,” he said.

His comment comes on the back of a video, circulating on social media, of Mr Agyapong speaking on his television station, Net 2 TV, as he verbally abused and threatened to attack Luv FMs’ journalist, Erastus Asare Donkor, for the journalistic work that he undertook during the recent shootings and killing incident at Ejura.

In the video, which circulated on Friday, July 9, Mr Agyapong, who is also the chairman of Parliament’s Defense Committee, said, if he were the President of Ghana, he would have ensured that the journalist, is beaten mercilessly.

Murtala Mohammed, who was commenting on Mr Agyapong’s utterances on Prime Morning on Joy Prime TV Thursday, July 15 said, “one of the reasons why I have insisted I don’t want to be addressed as honourable, is because the conduct of some of the so-called honourable members are absolutely dishonourable.”

This is indubitably true, the title should depicts your attitude. You are called an honorable and you are suppose to live to that standard… throwing tantrums and using demeaning words and threats on tv shouldn’t be associated with an honorable. Sadly enough this has been going on for long and most youths look up to people like these men … he should be punished so as to serve as warning to wayward politicians

The laws and odds favors only powerful and rich folks ooo bro. There will be no punishment meted out to him. You get money? :joy::joy:

Eventually their deeds gone catch up to them, but for now they move like the wind freely. These people are actually role models to some people. Now to make an impact you need to insult and throw shots at our leaders before you get recognized. When there’s threat and insults then people tend to listen…

We glorify anything in the country simply because the people have money. What we don’t know is that even fools can also make money. We respect money over wisdom and common sense. Why won’t Kennedy be talking trash to everyone because he has money
