The NDC Member of Parliament for Ho West Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah, has assaulted the Propaganda Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ketu South Constituency at a regional meeting on Tuesday.
Sylvester Kafui explained that during the meeting to declare support for President Mills' candidacy, he rose to ask for an amendment to a motion being moved by the party executives for mass endorsement of President Mills, but attracted the wrath of the MP who attempted to drag him out of the meeting hall.
He added that after the meeting he was confronted by Mr. Bedzrah who held him by the shirt, shook him violently tearing his shirt buttons in the process and threatened him to leave the meeting grounds if he didn't want to co-operate.
The MP said Kafui showed gross disrespect by interrupting the Regional Minister who was speaking at the time and he only asked him to walk out if he could not wait for the Regional Minister to complete his submission.
According to the MP, Kafui walked up to him after the meeting and told him he is a disgrace of an MP but he did not react, adding that there was no reason for him to attack his colleague over the issue and that people have the right to support whoever they want to.
The Regional Minister however did not deny or confirm whether Mr. Bedzrah attacked Sylvester Kafui after the meeting.
