14.09.2020 LISTEN

The outspoken Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, is expected to appear before an Accra High Court to explain why he threw caution to the wind and insulted a judge.

Though the Assin Central MP has publicly apologised for his outbursts, the high court will still host him today.

“I hereby summon the said Kennedy Ohene Agyapong per a warrant issued under my hand and seal to appear before the High Court (Land Court 12) on Monday, September 2020 at 10am to show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt, if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the court,” the High Court Order said.

The MP, allegedly, made a scandalised statement in the case in, which Susan Bandoh and Christopher Akuetteh Kotei had sued him (Kennedy Ohene Agyapong), one Ibrahim Jaja, Nana Yaw Duodu aka Sledge and the Inspector General of Police in a land matter.

Mr Agyapong's appearance before the Court comes after the High Court’s ( Land Court 12) attention had been drawn to a television (NET2 TV) and Radio( Oman Fm Station) programme allegedly aired on September 2, this year.

In the said programme, the MP is said to have “scandalised and threatened” the Court.

The order of the Court is signed by Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni, a High Court Judge, on September 9, this year.

Mr Agyapong has however rendered an unqualified apology ahead of his appearance.
