I wasn’t chased away – MP insists

Source The Ghana Report

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Atwima Nwabiagya South, Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere, has refuted claims that his constituents chased him away after the death of a resident.

A viral video showed the MP being whisked away by the police from being attacked by an angry mob during a visit to his constituency.

The angry mob criticised the MP after a 57-year-old man drowned following Wednesday’s downpour in the Ashanti region.

Reports indicate that the deceased drowned after attempts to cross a bridge during the rains.

Residents attributed his death to the poor state of roads and a broken bridge in the area.

Rebutting claims of being mobbed in an interviewthe MP said that he was hooted at by his constituents and not chased away as reported in media circles, describing such claims as misleading.

He appreciated his angry constituents’ concerns and sympathised with the bereaved family.

The legislator admitted the bridge had become unmotorable.

“The story is misleading. I wasn’t chased away. I didn’t go there to commiserate with the family, even though I had planned to do that another time. The Divisional Police Commander ACP Joe Owusu called me on my phone and informed me that there had been some agitations at the bridge as a result of the death of a motor rider who intended to cross to go and do his business”.

He added, “When I went there, policemen were there, the commander and his officers were 10 in number, just to discuss how best we can solve the issue. When it rains, the place gets flooded, they can’t use it, the bridge is not passable, and the unfortunate happened. I wasn’t chased away, though the residents started massing up when I went there. They hooted at me. I do appreciate their concerns because it involves the loss of life. I wasn’t chased away or pelted with stones. The police escorted me to my car, and I drove away”.

He admitted that there was a splash of water but denied the stone was pelted at him.

“I saw a splash of water, I saw an object fall into the water, but I cannot say it was targeted at me or not,” he further clarified.
