Two senior members of Ghana’s legislature, nearly fought on the floor of the House on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, and Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong almost ended up in fisticuffs on the floor of parliament over a request made by the latter he should be referred to the privileges committee over Ahmed Hussein-Suale’s murder.
The confrontation which was recorded from the public gallery of parliament via phone was later shared on social media.

The 31-second video showed the two lawmakers in verbal exchanges in Twi (local Ghanaian dialect) while their colleagues tried to calm the tempers.
The Minority Chief Whip called the Assin Central MP an ‘animal and a foolish good-for-nothing individual’. In response, Kennedy also loved to make Muntaka uncomfortable in Ghana.
Hussein-Suale was shot thrice on Wednesday, 16 January 2019 at Madina, a suburb of Accra while driving home around 10 p.m. His assailants made their getaway on a motorbike.
Shortly after Ahmed’s gruesome murder, world-renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas pieced together a short video containing an old clip of Mr Agyapong’s incitement of violence against Mr Hussein-Suale last year after Tiger Eye PI premiered the Number 12 undercover documentary which exposed rot in African football that led to the resignation of Ghana’s FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and his subsequent banning for life from all football-related activities by FIFA, for taking bribe.
Apart from inciting violence against Hussein-Suale, Mr Agyapong is also seen in the clip, exposing the undercover journalist’s identity by splashing his photos on his NET 2 TV station as well as on social media. Mr Agyapong has, however, denied any involvement in the murder.
Meanwhile, Mr Agyapong has said he will personally gift GHS100,000 to anybody who provides credible information that will lead to the arrest of the killers of Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

“Let me announce today that I will give anybody who will help identify the killers of Ahmed, GHS100, 000.
“Because this is my reputation, I have been accused by Anas of being behind the assassination. This is a human being who has lost his life. No matter his errors, he had the right to life.”
