Kennedy Agyapong political career
Although he may be a successful businessman, most of the Ghanaians, however, recognize him due to his strong political ideologies. Ohene first came to the political limelight when he was elected the Member of Parliament in 2000 to the seat of Assin North. After finishing the first term, Ghana went to the election board and elected Ohene again as their Member of Parliament in 2004 to the seat of Assin North. He retained his position both in the 2004 and 2008 parliamentary elections.
Agyapong developed an interest in politics and only became active in 2008 when he bid to be the presidential flag-bearer of his affiliated party. The party was the New Patriotic Party. However, he failed the bid, and the party elected another flag bearer who lost the election. Ohene was taken back by the loss and began criticizing the then National Democratic Congress government on several media platforms. Due to the public condemnation, Ohene was detained following the presidential order of John Evans Atta-Mills.
The arrest of the famous politician sparked a lot of political unrest in Ghana. To try and subdue the growing rebellion in Ghana, the President acknowledged that Ohene had made several remarks which he had found threatening. However, in opposition to the statements by the President, many were quick to point out that the comments of the politician only pointed out the various injustices to which members of the opposition party, particularly the market women were subjected to in the regions of Accra, when they showed up and tried to vote in their respective constituencies.
The detention, however, did not seem to fade the light of Kennedy of becoming a well-known politician in Ghana. Presently, Kennedy Agyapong is the chairman of the Communication Committee in Parliament, under the current presidency of Nana Akufo-Addo. When news of the former President John Mahama’s brother corruption scandal hit the headlines; Ohene was significantly taken back and vowed to commit suicide if the brother to Mahama was not jailed. According to Agyapong, the corruption activities were a significant contributor to the state losing its money.
To validate his claims, Kennedy gave an example of how John’s brother was corrupt. He claimed that Ibrahim Mahama defaulted paying his taxes for more than one year, during the period in which his brother was the President of the Republic of Ghana. The persistent personal campaigns of Ohene in regards to this corruption scandal of Ibrahim led to his investigation and the subsequent agreement of Mahama to pay the mentioned taxes. Following this incident, Agyapong got so much recognition and praises from many Ghanaians.

Agyapong once made an indirect attack on the Electoral Commissioner of Ghana Charlotte Osei for allegedly trading sex to acquire her position as the Electoral Commissioner boss. The claims by Kennedy brought him so much criticism from various Queen mothers, human rights activists, and a number of the members of parliament. Following this incident was the arrest of Ghana Football Association president Kwasi Nyantakyi in 2018. The news brought so much controversy primarily due to the investigative report of the journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Anas is an anti-corruption investigative journalist, who has continued to be threatened by Ohene following his media coverage that led to the arrest of the Ghana Football Association president. Ohene appeared for an interview on Adom FM on June 4, 2018, and went ahead to refer to Anas as ‘a blackmailer and an extortionist.’ The threats by Kennedy have made the Committee to Protect Journalist highly condemn the behavior of this famous Ghanaian politician. Kennedy Agyapong and Anas drama continue to make headlines in most media stations.
