- Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has finally broken his silence on insults hurled at him
- Most people found his opinions on the proposed new chamber not so right and descended heavily on him
- He however says he did not want to descent into the gutters with those persons by trading insults with them
The Majority Leader in Parliament and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has finally broken his silence on those who were attacking him about his comments on the proposed $200m parliamentary chamber.
According to him, he had a very good reason why he chose to ignore those who were heartlessly hurling insults at him on his opinions.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM morning show, the legislator said despite communication gap between his outfit and some Members of Parliament (MPs) on the matter, it became an opportunity for both Ghanaians and some MPs to hurl insults at him.
“People roasted me on their Facebook pages and other social media platform. I read everything but I chose not to go into the gutters with them because you don’t have to go out naked when a mad man took your cloth while you are bathing.
People who are supposed to have known better thought that I have gotten Kyei Mensah Mensah Bonsu so let me insult him without first thinking of the issue onboard,” he revealed.
Kyei Mensah Bonsu threw out reasons to justify the building of a new 450-seater chamber for Parliamentarians.
He indicated that the building of a new chamber was necessary because the current structure which was built in 1965 by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was not built for Parliamentary purpose and hence the need for a befitting parliament house.
