- NPP's Asare Kofi Israel has reportedly been disciplined for disrespecting a queen mother
- According to reports, he was given some lashes over his unsavory comments about the traditional ruler
- Following the disciplinary action, the townsfolk have been warned to desist from disrespecting elders
A communicator of the New Patriotic Party, Asare Kofi Israel, has been given 40 lashes at the Drobo palace for insulting the queen mother of the Drobo Traditional Council.
The said disciplinary action, which was sighted by YEN.com.gh on myjoyonline.com, is said to have taken place today Monday, December 14, 2020, in Jaman South District, Bono region of Ghana.
The NPP communicator is reported to have used some unpleasant words against the queen mother which did not go down well with the traditional authorities.
As a result, he was summoned to the palace and made to serve the punishment for his comments as he was made to receive 40 lashes.
The traditional authorities went on to warn him to exhibit good behaviour in the traditional area or face ejection.
Photos that have since gone viral on social media have shown Asare Kofi Israel, looking all gloomy and teary after serving the punishment.
NPP leaders and the Drobo Traditional area leaders have not been on good terms.
This is because as the incumbent MP Hon. Yaw Afful who has lost his seat to NDC’s Okofo Darteh in the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections accused the Omanhene of the Drobo Traditional Area of using his powers to push his nephew Prince Marfo to win the NPP internal party parliamentary.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the current Member of Parliament-elect for Madina Constituency, Lawyer Francis-Xavier Sosu has shared his inspiring story of how he scaled over hurdles in life.
In a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, the new entrant into parliament, recounted how he had to struggle through life while squatting at the Malata Market in Accra.
He revealed how he had to push trucks and "sell everything sellable" just to be able to get some money to get by in life.
