Member of parliament for the Abetifi constituency in the Eastern Region Peter Wiafe-Peprah died of a 'cardiac arrest' on Saturday afternoon while on admission at the 37 Military Hospital.
A colleague member of parliament who spoke to citifmonline.com under anonymity confirmed the death of Mr. Peprah. The 62-year old MP was once a minister in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration before joining the NPP in 2001.
He was a Ranking Member on the Trade and Industry Committee in Parliament. He becomes the second NPP MP to have died in the Eastern Region, after Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, who was stabbed to death at his home in Accra in February.
