- Tema West MP stops TMA officials from carrying out de-congestion exercise
- The MP also threatened a TMA official with bodily harm if he returned to carry out the exercise
- Hon. Ahenkorah encouraged residents to resist the TMA exercise
Member of Parliament for Tema West Constituency, Hon. Kingsly Carlos Ahenkora, recently lost his temper after galvanizing his constituents to stop a de-congestion exercise by Tema Municipal Assembly (TMA) officials.
Hon. Ahenkorah, having caught wind of a de-congestion exercise being undertaken by Tema Municipal Assembly officials, rushed to the location in order to stop the exercise.
Upon arriving on location, Hon. Ahenkorah galvanized residents and shouted "choboi", after which he instructed residents to stop the TMA officials from destroying their property.
Even though the TMA officials were reported being guarded by a joint task force from the Ghana Navy and Ghana Police Force, armed guards failed to intervene as residents attacked TMA officials in full view of their guards.

Hon. Ahenkorah, who is also a Deputy Minister of Transportation, insisted on speaking to Maxwell Adu Boateng and banged on the TMA engineer's car threatening to have the TMA official shot if he attempted to carry out the exercise again.
“Come out; come out if you are man. Come and face me. I will let my people shoot you the next time you dare carry out this exercise in my area,” said an irate Hon. Ahenkora.
