A flagbearer hopeful for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has revealed how his insistence to do politics cost him his mother’s life.
He says his mother died as a result of threats made against him by a fellow politician’s brother.
The vociferous legislator says since he entered mainstream politics, there have been series of insults and threats upon his life, a situation his mother couldn’t contain.
According to him, the mother had pleaded with him to quit politics but he refused.
“My mother died because of threats on me,” Ken Agyapong has intimated.
“When Hon. Collins Dauda’s brother threatened to kill me, my mother couldn’t take it. She died on the 13th of November. During the week she died, I visited her, and she was pleading with me to stop politics, and she said: Kwame you’ll kill me. That was Thursday, on Friday, I left for Kumasi and while returning to Accra on Sunday afternoon, I got the bad news that my mother had died. And I was told she was saying my heart, my heart and Kwame you will kill me.”
The Assin Central lawmaker says he is still grieving his late mother but determined to continue fighting for what he believes in.
The MP has further indicated that threats made against his life will not intimidate him, and he will continuously fight for the welfare of ordinary citizens and speak to the ills of society.
