Hon. Osei Mensah Bonsu, Member of Parliament for Suame and leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus in Parliament has opened fire on Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress who is also known as General mosquito for openly alleging that he, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, is the mastermind behind Carlos Ahenkorah’s condemnable act of snatching away ballot papers during the Speakership race on 7th January at the Legislative House.
Asiedu Nketia, while briefing the press the following day after the incident has said from the videos one “could see Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu talking to Carlos Ahenkorah seconds before the ballot papers snatching incident.”
When asked how he managed to understand the conversation between Carlos and Kyei Mensah since their conversation was inaudible in the video, he answered;
“I am a master of sign languages so I know what he was saying. When someone is gesticulating, I know what they mean,” he said.
The Majority Leader in the 7th Parliament explained on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia radio program what actually happened during his conversation with Carlos saying whilst his gaze was fixated on the sorting and counting of the papers, Mr. Ahenkorah walked to him and sought to know if the NPP were going to watch the NDC take the speakership from them without a fight.
He said, “…..I had no idea what Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah was up to though I had beckoned him on the floor of parliament and had instructed him (to go away from me)…”
Denying charges that he masterminded Ahenkorah’s act, he called everyone like Asiedu Nketia who accuses him of that a “sick mind.”
“I asked Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah to stay away from me and be saying those things so I’m surprised for anybody to think that am the one who goaded him to engage in what he did. It is only a sick mind who will think like that,” he noted.
