Serwaa Broni, a name which has for the past few weeks gained prominence on social media owing to allegations by a Canadian-based Ghanaian woman against some of the country’s top political figures has found its way to Parliament.
This was after the Member of Parliament for Bongo East, Edward Bawa cited the name as an example whiles making a submission on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday, November 3, 2021.
The Members of Parliament became hysterical after Bawa mentioned the name during a statement on why the quest for wealth should be checked so as not to affect the collective interest of the country
“That is why I indicate that as a country, we should not allow our selfish, unbridled quest for riches affect our national agenda. That is why today, you will go to Bongo or Adaklu and you have small children, maybe the future Edward Bawas, maybe the future Serwaa Bronis …”
The mention of Serwaa Broni was greeted with laughter from the MPs, prompting a reaction from the Second Deputy Speaker Lawrence Asiamah Amoako who was acting in the absence of the main speaker and first deputy speaker.
Lawrence Asiamah Amoako requested of Edward Bawa to withdraw the ‘Serwaa Broni’ bit of his statement.
