Why Kennedy snubbed some Parliamentarians – Kumawu MP explains

Ernest Yaw Anim, the Kumawu Member of Parliament (MP), has denied rumors that he was ignored by Ken Agyapong at the 2024 Budget Presentation in Parliament.

Mr. Anim asserts that Ken Agyapong did not intentionally ignore the situation; rather, he was absorbed in a discussion with Sefwi-Akontombra MP during a brief intermission prior to the reading of the budget.

Mr. Anim confirmed that, at the moment, he went up to Ken Agyapong to greet him along with MP Akwasi Darko representing Bosome Freho. But Ken was already having a chat with Hon. Alex Tetteh, and he was too preoccupied to notice them because of the topic.

Akwasi Boateng entered the conversation with the intention of greeting Ken. But Ken was preoccupied with the conversation that was going on, so Akwasi Boateng was unable to welcome him.

Mr. Anim emphasized that the situation was not a deliberate snub by Ken Agyapong but rather a coincidental moment amid the hustle and bustle of parliamentary proceedings.

The incident, captured by cameras, had sparked speculation of tension within the majority caucus, especially as Ken Agyapong appeared visibly irritated and declined handshakes from some colleagues, including Akwasi Boateng.

Political observers had linked the incident to earlier accusations by Ken Agyapong, who, ahead of the party’s presidential primary, accused some members, including MPs, of mudslinging. Ken had expressed displeasure with the support given to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, whom he described as the establishment candidate.

However, Mr. Anim in an interview clarified that Ken Agyapong’s frustration was directed at issues related to the recent parliamentary primaries and not a deliberate act of ignoring his fellow MP.

He insisted that it was a regular exchange of conversation and not indicative of any intentional disregard.

“There was no intentional disregard from Ken Agyapong; rather, Ken was engrossed in a conversation with Sefwi-Akontombra MP during a brief break before the budget reading. At the time, Akwasi Boateng joined us to greet Ken, but due to the ongoing discussion, Ken’s attention was focused, and as a result, Akwasi Boateng couldn’t extend his greetings. It was a regular exchange of conversation and not indicative of any intentional disregard”
