During the ongoing parliamentary session on Tuesday, February 13, a heated exchange unfolded between Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong and Sylvester Tetteh, MP for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro, with tensions escalating to the brink of a physical altercation.
In a dramatic turn of events, Kennedy Agyapong approached his colleague, Sylvester Tetteh, sparking a contentious debate within the chamber. Despite the session in progress, Agyapong engaged in a verbal confrontation, vehemently urging Tetteh to step aside.
The sudden confrontation caught many MPs off guard, leading to a more intense argument with both legislators standing face-to-face, their expressions contorted with anger. Tensions escalated, raising concerns of an impending physical clash.
Before matters could escalate further, fellow MPs intervened to defuse the situation, separating Agyapong and Tetteh and averting a potential exchange of blows. Deputy Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo Markin played a crucial role in guiding Tetteh away from Agyapong, restoring order in the chamber.
The incident prompted inquiries into the cause of the heated exchange, with allegations surfacing that Agyapong had approached Tetteh demanding payment for alleged debts. Tetteh reportedly denied being indebted and suggested resorting to court if Agyapong was convinced of his claim, further fueling the confrontation.
