  The Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu had to be whisked away by police personnel during an interaction with his constituents on July 18, 2022.

The constituents, who had been demonstrating about the poor roads in the Suame Constituency, got incensed by the presence of the lawmaker and threatened to attack him.

The early intervention of the Police in the Ashanti region prevented them from beating him up. Some of the angry residents threw various objects in his direction and hooted at him.

It would be recalled that the artisans in Suame last Friday blocked the highway and demonstrated against the MP and the government for not ensuring that the road was fixed.

They warned of another demonstration if the contractor does not return to the road to have it fixed.

The contractor had returned to the road with the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs going to inspect the work done.
