Kennedy Agyapong to be jailed tomorrow?
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Assin Central, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong on Monday, September 28 failed to show up in court to answer contempt charges due to what his lawyers said was “complication from a post-COVID-19 condition.”
His lead counsel, Mr Kwame Gyan explained that his client got the complication after last Friday’s court hearing.
He therefore presented a medical excuse form and requested the court to adjourn the case for 14 days to allow his client to recuperate.
The presiding judge, Justice Amos Wuntah Wuni agreed to adjourn the case but ordered the medical doctor who wrote the medical excuse duty to appear before the court on Thursday.
Ghanaian broadcaster cum political activist, Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor reacting to the court order in a Facebook post has said that the Member of Parliament can never escape jail sentence tomorrow.
He added that if Kennedy Agyapong jokes with Judge Amos Wunta Wuni, the high court judge who is presiding over this case, he will be jailed.
He wrote; Please if you know Kennedy Agyapong please tell him if he plays careless judge WUNTA will jail him tomorrow oooo yoooo
