Kennedy Agyapong's Account Of How Kyeremanteng Agyarko Died

Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong has recounted his interactions with late Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko before he died a week ago.

The Assin Central lawmaker disclosed how unhappy he was when he saw the dead legislator resting in a couch when he visited him at home after he was discharged from the Ridge Hospital.

Kennedy Agyapong says he advised the late Kyeremanteng Agyarko to seek medical attention outside the country.

“I told him that master if it’s money, it’s not a problem. You’re not poor, you better take your health seriously. I gave him examples of my experience at Korle Bu and 37 and everything but, he has very good friends who are medical doctors here so he was sure, so we left it,” Mr. Agyapong said in an interview with Ghanaweb on the sidelines of the one week memorial service of the dead MP.

He further narrates how he together with some other colleagues were against the deceased’s initial decision to do his surgery here in Ghana.

“I heard he was going to do the surgery on Saturday but we said no, we will not agree. We thought Boakye was the problem so we were going to do aluta. He is our senior brother so whatever we say he brushes it off. He said he was leaving it to Kwabena because he is in the medical field but when he saw the last results, he convinced himself that he will go abroad. We thought this was something that he will go and come back so I was there in US monitoring the thing,” Mr. Agyapong recounts.
