Okatakyie Afrifa, a social activist and one the conveners of the fixthecountry movement has jabbed the majority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu over a statement he made on the floor of Parliament in connection with what transpired on the premises of Parliament over the protest staged by the group to Parliament. Okatakyie Afrifa said Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu can never make it to heaven.
On Friday, November 26, the majority leader, during the debate on the 2022 budget, said the fixthecountry demonstrators never presented any petition to the house. His comments comes after the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, alluded to the fact that, the group staged the demonstration due the proposed E-levy. According to Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, when the group was asked to bring ten people to the house, it resulted in confusion, and the group shredded the petition before them ( the majority and minority leaders).
But Okatakyie Afrifa claimed that is far from the truth. Narrating his side of the story, he explained that, they had had an agreement with the IGP that, if only they came to the Parliament House with about 500 people, their leaders could go and present the petition while the others wait outside, only for them to be told the police in charge of Parliament said the place is a security zone, hence they cannot be accommodated within the premises.
He went on further the say that, upon deliberation with the leadership of Parliament, they agreed to allow six demonstrators to enter the chamber, however, the group kicked against. They went for re-negotiation, the number was increased to ten, but the group was adamant. He stressed that the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu never saw the petition, not to talk of seeing them shredded it into pieces.
"... But there was no way that Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu saw the petition, so how did he come by that fallacy, that lie that we shredded the petition before them? This man does not speak the truth, he will never go to heaven", he said.
