Controversial Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, said he has been cursed many times by women in his constituency.
This is because he gave each of the women a gift of GH¢50 after he had invited them to an event, but these women felt the GH¢50 was not enough and so they curse him for “wasting their time”.
Agyapong was speaking at a women empowerment event in Wa, the Upper West Region, where he made the revelation, according to a report sighted by Happyghana.com on Mynewgh.com.
He was said to have been impressed the way women from Wa appreciated a similar amount paid to them by their MP, Anthony Karbo, after a successful event. Agyapong revealed that if only his constituency members would show appreciation for what he offers them, he would have been an MP for life.
“In my constituency, an occasion like this if you give a woman GH¢50 she would walk from this ground to her house cursing you for wasting her time standing in the scorching sun like this. But here, I have been made to understand even GH¢50 makes a differences in a woman’s life”, he said.
“I told Karbo when he told me his story that here even GH¢50 changes the women’s life and I said God, why didn’t you bring me here, I would have been a Member of Parliament (MP) for life”, Agyapong added.
While addressing economic empowerment women group dubbed Ti-Deltaa, in Lawra, Ken Agyapong urged the beneficiary women not to see it as an avenue to cook good meals for their husbands but engage in lucrative businesses that will help them cater for their families.
He stressed that that was the only way they could develop themselves economically and fend for their families.
Meanwhile, Ken has been in the news recently following a revelation he made that an old man gave his mother a concoction to drink when she was pregnant with him.
That concoction, he said, made him the fierce, brave and fearless character he is now, which his late mother found it hard to understand before her death.
