The Government has described as unacceptable, the misconduct of infamous Ahafo Ano-South District Chief Executive (DCE), Gabriel Barima, for storming out of a public event in a fit of anger after he was heckled.

The tweaa DCE, as Barima has become known, abruptly ended his speech at the event after a member of his audience used the local expletive tweaa midway through his speech.

An obviously infuriated Barima then charged into the crowd of hospital employees in an attempt to single out his heckler.

He exploded in his anger and threw his hands about as he dressed down his alleged heckler among the crowd.

A video of the incident went viral on social media recently.

A statement from the local government and rural development ministry, signed by deputy minister Emmanuel Kojo Agyekum said the DCE has been reprimanded by sector Minister Akwasi Oppong Fosu.

According to the statement, the Government took serious view of Mr Barimas conduct as it runs contrary to provisions in the code of conduct for public officials launched last year.

The Minister cautioned Mr Barima to refrain from similar conduct in the future and show better leadership in his dealings with the people of his District.

According to the statement, the Government took cognisance of Mr Barimas profuse apologies and genuine show of remorse following the incident.
