A report of the Privileges Committee of Parliament on breach of privilege and contemptuous remarks allegedly made by Hon Kenedy Agyepong MP for Assin Central in 2018 which was to be considered by Parliament today 12th February 2019, has been postponed to tomorrow Wednesday, 13th February, 2019.

When the Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon Prof Michael Aaron Oquaye asked Hon Joseph Osei Owusu Chairman of the Privileges Committee and First Deputy Speaker of Parliament to move the motion for the adoption of the committee's report, he ( Hon Joseph Osei Owusu ) explained that since there is another case of alleged contempt of Parliament against Hon Kennedy Agyepong for which Hon Muntaka Mubarak the Minority Whip dragged Hon Kennedy Agyepong before the committee in January 2019, leadership of the House decided that the second referral be dealt with by the committee so that both reports could be considered by the House at the same time .

However, the Speaker Rt Hon Prof Michael Aaron Oquaye disagreed to the suggestion and ruled that the report on the first allegation of contempt of Parliament which was made by the same Hon Muntaka Mubarak against Kennedy Agyepong last year, should be considered by the House tomorrow (13th February ) .

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mubarak Muntaka, has dragged Kennedy Agyapong to the Privileges Committee of Parliament.

Muntaka wants the Assin Central to be charged for inciting violence against the murdered Tiger Eye PI journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

Muntaka, who is also the Minority Chief Whip, said Ken Agyapong incitement of violence against the Tiger Eye PI journalist was in contempt of parliament.

“I made this complaint of contempt of parliament against my own colleague for the embarrassment and uncalled for comments and incitement of the public against a member of the public that unfortunately led to the death of the gentleman," he said.

Ahmed Hussein-Suale was part of the investigative team of Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Tiger Eye PI that uncovered the massive corruption at the Ghana Football Association (GFA) last year.

He was shot in his car on his way home in Madina by unknown gunmen last two weeks.
