Amid the chaotic and reprehensible event seen from Ghana’s Parliament was a very unfortunate and hillarious photo of the just elected MP for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu sitting comfortably on the laps of Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, elected MP for Juaboso.
Draped in a kente outfit, Ursula Owusu was seen relaxing on the laps of Akando as she folded her arms comfortably.
In an interview with Joy News, Akandoh explained how the viral photo came about.
“When the NPP MPs came in, they saw that we were on the right side so they went to the left but Ursula refused. Cletus Avoka was sitting down and decided to go to the washroom, by the time he came back Ursula had taken his seat. We tried to persuade her but she declined. She also left the seat and I sat on it. When she came she just sat on my lap. She didn’t say anything to me, she just sat and I didn’t say anything”, he said.
The calm posture was a sharp contrast of her posture earlier in the night when she literally had a brawl with Collins Dauda, the elected Member of Parliament for Asutifi South.
Upon arriving in the chamber, Ursula realised that the NDC MPs have overtaken their right side of the house which was previously occupied by the NPP MPs.
Ursula persisted on sitting with the NDC MPs despite attempts by the leadership of the NPP to have her sit on the left side.
An Unfortunate turmult ensued in the process and Ursula pushed Collins Dauda to the floor which raised temperatures high in an already ‘Karately’ charged chamber.
At a point in time, military officers were seen in the house, which many described as very unlawful.
