Occupy Ghana, Majority Leader & Needless Speculation


One would have thought that Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the MP for Suame and Majority Leader in Parliament known his onions in political communication until his recent slip that a well known businessman stormed Parliament and “tried to do something” as a form of mediation when some members of the Majority called for the sack of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.

Any student of law or communication would know straight away the Majority Leader was swimming in troubled waters and could drown.

Listening to the full context in which Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu spoke in that interview with Joy FM’s Evans Mensah, it was clear the politician was involved in needless speculation and chatter that in no way solves the challenge at hand.

You are the Majority Leader and you are telling the public that a business man, outside Parliament attempted to mediate a crisis on your side? What then is your job if you would stand akimbo for a so called businessman to mediate between your MPs and your own Finance Minister on such a sensitive matter?

It is significant to note that the Majority Leader made this comment at a time speculations were high in the media that someone had attempted to bribe the MP’s who revolted for the sack of the Finance Minister.

The response from the Majority Leader suggests that the unnamed business man was the lead character in the supposed attempted bribery drama.

After Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu got to know about the about the development he is narrating to the public, what did he do to get the fine details and be double sure that nothing untoward had happened and if indeed something illegitimate had taken place, the law should work.

Some two weeks or so down the line, dust has still not settled on the needless chatter from Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu:

Pressure group, Occupy Ghana has petitioned the Special Prosecutor to probe the alleged attempt to bribe some Majority MPs who were calling for the dismissal of the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

The petition specifically mentions Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and refers to the interview he granted Joy FM.

Completely avoidable detraction only if the Majority Leader had exercised discretion in his communication.

Perhaps, it was not a slip on the part of Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu but a well calculated strategy to support the cause of the revolting MPs.

We at the New Publisher believe he is too smart a political leader to have truly erred in that communication.

But whatever it is, the Special Persecutor has been officially petitioned so if and when Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu is invited to help with the probe, he could help provide further and better particulars of this well known businessman and whatever he attempted to do or did behind closed doors with the said MPs.

Closed doors that are now being flung ajar, kind courtesy, the Majority Leader for the public to walk in and see whatever was kept veiled.
