But for the timely intervention of body guard of the Majority Leader of Ghana’s Eighth Parliament, a different story might have been told Monday, July 18.
The police officer whisked Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu away from ‘snare’ of angry Suame magazine artisans.
Reports gathered by 3news.com indicate that Mr Kyei Mensah Bonsu, during a working visit to the industrial enclave, was greeted with the shock of his life when the angry artisans hooted at him, chanting war songs to register their displeasure over what they describe as lack of infrastructural development in the area.
This is the second protest in less than week that artisans and residents of the area have staged, demanding immediate intervention to fix the roads within the area.
The latest was last Thursday when the artisans took to the streets and blocked roads to express their worry on how the bad road network has been affecting their livelihoods.
3news.com is learning that the Majority Leader’s visit to the industrial hub was part of moves to ascertain the situation to whip contractors in line but was unexpectedly met by the angry artisans.
In a video intercepted by 3news.com, the artisans are seen hooting at Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu to register their frustration and disappointment.
