Revealed: Kennedy Agyapong To Be Jailed For 14 Days For Calling A Judge Stupid


Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has been summoned by High Court judge Amos Wuntah Wuni for contempt.

His invitation could send him to jail for not less than 14 days, has learnt.

Ken Agyapong is said to have “scandalised” and “threatened” the judge and, by extension, the court in an ongoing land case.

On Wednesday, September 2, the lawmaker had threatened to petition the Chief Justice over a judgement given without his knowledge.

On a programme on Net 2 TV, Ken Agyapong called the judge “stupid” for delivering judgement when he was unaware of the case despite being the de jure owner of the land for 18 years.

“You are a stupid judge. I will face you,” Ken Agyapong said on the programme, which was simulcast on Oman FM.

“I am not Anas to take bribe from you,” he added in local language Twi.

He stressed: “I will deal with you”.

On Wednesday, the judge issued a warrant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP to appear on Monday, September 14 at 10:00am.

He is expected to “show cause why he should not be severely punished for contempt, if the matters are proven against him to the satisfaction of the Court”.
