Osei Kyei-Mensah AND Afenyo Markin

A Political Science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has accused Deputy Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin of orchestrating the removal of Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

Dr. Kwasi Amakye Boateng strongly believes Mr. Afenyo-Markin was the one who leaked information about the changes in the Majority leadership to the public.

“Afenyo-Markin himself was the person who disclosed that information, he is fully involved in any plot within the party, including undermining his boss,” he said.

Dr. Boateng made these claims in an interview on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem Wednesday following reports of a potential reshuffle in the majority leadership in Parliament.

Rumours were circulating about the possible removal of Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, with his Deputy Alexander Afenyo-Markin poised to replace him.

Indeed, the National Council and NEC meeting of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Monday had this change on the agenda, although no decision was made.

Addressing journalists in Parliament, a group of NPP MPs led by First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu warned that no change would be tolerated.

But Mr. Amakye Boateng said the Majority know it was Mr. Afenyo-Markin who leaked the information that is why they did not bother to probe.
