Friends of the Rawlingses have vented their spleen on outspoken Member of Parliament (MP) Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong over his latest attacks on former President Jerry John Rawlings.
The NPP firebrand on Boiling Point on Tuesday literally rained curses on the former President after jabbing the Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces Colonel Aggrey Quashie indicating he will suffer so much pain to the glory of God before he finally dies.
According to the outspoken Member of Parliament, this will be as a result of the atrocities Mr Rawlings allegedly committed as a military man in uniform.
But the group observed that the conduct of Mr Agyapong smacks of imbecility which is a great embarrassment not only to his party but also to parliament and the people he represents.
“He is the very epitome of what we do not need in parliament. The people’s representative is now playing God because of some so-called wealth. Kennedy Agyapong deserves to be staying in the wild than in parliament. We never heard him contribute to any debate or make any significant input to move Ghana forward except trotting from one radio station to another spewing rubbish and threatening everyone.
How can his party keep quiet while he attacks the military hierarchy, businessmen and now the former President”, convener of the group Hardi Ibrahim quizzed in a statement copied to MyNewsGH.com.

We believe that parliament deserves to be occupied by levelheaded people who are ready to exercise humility, consult their constituents, and make meaningful contributions to national discourse. What signal is this man sending to young and upcoming Ghanaians when at the least opportunity he churns out vitriol and barks like a wild, rabid dog?
We dare not play God like Kennedy but at this rate, he should not expect old age to treat him nice. We wish him long life so he can suffer the true pain and agony of someone who exercised thoughtlessness and foolhardiness in his earlier years.
Let this be the first caution to Kennedy that henceforth any attacks on the former President will be met forcefully and in a far better measure.
Instead of initiating good policies for his constituents and country, he is rather blaming everything on innocent Ghanaians. We are aware of his lawless activities behind the scenes of governance and at the right time, we shall expose him.
We are pleading with the former President Rawlings not to worry or bother himself over this unprovoked attack from a reckless and a serial loose-talker. He deserves no attention from you Sir.
Long Live J. J. Rawlings!
Long live NDC!
