The Member of Parliament of Atwimah Nwabiagya South, Emmanuel Adjei Ahwire has been chased out by his constituents at Amankyea and Kobeng communities in the Ashanti region.
The MP was on a “Talk to Your MP” tour in the constituency on issues affecting them economically.
However angry community members of Kobeng who were said to be disappointed in the performance of the MP, upon seeing him, started abusing him verbally.
The angry residents threw various implements at the MP and hooted at him over the poor road network in the area.
It took his security detail to calm tensions and whisk him away.
Narrating the incident on Abusua FM, Mr. Adjei Ahwire said he was not hurt but described the development as an unfortunate.
The MP however added that his constituents have every right to protest against the lack of developmental projects in the constituency adding that ongoing projects have been abandoned.
He blamed the situation on COVID-19 and the Russian Ukraine war.
He added that their concerns have been presented to the Minister for Road and Highways.
This is the second time a Member of Parliament has been attacked in the Ashanti region, the stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) over lack of development.
