“It’s S*xual harassement” – Minta Akandoh speaks on images of Ursula Owusu-Ekuful sitting on his laps in Parliament
Hon. Kwabena Minta Akandoh who is the Member of Parliament for the Juaboso Constituency has described as ‘s*xual harassment’ how Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful sat on his laps in Parliament.
During the first meeting of the Members of Parliament Elect, Ablekuma West constituency MP Ursula Owusu-Ekuful was spotted sitting on Hon. Minta Akandoh in the Chamber of Parliament.
Speaking during an interview with TV3, the Juaboso lawmaker indicated that what Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful did him is a form of S*xual harassment.
According to Hon. Kwabena Minta Akandoh, it is disgraceful for a married woman to sit on the laps of someone’s husband as the Ablekuma Central Constituency lawmaker did.
“I had to behave myself so I sat quietly untill and looked at her until she herself got up, that was disgraceful right, married woman sitting von the laps of somebody’s husband.” The Juaboso lawmaker said.
He further added that, since the incident occurred between him and Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, his wife has not taken it easy because, she thought Hon. Ursula shouldn’t have done such a thing.
“Since then, my wife has not taken it easy. She thought she shouldn’t have done that.
You know we’re in Ghana and we have traditions and there are certain parts of the body of the woman which is suppose to be for your husband. So if you sit on the laps of another person’s husband and infact even in law, it’s s*xual harassment.”
The first meeting of the 8th Parliament has left many Ghanaians disappointed in the legislators as it was characterized with chaos and fightings over seating arrangements in the parliamentary chamber since a clear majority cannot be changed easily determined as both NDC and NPP had 137 seats each with on independent parliamentarian.
