The Majority Leader in Parliament and New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker for Suame Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has come under attack for describing the resigned Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe a dictator.
According to National Democratic Congress (NDC) communication team member in the region, Nurudeen Abass, the lawmaker lacks the moral right to say former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is a disgraceful person to Africa.
According to him Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu rather is a disgrace to Suame constituents and not Robert Mugabe who ruled the people of Zimbabwe for almost four decades.
“In terms of development, Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu is a disgrace to Suame constituents… What has he done for his people for twenty years in office?” the aspiring Ashanti Regional NDC communication officer quizzed.
For him to attack and describe Robert Mugabe as dictator and disgraceful person is barbaric. He should direct such words to himself”, the outspoken communicator fumed on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM’s morning show hosted by sit-in-host Papa Nyamekye.
The Suame lawmaker says former Zimbabwean President, Robert Gabriel Mugabe did not only “disgrace” his country but the entire leadership of the continent for over staying his presidency.
Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu who recalled how “lavish” Zimbabwe was during his working visit to the south central African country in the 80’s noted that the oldest dictator president in the world ruined the country with his style of leadership.
“I have worked in Zimbabwe during 1988/89/90. Zimbabwe then could be compared to some foreign countries. After going there after year 2000 I was very sad. In terms of infrastructure, bad road network, telephone services not working . . . it was really sad, lack of potable water and I asked myself where am I, all thanks to Robert Mugabe,” he said.
