Member of Parliament for Ablekuma North, Nana Akua Owusu Afriyie needed to be escorted with the aid of security personnel at the Awoshie-Mangoase area into her vehicle Tuesday morning after irate teens hooted at her and chased her away.
The lawmaker had visited the area after her notice was drawn to an ongoing protest by citizens, to assist the scenario and calm nerves.
Residents who could have none of that from her, met her with complaints, amidst chants of “shame” and “you’ve failed us”.
The MP who clearly was raved and taken back returned into her vehicle; escorted with the help police employees and a number of her men, and drove away.
Angry citizens who have been protesting the demise of a number of their colleagues as a result of faulty trafic light in the area, had massed up the Mangoase traffic light, blocking the road and expressing their concerns.
The demonstrators, wielding placards were furious at government whom they declare have turned deaf ears and blind eyes to their calls for traffic light in the area to be fixed.
Per their accounts, the absence of operational traffic light in the area has accounted for gory accidents and subsequently, the death of 2 of their colleagues, in the past 4 days, with the latest being Monday evening.
