Kennedy Agyapong of Assin Central fame has made it emphatic that most Ghanaian MPs are broke taking into consideration the fact that they have no clear-cut investments aside from their salary.

To him, most MPs rely on Parliament to survive, calling for some contracts to be awarded to companies of MPs so that they can also make money to take care of their constituents.

Touching on his salary in an interview on Atinka TV, the brutally honest politician said that he receives GH¢11, 000 as salary but gives GH¢20,000 each to his two wives as chop money.

“I receive GH¢11,000 as salary bu I pay chop money of GH¢20,000 to each of my two wives so if I am being paid an amount of GH¢11,000, how would I have lived on this amount of money? If I did not have investments I would have broken down by now. I take care of my constituents and even other constituents because I’ve invested and I’ve other businesses,” Kennedy said.

As a reminder, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is a Ghanaian politician and businessman who represents Assin Central in parliament for the New Patriotic Party. He was first elected a member of parliament in 2000 to the seat of Assin till today.
