KroMA MCE removal saga: Police arrest one Assembly member


THE KPESHIE Divisional Police Command has arrested one of the aggrieved assembly members who have initiated a campaign for the impeachment and removal of the Krowor Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Joshua Nii Bortey.

Mr Lawrence Bortey Borquaye, the Assembly member for the Nii Laweh Electoral Area, is said to have posted inappropriate words against the MCE, who was said to have fixed streetlights in some part of the municipality.

Confirming the arrest of his colleague assembly member, Sebastian Ampah, the Assembly member for Mukweidjor Electoral Area, told Starr News that police in Nungua had picked his colleague for allegedly assaulting the MCE verbally.

“The MCE was found fixing streetlights in the arrested assemblyman’s electoral area without his knowledge, so the assemblyman posted on his Facebook page that the Jonky [junky] MCE is fixing streetlights without the assemblyman of the area.”

Mr Ampah added that the MCE lodged a complaint at Nungua police station for one Lawrence Nii Bortey Borquaye for using foul words against him.

“There are indications that he will be charged and arraigned,” he added

The arrested assembly member has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breaches of peace.
