In the wake of the alleged partisan distribution of food to the vulnerable, media practitioner and a lawyer, Paul Adom-Otchere has taken a swipe at Member of Parliament for Klottey-Korle, Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings describing her behaviour as “unparliamentary.”

Paul Adom-Otchere advised the MP, who is the daughter of former President Jerry John Rawlings to take the politics of Ghana and her constituency very seriously and learn from her parents and how they conducted themselves when they were leading the country.

In response to the conduct of the legislator, the host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV on Thursday, April 16, 2020, described the claims of the MP as very unfortunate and unparliamentary which should not have come from a politician of her calibre considering the background she is coming from.

According to Mr. Adom-Otchere, the best thing she should have done when she heard the allegations was to have called the minister responsible to either lodge her complaint or obtain the veracity of the claims before going public.

Paul Adom-Otchere said, “are you learning something; that as an honourable member of parliament, before you speak to the press, you must confront the allegation with the authority…you confront the allegation because you have position…you have power, you have an influence…you are an elected member of parliament, you ought to be listened to by the authorities.”

He added that “let it get into your system Dr. Rawlings, you come from a privileged home. Behave properly, stop misbehaving.”

“Look at your mother, look at Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, look at her public conduct for 25 years, you should learn from that. It’s very easy to learn from that. I mean even I who she’s not my mother I learn from it. Other people who is not their mother they learn from it. You, you’re sitting down there you can’t learn from it? And you come and issue baseless statement like this and you don’t even know that you’re shooting yourself in the foot…You have heritage at home to learn from,” Adom-Otchere continued.

This criticism from the journalist follows an allegation made by Dr. Zanetor Rawlings against the government that the distribution of food relief to the vulnerable in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown has been politicised. In a viral video, Dr. Agyemang-Rawlings alleged that people are virtually asked to produce their party cards as a condition for receiving food relief.

The allegation resulted in a “banter” between the MP and Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamle Morrison who called for the public to disregard what she described as “falsehood” churned by the MP.
