The Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) has suspended the Member of Parliament for Tema West, Carlos Ahenkorah for six months after he stopped a demolition exercise last week.

The decision was taken by the Public Relations and Complaints Committee (PRCC) of the Tema Metropolitan Assembly chaired by the presiding member of the Assembly, Richard Fiadomor.

The Tema West MP last week charged residents to stop the Tema Metropolitan Assembly task force from demolishing their properties.

The TMA Works Engineer, Maxwell Adu Boateng who was supervising the demolition exercise said the structures were creating a nuisance on the edges of the road.

But the MP, Carlos Ahenkora who got alerted of the exercise went to the scene and urged residents to stop the task force from destroying their properties.

The MP, who is also the Deputy Minister of Transport subsequently decided to question Mr Adu Boateng about the demolition exercise.

But residents said the Works Engineer, upon sensing danger of the angry MP, fled the scene in his pickup vehicle.

The PRCC has since described Mr. Ahenkorah’s conduct as unfortunate.

Mr. Fiadomor said that the MP was invited to defend his actions but he failed to turn up at the General Assembly meeting.

One was slapped with two months and the other, three months.
