He Is Critically Sick But Not Dead -NPP MP’s Family Insists
Ebenezer Kojo Kum, the Member of Parliament for Ahanta West Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is not deceased, according to a family member.
According to a family member, “it is true my brother was critically sick and we are still praying for him after being discharged from hospital and being treated home but he is not dead.”
This is in response to reports that the MP, who also serves as Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, is dead.
Rumors have been circulating that a by-election is on the way, which would have a significant impact on the makeup of the near-hanging Eighth Parliament.
Nana Mensah Kumah III of Turom, who describes himself as the Ahanta West MP’s senior brother, insists that the lawmaker is not dead in a WhatsApp audio message.
Speaking in Fante, he expressed his dissatisfaction with the death rumors that prompted the audio message.
He claims that if the minister of state had died, he would have been the first to know.
He requested prayers for Ahanta West MP, who has confirmed he is severely ill.
