Lawmaker and business magnate, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed that he sacked his own son three times from his role as director of Ken City Media.
The brash politician, known widely for raining insults at his political opponents and anyone who steps on his toes, said he did that to equip his son with more wisdom, so he’ll be in a better position to take after his companies when he’s no more.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) said despite his fortune, he does not pamper his children and makes them understand that he has worked for all he has, and they have to do the same.
“If you want your children to learn, when you are giving them monies complain bitterly, let them know that you didn’t get the money on a silver platter,” he told Asempa FM in an interview.
Kennedy Agyapong was in the news recently when he went berserk on the management of Kumasi-based Ash FM, one of the many companies that he owns.
According to him, the workers of his station lack professionalism and don’t stick to the ethics of the job while discharging their duties. He further added that he won’t hesitate closing down the station and sacking them all.
In his typical boisterous fashion, he thundered;
“Let’s come home, Ash FM got me very sad this weekend. The next time I go to Kumasi I will close the radio station; I will sack everyone. It is filled with typical villagers. Let me tell you why I say they are villagers who are disgracing Ashantis.”
