Presidency yet to take a decision on ‘Tweaaa’ DCE- Deputy Minister

Deputy Local Government Minister, Emmanuel Kojo Agyekum says the ministry is currently awaiting response from the presidency on a report submitted on the conduct of the Ahafo-Ano South District Chief Executive (DCE).

Speaking on Joy News Tuesday, the Deputy Local Government Minister noted that the DCE,  Gabriel Barimah has apologised for his misconduct. He was embroiled in a verbal confrontation with an anonymous hospital employee in what has become known as ‘TWEEAAA’.

 In a video, which has gone viral on social media especially Facebook, Mr. Gabriel Barimah was seen arguing with an anonymous hospital worker, who chuckled during the presentation of his speech at a function held in honour of the director of the Mankraso hospital.

His behaviour was condemned by the public, prompting the ministry to conduct investigations into the matter.

Joy News’ Anny Osabutey revisits the incident and reports that the emergence of the  Tweaaa video has shot the DCE to fame. ‘T’-shirts with the inscription ‘Tweaaa…” is already out there in the market.

From the political trenches as an apostle of Jerry Rawlings’ cadre front, Mr Barimah soon rose through the ranks of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to become a DCE.

But his appointment was without controversy. He was twice rejected by delegates for having a bad temper but he promised to reform and as if by design, the very things critics complained about was put to the test during a program to honour the Director of the Mankraso hospital director.

A voice from the crowd chuckled and Mr. Barimah lost his cool. In anger he walked away from the programme venue, ranting and raving.

The Deputy Local Government Minister later told Joy News, the presidency has been notified about the misconduct of the DCE but a firm decision is yet to be taken.
