Report convened has it that the sitting Member of Parliament for the Jaman North Constituency Hon. Ahenkwah Yaw Frederick’s mother is dead.
Her death comes 6 years after she lost her husband and regent of Sampa Traditional Council ‘Master Kwame’.
The old woman who is in her late sixties identified as Auntie Mary a popular trader at Sampa and its environs known best in dealing with yams at Sampa market.
Auntie Mary succumbed to short ailments recently while receiving treatment at Sampa Government Hospital, unfortunately, passed on in the late hours of yesterday Monday.
This has come as a big blow to the MP as the only surviving parents who fought tirelessly to have seen her son snatching the seat from the former MP Hon. Siaka Stevens, only three and half months of assuming office and a time to have enjoyed the fruit of her, she has just embarked on a journey of no returns, so sad.
This has thrown the residents of Jaman North more especially NDC sympathizers into a state of mourning.
I remember having an encounter with her over some tuber yams I bought, 3 days later I realized one got rotten, then decided to take back for a replacement. After changing it for me, she ironically said; “I will also carry it to the farmer for replacement”.
She will forever be remembered by all the market women at Sampa with her sense of humour.
