Apparently irked by the vituperations and innuendoes hurled at her by Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Madam Ivy Heward-Mills has responded in an equal measure, cutting the legislator down to size.
Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is on record to have subtly impugned the integrity of the wife of his former colleague, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, who was brutally murdered by unknown assailants.
Mr Agyapong in his latest onslaught against investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has broadly created the impression that Anas was in some amorous relations with Madam Ivy Heward-Mills.
He challenged Anas to explain his “strong emotional bond” with the late MP’s wife, adding that, ‘I will expose him if fails to do so”.
But Madam Ivy Heward-Mills on Thursday took to her Facebook to address the speculations.

“Good morning, fellow parents; I greet you from a place of joy, peace, love and empathy,” She wrote.
The way we raise our sons and daughters is vital. If we teach our children values like “respect for self and others,” if we build their self-esteem and mold their characters into children who will become men and women of dignity and integrity, we would have raised a polite society in which some of the traits we observe in people of authority today would be absent”.
She continued, “Unfortunately, we live in a society where brutal uncontrollable losers with low self-esteem who yearn for attention, kick and rub their feet in the air like sixteen-year-old tantrum-throwers who inevitably become certified world class bullies as adults. These sort of adults potentially ends up in our homes as spouses, in our workplaces as “leaders” or followers, in public places we visit, etc.”
“We find that we are surrounded by bullies; cowards with little or no self-esteem who resort to abuse and the denigration of others to fuel their egos as they engage in their daily battles to desperately seek relevance in an overt never-ending “fight for power to shield their inadequacies by any means necessary” sort of facade; sometimes to deflect attention from facts they find abrasive. Woe betides us if these bullies have some money or influence!” Madam Ivy Heward-Mills added.
She adviced that, “When you encounter such bullies, especially when their pathetic selves decide to prey on you or use you as a weapon to fight lost causes, do not validate their existence or dignify them with any direct exchanges”.
“We live in a country with laws. The constitution never sleeps”. She wrote.
Let us mind how we raise our children after all, as William Wordsworth wrote in his 1807 poem “The Rainbow,” the “child is the father of the man.” Madam Ivy Heward-Mills emphasized.
She wished us all a beautiful fruitful day”
