Newly sworn-in Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwabre East, Francisca Oteng-Mensah, says although she is yet to receive her first salary, she has started paying school fees of some students in her constituency.

According to the MP, she is also laden with the payment of hospital bills among other demands her constituents have started making.

The situation, she noted, is becoming unbearable as more of her constituent have started making huge demands that are beyond her control.

“Even though I have not started receiving salary, I have started paying fees … I have also started paying hospital bills and a whole lot,” she was quoted as saying by myjoyfmonline.com on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.

Francisca, 24, is the youngest MP in the Seventh Parliament of the 4th Republic.

She unseated then MP for the area; Kofi Frimpong at the party’s primaries held in 2015 and subsequently went ahead to poll over 70,000 votes to retain the seat for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December 7th parliamentary elections.
