Majority leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has paid glowing tribute to the memory of late Senior Minister Joseph Henry Mensah who was popularly known as JH Mensah describing him as “brilliant, selfless and iconic politician”.

In a tribute read on the floor of Parliament, the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs said the deceased who was also former legislature was always more of a character than a person.

According to the Suame Member of Parliament, the late JH Mensah spoke truth to power, provided voice for generations and different in an indifferent world.

Mr JH Mensah was a generalist who knew not just a little but very much about every subject matter making him an astute and consummate debater on the floor of Parliament when he was an MP.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the late JH Mensah was a workaholic who worked himself overnight for God and country that inspired him to become what he was as Minority leader for eight years and now as Majority leader.

He thanked the late Senior Minister for all he did for him saying he was “a character of unknown intelligence, commitment, bravery, energy, endurance, humility, simplicity, and boundless integrity”
