His death occurred on Sunday evening, October 1, while he was receiving medical treatment in South Africa.
Reacting to the news, Mr Nartey George extended his condolences and those of his constituents to the bereaved family.
“On behalf of the National Democratic Congress, Ningo-Prampram Constituency, I wish to extend our profound condolences to the family of the late Honourable Enoch Teye Mensah. The late former Member of Parliament for our beloved constituency, who, until his demise, was a Member of the current Council of State served our Nation in several capacities for over four decades,” he wrote in a statement dated October 2, 2023.
The statement added, “We pray for the peaceful repose of his soul and strength for his family left behind.”
As a dedicated member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), E.T. Mensah served in various notable capacities, including Minister for Education, Minister of Youth and Sports, Mayor of Accra, and representative of the Council of State for the Greater Accra Region.
