KATH CEO faces CHRAJ for ‘misapplying’ COVID-19 donations


A staffer at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi has dragged the CEO of the health facility to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) for allegedly misapplication of COVID funds.

Mr Awuni Akyireba, a chartered forensic accountant at the hospital alleges in his petition that two new Toyota Camry vehicles recently purchased for the CEO, Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso and a medical director for the facility, were allegedly procured with COVID-19 donations.

He further alleges that the medical director, Prof Baffour Kofi Opoku, gave one of the two luxury cars to his wife which later got crashed in an accident on August 23, 2021.

Akyireba described conduct of the medical officer as an “abuse of public office” as it turned out his wife is not a staff of KATH.

The petitioner has assured CHRAJ he is ready to provide the needed document and assistance to punish any wrongdoing and also sanitize the management system of the one of Ghana’s biggest referral center.

Dailymailgh.com understands a copy of the petition has been sent to the office of the Asantehene for further action.
