Juaben rejected MCE nominee faces SP today Nov, 9
Two-time rejected Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) nominee for Juaben in the Ashanti Region Alex Sarfo Kantanka will on Tuesday, 9 November 2021 show up before the Special Prosecutor (SP) Kissi Agyebeng over alleged bribery.
This follows the initiation of investigations concerning “claims of corruption and bribery” against the rejected MCE nominee by the office of the Special Prosecutor.
The Special Prosecutor gave the Nominee Katanka the choice to show up under the watchful eye of his legal counsel.
A letter, endorsed by the Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng summoned Mr. Katanka to show up before him said: “The Office of Special Prosecutor thinks of you as an individual important for the investigation to unravel the truth.
Mr. Sarfo Kantanka was granted a self recognizance bail by the Police after his arrest on Monday, 1 November 2021 for supposedly paying off Assembly Members to affirm him as MCE for the municipality.
The rejected MCE was heard in a sound requesting the refund from the Assembly Members following monies he paid them to confirm him..
The nominee known in private life as Aluta was heard saying: “Everybody ought to prepare to give me my money so I can go. Dorothy, give me my cash. You should all give me a discount. Yeboah, give me my cash.”
The dismissed candidate further proceeded with that: “You don’t know me right? You all said I’m bad. You have taken my cash and you’re making trouble. I’ll take my cash.”
An assertion given by the Police and endorsed by its Public Affairs Director, Alexander Kwaku Obeng on Tuesday, 2 November 2021 showed that: “The capture was regarding a viral video of the candidate,” who was purportedly requesting a discount of the monies.
The assertion further proceeded with that: “After the investigation, caution statement was taken,” and Mr. Katanka was “without a doubt bail.”
The Assembly Members in the Juaben Municipality dismissed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s candidate for MCE.
The candidate couldn’t get 66% greater part out of the votes cast to turn into the MCE.
All out votes gathered by him was 6 out of the 26 in the first round of casting a ballot.
It’s against this background that the Juaben MCE nominee will appear before the SP for questioning.
