KATH doctors strike over eviction


KATH doctors strike over eviction

The doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti region are going on strike starting tomorrow, 13 March 2024, due to accommodation issues. Approximately 20 doctors and other health workers are at risk of being evicted from the bungalows they currently occupy in Danyame, which is located near the hospital.

The doctors received an eviction notice from a private developer, giving them one week to vacate the residential apartments. In response, the doctors held an emergency meeting today and decided to go on strike in order to find alternative accommodation.

Dr. Michael Leat, Chairman of the Komfo Anokye Doctors Association (KADA), stated that they will only return to work once they have secured housing. During the strike, they will only attend to patients currently admitted, with no new cases being accepted.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
