Juaben MCE Invited For Questioning By The Special Prosecutor Over Bribe Allegations.

The Special Prosecutor has invited the embattled Juaben Municipal Chief Executive nominee, Alex Sarfo- Kantanka, for questioning.

Kissi Agyebeng, in a letter dated November 2, said his outfit has commenced investigations into allegations of corruption and corruption-related offences against the nominee.

Mr Sarfo-Kantanka has failed on two occasions to get the nod from assembly members of the Juaben Municipal Assembly to become their MCE.

In a viral video on Monday, he is seen publicly demanding monies he supposedly gave to some of the 26 assembly members to influence his confirmation.

Mr Sarfo-Kantanka failed in his first attempt after he secured six votes assembly members out of a total of 26.

He failed again in his second attempt, polling only 10 votes.

He is said to have demanded a refund of monies paid to assembly members for his endorsement when he failed in his second attempt.

Sources say an amount of GH¢5,000 was allegedly paid to each of the 26 assembly members to influence them to vote in his favor.

But the assembly members rejected him outright for the second time, drawing anger.

It took police intervention to prevent supporters of the nominee from assaulting the Atwima Nwabiagya South MP, Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere and assembly members on November 1, 2021.

The nominee’s supporters massed up at the assembly grounds threatening to assault all assembly members locked up in that building.

The police had to whisk away the Regional Minister from mob assault.

Representative of the Ashanti Caucus of MPs, Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere, was, however, assaulted by the mob.

The nominee, around the same period, went into the assembly’s conference room to demand refund of money he allegedly paid to the assembly members.
