Special prosecutor invites bribe-giving Juaben MCE nominee

The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, has invited the rejected Juaben municipal chief executive-nominee Alexander Sarfo Kantanka over corruption related offences.

The rejected nominee was seen in a viral video demanding a refund of his money from some assembly members.

“The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has commenced investigations into allegations of corruption and corruption related offences (especially corruption and intimidation in respect of a public election) in relation to your nomination and confirmation or otherwise as the MCE of Juaben Municipality in the Ashanti Region,” a statement signed by Agyebeng said.
“The OSP considers you a person necessary for the investigations. You are directed to attend, in person, the offices of the OSP on 9 November 2021,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, the MCE nominee is on a police enquiry bail having been arrested on Monday (1 November) over the video.

In a statement on Tuesday (2 November 2021), the police said “the arrest was in connection with a viral video of the nominee allegedly demanding a refund of some sums of money he had allegedly paid to assembly members to vote for his confirmation.”

Kantanka has since been bailed after his statement was taken.

Rejection

The assembly members of the Juaben Municipal Assembly for the second time on Monday rejected the president’s nominee for the metropolitan chief executive (MCE) position.

Alexander Sarfo Kantanka failed to obtain the two-thirds threshold needed to be confirmed as MCE for Juaben Municipal  Assembly in the Ashanti Region.
