Accounts officer at KATH who claimed COVID-19 funds are being used to purchase luxurious cars sacked

The disciplinary committee of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) Board has suspended the accounts officer Mr Awuni Akyireba over an allegation he made that Covid-19 donations to KATH had been used to buy luxury vehicles.

Mr. Awuni Akyireba had accused the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) KATH, Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso, of misappropriating COVID-19 funds.

But the committee said this allegation is baseless and total falsehood.

“By choosing to go to media on matters with KATH without authority renders you guilty of a major misconduct under the disciplinary code of KATH Section 13:0 XII,” it said.
