November 22, 2021 By 0 Comments

The management of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has reiterated its position that the cash donations for COVID-19 had been disbursed for their intended purpose of supporting clinical care.

It has assured all stakeholders, collaborators, and partners, who donated such funds, that all the relevant records and evidence were available for validation of its claims on the judicious use of the donations at the appropriate time and forum, as part of the processes for seeking redress for the unjustified attacks on its integrity.

Reacting to media reports that the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) had been petitioned to probe the use of COVID-19 cash donations by the hospital, Mr. Kwame Frimpong, Head of the Public Affairs Department of KATH, indicated that the management of the facility had not been formally served with any document or notice of process.

The KATH management, however, denies the allegation of misappropriation of COVID-19 Special Funds for the procurement of two cars, or any other unintended purposes.

The Head of KATH Public Affairs reiterated that the media reports were malicious, adding that the allegations were not true and made with the intention to destroy the reputation of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso, and director of the facility.
