Rejected Juaben MCE nominee chases assembly members for refund of bribe
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) nominee for Juaben Municipal Assembly, Mr Alex Sarfo Kantanka has been caught in a secretly recorded video demanding a refund of bribe he paid to some assembly after his confirmation was rejected.
In the video, he was seen angrily exchanging words with some assembly members while hurling insults and curses at them.
He told the assembly members to be ready to refund the money urgently.
Mr. Kantanka, failed to secure the two-thirds majority after he garnered just six out of the twenty-six votes cast in the first attempt.
He was reappointed by the President, but some Assembly members boycotted the first confirmation exercise on Friday, citing intimidation over the deployment of armed security officers.
Earlier in the day, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, was seen appealing to members of the Juaben Municipal Assembly to forget the past and vote for the President’s nominee. But that was not enough to convince the assembly members as they rejected the nominee for the second time.
