The Office of the Special Prosecutor has charged the failed nominee for the position of Chief Executive of Juaben Municipal Assembly, Alexander Kwabena Sarfo-Kantanka with Twenty-Six (26) counts of corruption.
In November 2021, the Juaben MCE nominee went berser after he was rejected by assembly members at the end of an exercise for his confirmation.
He was captured in a secretly filmed video, demanding a refund of the bribe money he allegedly paid to some assembly members.
According to the Special Prosecutor’s findings, Mr. Sarfo-Kantanka gifted the elected members of the Assembly GH¢5,000 each.
He is said to have also gifted the Government appointed members GHS2,500 each to influence their conduct in the performance of their duty as voters.
After looking into the matter, the Special Prosecutor has charged and processed Alexander Sarfo-Kantanka for court.
In a press release signed by Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng, it has been announced that the embattled MCE is facing 26 counts of corruption.
“The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has charged the nominee for the position of Chief Executive of Juaben Municipal Assembly, Alexander Kwabena Sarfo-Kantanka with Twenty-Six (26) counts of corruption in respect of a public election - arising out of two public elections conducted in September and November 2021 for the confirmation or otherwise of his nomination,” parts of the Special Prosecutor press release reads.
"Mr. Sarfo-Kantanka will be arraigned before the High Court (Criminal Division), Kumasi on Wednesday, June 1, 2022."
