The President’s Municipal Chief Executive nominee for Juaben in the Ashanti Region, Alex Safo Kantanka, will later this week face the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, as investigations commence into allegations of bribery and corruption against him.

On Monday November 2, 2021, assembly members of Juaben gathered for the second time to confirm the President’s nominee, Alex Safo Kantanka, after the first attempt failed.

However, the nominee failed to obtain the required number votes for confirmation.

Following his rejection, the nominee was captured in a video demanding from some assembly members monies he was alleged to have given in return for their votes.

He was subsequently picked up by the Police for questioning after the video went viral.

The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng also served the MCE nominee summons to appear before him for questioning on Tuesday November 9.

He was given an option to attend with a lawyer.

Mr. Agyebeng in the letter further indicated that his office “has commenced investigations into allegations of corruption and corruption-related offences (especially corruption and intimidation in respect of a public election) particularly in relation to your  Alex Sarfo Kantanka’s nomination and confirmation or otherwise as the Municipal Chief Executive of Juaben Municipality in the Ashanti Region.”
