KATH Labour Unions kick against dismissal of CEO


Labour unions at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti Region are standing firm against a petition calling for the removal of their Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Prof. Otchere Addai-Mensah.

A private legal practitioner, Kwame Adofo who served as KATH’s legal counsel until December 31, 2023 has accused Prof. Addai-Mensah of financial impropriety and procurement violations, citing substantial evidence in a petition to President Akufo-Addo.

However, the unions issued a joint statement dismissing these allegations as groundless and riddled with inaccuracies.

They praised the CEO’s dedication and positive impact on the hospital since his appointment.

“We recognize that the allegation against the CEO does not define his character and dedication to the well-being and development of the hospital. We witness what Professor Addai Mensah has achieved since he was appointed as CEO of KATH.

“We know his excellency, the president of the Republic, has his ears on the ground and knows the appointment of the CEO has positively impacted the hospital. We wish to put on record that we shall resist any attempt by any faceless individuals seeking to undermine the effects of the CEO because of parochial interest,” the group said.
The unions vowed to resist any attempts by anonymous individuals to undermine the CEO’s work, emphasizing their support for Prof. Addai-Mensah’s leadership amidst the controversy.
