The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has cleared the embattled former Member of parliament for Nhyiaeso Constituency, Kennedy Kwasi Kankam, of alleged misapplication of the his share of the Common Fund.
Chief Executive Osei Assibey Antwi in an interview on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma explained to host of the show Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that “the allegations on the former Member of Parliament is neither here nor there because the issue is an internal affair and was not supposed to have gotten overboard to third parties, so there’s nothing illegal in what he did and even the Assembly has issued a communique in response to the numerous speculations that has potential to dip Kankam’s name in the mud”.
He further urged the public to disregard such allegations with the contempt it deserves as he explained “because of the mayorship race, some people would want to go to every extent to reduce people’s hard-earned legacy and reputation to the barest minimum”.
Vindicated Kankam, who was on the other side of the line, explained: “I know someone is really interested in tarnishing my name”.
“Just at the eleventh hour of the mayorship race they have come up with this document which is out of place, outmoded and doesn’t even reflect the connotations of the allegations put out there.”
He further called on all his followers and lovers not to be perturbed as he repeated, “The battle is still the Lord’s.”
The former Nhyiaeso MP has been allegedly indicted by a supposed Auditor General report for diverting a sum of GH¢500,000 withdrawn from the DACF to fund a loan scheme for some constituents.
