Waste management contractors threaten to sue KMA over GH¢2m debt

DebtA waste management company has threatened to drag the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to court over a GHȼ2 million unpaid for job done.

Messrs. Osborn Enterprise Limited was engaged by the assembly to collect waste from house-to-house in the Asawase sub-metropolitan area but had refused to pay the company for its services.

Madam Juliana Osei Bonsu, a Director of the Company, addressing a press conference in Kumasi, said the amount had been outstanding for 10 years.

She said an order by a High Court to the KMA, in August 2015, to pay them the money owed was yet to be complied with.

She said they were completely surprised at the reported claim by Mr. Alexander Ackon, the Ashanti Regional Minister, who is acting as the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), that the assembly had settled part of its indebtedness to waste managing contractors.

Madam Osei Bonsu said the claim had brought a lot of pressure on her company as their creditors were all over them.

She said if indeed the assembly was paying some waste management contractors, it was difficult to understand why they should be left out.

She indicated that her company secured an execution order from the court to attach properties of the assembly but had to hold on because of the intervention by some prominent personalities.

Madam Osei Bonsu said the assembly had not shown good faith and they could be heading to the court again.
