Former LEKMA MCE Fights Over GYEEDA Sewing Machines


The former Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Chief Executive, Damiel Amartey is currently under investigation at the Kpeshie Divisional Police headquarters for his alleged involvement in an impounded KIA vehicle carrying over 135 sewing machines suspected to belong to Ghana Youth Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA).

The vehicle was sited loading off the machines from the residence of the former MCE and later off loaded in one assembly man’s house.

The matter was reported to the police station for investigations.

Meanwhile, Daniel Amartey Mensah has denied allegations that he has conspired with some members of the assembly to sell the 135 sewing machines which is supposed to be given to beneficiaries of GYEEDA under the dress making module.

According to Mr Amartey, some GYEEDA officials in the area consulted him when he was serving as the MCE to assist beneficiaries with a safe place to keep their sewing machines since there was no occupying space at the assembly.

He explained that he authorized some officials from GYEEDA to come for the machines when his term in office ended.

Speaking exclusively to Pravda News, Mr Amartey Mensah confirmed that the machines do not belong to the assembly but GYEEDA.

Some GYEEDA officials at LEKMA have however attested to the fact that the former MCE released all the machines for them when he was leaving office and so there is no way he could have conspire with any of their members to sell the machines.

The Deputy Coordinator for GYEEDA at LEKMA, Frank Nii Dua said the initiative was to support young men and women who have completed apprenticeship training and graduated in dressmaking, and encourage them to start their own small businesses and to create employment opportunities in their areas.

Meanwhile the current MCE of LEKMA, Nii Badu Tawiah Ashitey has been mentioned in the issue that he called for the arrest of some two GYEDA officials in the area.
