MMT Workers Besiege Deputy MD’s Office


Some workers of the state-run transport company, Metro Mass Transit, Wednesday laid siege at the Kaneshie office of the Deputy Managing Director of the company.

They chanted war songs and hurled invectives at the embattled deputy MD,  John Awuku Dzuazah,  whose dismissal the workers have been demanding for weeks now.

Nhyira FM’s Ohmeng Tawiah reported that a Toyota Landcruiser vehicle of Mr. Dzuazah, with Registration No. GT 8192 X, had its tyres deflated by the irate workers.

Police had to whisk him away to safety.
Workers of Metro Mass Transit Ltd Monday staged a nationwide strike to demand the dismissal of the Deputy Managing Director and the Board Chair of the company.

The workers said Mr. Dzuazah and Osabarima Ansah Sasraku III, Board Chair, have played various roles in the recent disappearance of 12 Metro Mass buses.

According to the workers, if these two personalities continue to be at post at the public transportation company it is likely to collapse.

The aggrieved workers blocked the entrance of the Kumasi terminal, preventing buses from going out.

Chairman of the Senior Staff Association of the Metro Mass Transit, Delali Kuma, said although the inconvenience caused to passengers was unfortunate, the move was a “bitter pill” that had to be swallowed.

“We are not doing this to be insensitive to the passengers”, he added.
