Efutu Zongo Chief Exposes Afenyo-Markin: “I Did Not Write Any Letter”

The Chief of Efutu Zongo, Salaki Sulemana Salaga IV has denied authoring a letter expressing disappointment in the Vice Chancellor of the University of Education Winneba (UEW) for sanctioning some undue publications against the MP for Efutu, Hon. Afenyo-Markin.

Some sections of the media have carried the said letter purported to have come from the Chief that the conduct of Alhassan Salifu Bawa who is in-charge of Basic Education of the University of Education, Wineba (UEW) and who is said to be behind articles against the MP, was to malign the Member of Parliament (MP).

According to that letter, Salaki Sulemana Salaga IV’s was said to have stated that the conduct of the two, Rev. Fr. Anthony Afful Broni and Alhassan Salifu Bawa, are nothing short of attempts to cover-up corruption that is endemic within their ranks.

He claimed Alhassan Salifu Bawa was at his Palace pleading with him to talk to government officials to withdraw auditors from the Auditor General’s Department.

Salaki Sulemana Salaga IV was also stated to have mentioned in that letter that if Rev. Fr. Anthony Afful Broni and Bawa were clean and haven’t misappropriated state funds they wouldn’t be afraid of Audit.

Meanwhile, the Chief Salaki Sulemana Salaga IV in a voice message stated categorically that he knew nothing about the said letter.
According to him the said letter that was claimed to have come from him was the MP’s doing.

“I never wrote such a letter. I am taking this opportunity to tell Bawa and Rev. Fr. Anthony that I did not write that letter, neither do I know where it is coming from,” he said in Twi.

He however stated that he was mediating between the various factions at the University just to bring peace among them.

He said he dislikes what the MP is doing now, and recalled that the MP, Afenyo-Markin sometime ago, wrote to him that he (Afenyo-Markin) wanted to help them with the establishment of a Zongo Development Fund.

“So I responded to his letter…. And he said he was going to send letters to others areas including cocobod, ministry of education, water company to seek for help. I agreed because all will work for our good,” he said.

He said: “I need peace, and I want all of them to work together. I advised him to make peace with the others for us to all live and work towards growth in our area.”

He still stressed the fact that he did not write any letter as claimed by the MP and published in the media.
