Turkish Contractors Arrested in Ghana

Greetings Everyone,

I saw some great news earlier today and felt like sharing. The following information comes out of All Africa.

An illegal drain that was constructed near the Association International School at Airport Residential Area in Accra, Ghana, was demolished. Built by a Turkish construction company, KASS + F, the concrete drain was 50 meters long and it damaged portions of the road. The Ministry of Roads and Highways’ Mr. Kwesi Amoako Atta and officials stormed the scene after public outcry, ordering the arrest of three Turkish nationals and a Ghanian on site. He ended all activities at the site and directed the Department of Urban Roads to submit the cost of damage to the road and prosecute the perpetrators.

Mr. Amoako Atta advised that the government would not tolerate such irresponsible behavior from foreign nationals and no big man in Ghana would approve of the destruction of its national asset.

In a previous post, I stressed the importance of developing a Code of Conduct. And this was a perfect example: hear the outcry from your community and take action.
