The Municipal Chief Executive for Keta in the Volta Region, Seth Yormenu, has come under question marks after he allegedly blew the Assembly’s money on a road contract that never existed.
In a development that has left the MCE smelly with suspicion, Mr. Yormenu allegedly doled out a whopping Ghc48, 980 to a road construction company called Zomef Enterprise for no work done.
Supposedly, Zomef was to rehabilitate feeder roads that connect Anyako to Abolove. However, after allegedly being paid the contract sum in 2017, the contractors never stepped foot on site.
What is even interesting is that the ghc48,980 contract to rehabilitate the Anyako-Abolove feeder roads, supposedly under the Assembly’s feeder roads development project, was said to have not been captured in the Assembly’s budget for the period the contract was allegedly given out – 2017.
Insiders who have spoken to What’sUp News point out that the extra-budgetary spending violates the law – specifically, Section 170(1&2) of Act 936 (2016).
What’sUp News has since contacted the MCE for response and explanation but Mr. Seth Yormenu has not been forthcoming. He has refused to pick calls placed to his phone and has also intentionally tip-toed around the issue in conversations on What’sUp.
In response to a direct request to confirm the veracity of he paying Zomef Enterprise the money for no work done, for instance, the MCE demanded to know who the source of any documents What’sUp News has on the issue.
The demand to reveal our source was part of hanky-panky that Seth Yormenu had played with What’sUp News as part of an intentional game to deliberately hang questions between our reporter and himself.
Meanwhile, rumors are swell in town that Zomef Enterprise is a company owned by a regime amigo.
