K’si Mayor Presents Dustbins To KATH

Less than 1 minute Minutes

KUMASI MAYOR, Sam Pyne on Thursday presented 50 dustbin containers to the Chief Executive Officer for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

The gesture by the Mayor and the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly is to ensure the hospital deals with the waste it collects at its compound.



Speaking to the media, Mr Pyne said he was aware of the volume of waste generated at KATH and decided to help with the bins supplied to them by the Local Government Ministry.

“I am aware of the volume of waste at Komfo Anokye and being a facility dear to my heart i decided to present these 50 pieces to them to manage the waste”,

Additional Support:

The Mayor said there were plans to support the facility with additional bins to deal with waste.

He said the Assembly would periodically assess the situations at KATH and other institutions in Kumasi and supply them when it takes delivery of some more of the bins.

The KMA, he stressed was currently distributing some of the bins to some selected senior schools and outfits in Kumasi.

“The KMA is committed to providing these bins to institutions and other state facilities to ensure they are able to deal with the waste they collect and in so doing help to make the city clean”, the Mayor stated.

KATH Chief Executive:

Chief Executive Officer for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Professor Otchere Addai-Mensah thanked the Mayor for the gesture.

He revealed that for eight months since he assumed office as CEO the Mayor had shown so much support to the hospital.

The donation of bins, he noted was therefore something that would help the facility to deal with waste.

“This donation of bins by the Mayor go to show the kind of heart he has for us and the commitment to ensure we work to deal with sanitation issues here and we are most grateful”, Professor Addai-Mensah stated.
