It has emerged that two officials of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) are to appear before court over stealing charges.
The two, Kwame Asamoah Mensah, the Rattray Park Manager and Carlos Sakyi Ntow, IT Manager of the facility.
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service in Kumasi found the two culpable over a missing electronic gadget (software) at the Rattray Park.
They have therefore been charged for conspiracy to commit crime and stealing. They would therefore be hauled to the law court very soon to help unravel what led to the disappearance of the gadget.
The KMA boss, Osei Assibey Antwi, commenting on the issue, said the assembly had given its blessings to the police to prosecute anyone found culpable.
He was speaking during the General Meeting of the assembly on Monday, where pressing issues concerning the KMA were discussed.
The missing of the gadget has affected patronage of the facility since the dancing fountain is not functioning.
The two top officials of the facility were queried by the KMA when it emerged that the electronic gadget had been stolen.
Mr Osei Assibey told the general assembly that the KMA was determined to unravel what led to the loss of the gadget.
He therefore stated that the KMA would not interfere but would rather allow the police to work so the law would deal with the offenders.
He announced that other staffers at the Rattray Park had been withdrawn with immediate effect, following the alleged theft.
The popular leisure park at Kumasi, is slowly dying, as security agencies have been investigating theft of a USB drive containing operating software for the recreation facility’s dancing fountain.
The fountain which is the park’s major attraction has ceased working for over a month, and parts of its component have begun to rust away.
