The Foreign Affairs Minister, Hanna Tetteh has said her ministry will ?take up? the case of an injured Ghanaian Engineer who has been abandoned by Baker Hughes, an American oil and gas services company operating in Ghana and other African countries.
Andrew Boateng, who is an engineer with Baker Hughes Ghana, was on a rotational work in Congo and Gabon, where he was injured in a terrible accident in Gabon in the company?s vehicle on official duty on April 2014.
While in coma he was airlifted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa. He reportedly spent some weeks at the hospital after he regained consciousness and was initially moved to a nursing home and to another home for the aged called Serenity Home, also in Johannesburg.
Reports indicate that the company stopped catering for his needs after he was transferred to Serenity Home. An activist who did not want to be named reported that Andy had been lying in a poor hospital in South Africa and no family member has visited him for over a year now.
