KUMASI MAYOR, Kojo Bonsu, has dragged two assemblymen of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly to court for allegedly denting his image.
The names of the two assembly members were given as Messrs Philip Addai of Kokoso in Kumasi and Maxwell Owusu Boakye.
Kojo Bonsu claimed that the duo wrongly accused him of financial malfeasance which had dented his hard-won image.
He said on Angel FM that he decided to haul the two assemblymen to court to clear his name, once and for all.
?They have tarnished my image and I want the truth to come out, that is why I proceeded to court,? he said.
Kojo Bonsu, who sounded peeved, stated that he would not withdraw the case, even if the two assemblymen apologized to him.
The Kumasi Mayor said he had suffered false allegations for some time now and wanted to clear his name in court.
Touching on other issues, he said the assembly generated colossal amounts of money in revenue generation daily in the months leading to last year?s Christmas festivities, when it took over the management of the Kejetia Bus Terminal.
Mr. Kojo Bonsu explained that proceeds at Kejetia had dropped lately, because business was not vibrant as it was during the yuletide.
He explained again that some of the driver unions that operated at Kejetia had been moved to areas in the city ?and this has affected proceeds at the terminal.?
Kojo Bonsu said he was enjoying his work as the Kumasi Mayor, despite some challenges.
?The work of the Kumasi Mayor comes with a challenge, but I am still enjoying it very much,? he remarked.
He said despite the challenges, he was still focused saying, ?I am here to develop Kumasi.?
