KMA Not Cited For Breaches In Expenditures

Hon Sam Pyne, Kumasi Mayor.

The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has denied allegations carried in a newspaper publication, specifically in the middle pages of the Chronicle Newspaper on Wednesday, 5th of June 2024 that it has been cited for breaches in their expenditures.

The Assembly also parried off claims that it admitted to doing something untoward or contrary to what it had planned or budgeted for.

In a statement released to the media and signed by the Metro Finance Officer, David Adjei Abbam on Thursday, it said contrary to speculations in the content of the newspaper report, the issues raised by the Auditor General were only a query which was addressed to the Management of the Assembly.


The statement explained that the KMA was given 30 days to give responses to the query, noting that it has been complied with since.

The KMA statement emphasised that this is the usual practice with any audit.


The statement noted that KMA has already responded to the issues with the appropriate evidences to the Auditors.

It added that the Auditor General is yet to issue or release his final report on the issues raised in the Management letter as well as the KMA’s responses.

The statement intimated that until the Auditor General issues the final report, KMA and its management cannot be held accountable with the issues raised in the management letter. 

Furthermore, the KMA statement noted that until the final Auditor Generals’ Report is issued, it cannot be said that it has accepted any responsibility or has misapplied any funds as portrayed by the newspaper publication.
