Juaben MCE nominee bailed after arrest over alleged bribery

The two-time rejected MCE nominee for the Juaben Municipal Assembly, Alex Sarfo Kantanka has been granted bail after he was arrested by the police for allegedly bribing Assembly members to influence their vote in his favour.

Mr Kantanka was sighted in a viral video demanding a refund of monies paid to the assembly members for his endorsement.

Sources say an amount of ¢5,000 was allegedly paid to each of the 26 assembly members.

Police, however, opened investigations into the alleged bribery case to ascertain when the alleged bribe was paid to the Assembly members.
