“I have seen with shock some news making rounds that there are no washrooms at the Kasoa district court. The Assembly together with the said court occupied a rented residential facility at Krispol city in Kasoa. When I took over, I realized the place was so congested. The assembly’s offices where so uncomfortable and even some officers including some heads of departments had no offices. The courtroom and offices were so small and the registerer operated from the kitchen of the rented residential facility. The judge’s office was without fan and very uncomfortable. The rent charge per month was GHC12,000.00.’
Speaking on starr News, Mr. Mensah disclosed that the Presiding Magistrate of Kasoa District Court has been transferred from Kasoa.
“I’m informed that she has been transferred from the area. She is no longer in the area. We know we have many problems to deal with at Kasoa and we need the courts but when I heard that incident I was shocked because it couldn’t have been true,” he said.
