Alan Kyeremateng Denies Selling Sugarcane Farm Meant For Komenda Sugar Factory



The Trade Ministry has dismissed allegations that the sector minister Mr Alan Kyerematen sold the Komenda Sugar Factory sugarcane farm to Akpeteshi distillers. The Ministry described the publication as false and one that is intended to create disaffection for the minister and the government. Ransford Chatman Vanni Amoah


who is a former member and secretary to the Komenda Sugar Project Management Board had made allegation to effect Kyerematen sold 125 acres of the Komenda Sugar Development Company farmland which was also meant to produce the raw material for the company to local sprit (Apketeshi) distillers. But a statement also



issued by the Chief Director of the Ministry of Trade and Industry on the Friday October 22 said the allegation is absolutely false and is maliciously intended to incite disaffection and also mistrust against the government, particularly the Minister. For the avoidance of doubt, the Ministry wishes to inform the general public that the



Minister has not and does not intend to sell any parcel of land belonging to the company. We all wish to state categorically that both the Minister and the Ministry do not have the legal capacity or the authority to initiate, negotiate and conclude the sale and transfer of any stool land assigned to the company, as falsely alleged in the publication. The statement assured the chiefs



and people of Komenda traditional area that the factory would be brought back to productive operations. The ministry takes this opportunity to assure the chiefs and people of the Komenda Traditional area that Komenda Sugar Factory would be brought back to the productive operation, as firmly reiterated by the President during his recent tour of the Central region.
