In Other Countries, Multiple Investigations Would Have Been Launched Into Mortuary Story – Prof Kwaku Azar Reacts

In other Countries, multiple investigations would have been launched into Mortuary story – Prof Kwaku Azar reacts

US-based legal practitioner, Kwaku Azar, has called for swift investigations into a documentary that recounts unsanitary conditions at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital mortuary.

Known in private life as Prof Stephen Kwaku Asare, the outspoken lawyer took to Facebook to criticise the lack of firm actions by the state authorities since the documentary aired.

In his view, top officials of Ghana’s biggest teaching hospital should have been interdicted over the terrible conditions at the mortuary.

“In other countries, multiple investigations would have been launched and several people should already have been interdicted following that mortuary documentary. But not in Ghana!”

he posted on Wednesday, May 4, 2022.

His post follows a documentary by GHOne TV’s Godwin Asediba that unravelled dreadful working conditions at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital mortuary.

The video of his report, which went viral, showed human remains being kept in a deplorable state at the facility.

The disturbing video also reveals dead bodies leaking leachate into dirty gutters with flies hovering all around.

Madam Florence, the director of metro-public health at the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, described the situation as a worrying reality, adding that the workers at the mortuary are exposed to a high risk of infections due to the conditions and yet receive little remunerations.
