Uncompleted KATH maternity block risked collapse
Widespread cracks with rusted iron rods and weak pillars holding the 44-year-old maternity and children's block of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital could have led to the facility's collapse according to consultants and contractors in charge of the redevelopment of the facility. During a tour of the facility with journalists, Emmanuel Asabre, the Project Manager at Arckito Consult, the Consultancy Firm in charge of the project, attributed the deterioration of the building to its exposure to weather. "It has been raining, so you see that it keeps going through the whole building and the whole building is exposed. One portion of the building begins to rust, and it spreads through the whole place."
