Government has clarified that it was not responsible for the expensive renovation of the Commissioner of Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice’s (CHRAJ) bungalow.
The CHRAJ boss has announced that she has moved to her official bungalow.
[contextly_sidebar id=”919PShGxgATyqaRklOAB4Wen9IyEf6tp”]In a statement issued to Citi News, Lauretta VivianLamptey said: “I wanted to let you know that I moved out of the hotel and into the official residence on Wednesday. This move was scheduled a week ago; before the Daily Graphic wrote about it.”
There have been speculations that government funded the renovation, but speaking on Eyewitness News, Deputy Minister of Water Works and Housing, Samson Ahi stated emphatically that his Ministry had no hand in Lauretta Lamptey’s bungalow renovation.
“The reason to renovate it was solely done by management of CHRAJ , we were not part of it …we are saying we had no hand in whether or not to renovate it,” Mr. Ahi said.
Mr. Ahi further clarified that the renovation of the bungalow was undertaken by the management of CHRAJ.
“From time to time, we do renovate government bungalow and in this case because management of the House is in the hands of CHRAJ we left it for them… If they had written to us that they had wanted to do the renovation, we would have asked our officials to do so and we would have given them the estimates etc but they took the decision to do it by themselves …
“ We have nothing to do with it but if CHRAJ had contacted the technical people to do the estimates and the procurement processes etc, we would have supported them or assisted them but they did not do so…,” Mr. Ahi explained.
