In a brief remark by the mayor, he indicated that, over the years the day is marked with durbars at a select location in the metropolis.

However, that of 2023 he decided to choose KATH to personally interact with the victims and present these items for their benefits.

He cautioned motorist especially commercial drivers to adhere to road traffic regulations to safeguard themselves and others.

Again, with the Christmas festivities fast approaching a lot more people will troop to the Central Business District (CBD), that is double the already congested CBD hence motorist must be extra careful.

Receiving the items on behalf of KATH, the CEO Prof. Dr. Otchere Addai Mensah thanked the mayor, its development partners for choosing KATH to donate and visit patient in their time of need.

He, recounted the nice gesture of the Assembly not long ago when it presented waste bins to Hospital to help in the sanitation issues of the facility.

Prof. Addai Mensah called on other well-meaning Ghanaians to emulate this kind gesture.
