Vetting of newly appointed Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng is currently ongoing. He was appointed by President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo after Martin Amidu’s exit.
Mr Kissi Agyebeng who is in his early 40s has been praised for the experience he has acquired for himself over these years. Touching on corruption, the Special Prosecutor nominee noted that, he’s not in the position to stop corruption but he is rather coming onboard to make it a very ‘costly enterprise’
“I am not naive to assume that I am coming to stop corruption. There is no way I can stop corruption. God himself will not acclaim to that but I am going to make it very costly to engage in” Mr Kissi Agyebeng told the appointment committee.
He also explained that is it better that, he wears his own shoes
“honourable chair there was a reference to heavy shoes. To debate that, I’d prepare to wear my own shoes in a sense that I am my own man and I’m coming with my own experiences and professional training. in this quest , my conscience and learning of the law are going to be my guide”
He also revealed that, he’ll use Anas principle in his work as special prosecutor. According to him, the very day we scrap the office of the Special Prosecutor in Ghana will be the end of fight against corruption
“The day we scrap the Special prosecutor office, is the day we say goodbye to corruption so I am going to be independent in the discharge of my work and my loyalty is to the law and the republic of Ghana”
