The Chief Justice, His Lordship Justice Anin Yeboah on May 18th 2023 inaugurated the first ever court to be built in the Kpone-Katamanso Municipality. The court was funded through the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) and is part of projects by the government to build 120 courts and 150 bungalows for the judiciary throughout the country.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon Samuel Okoe Amanquah in his welcome address expressed his profound gratitude on behalf of the people of Kpone-Katamanso to the chief of Gbetsile and Divisional council for giving land free of charge for the building of the court. He appealed to other well-meaning individuals and companies to emulate such worthy gesture by investing in useful projects that will benefit the entire community. Hon. Amanquah noted that the court will handle cases within the Municipality and its surrounding communities and ultimately help to enhance justice delivery in order to bring relief to the people in the Kpone-Katamanso Municipality and beyond.

The Chief of Gbetsile, Nii Teye Kojo Amanquah Sune I in his remarks expressed his gratitude to officials of Kpone-Katamanso Municipal Assembly and the Government for their immense support towards making the project come to fruition. He pleaded with the Government to construct the deplorable roads within the Municipality.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon Henry Quartey for his part said he was excited to be part of such historic and memorable event. He admonished the Traditional authorities and the general public to patronize the courts and desist from settling cases that have to be properly adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction. He also asked the judicial service to collaborate with the Municipal Assembly to ensure strict enforcement of sanitation bye-laws to help facilitate the “Operation Clean Your Front” campaign by the Greater Accra Coordinating Council.

The Chief Justice of the Republic, Justice Anim Yeboah in his inaugural speech expressed appreciation to the Kpone-Katamanso Municipal Assembly and all stakeholders, including the Gbetsile Traditional Council, for their contributions to addressing the challenges of access to justice in the Municipality. He added that the facility would not only ensure access to justice but also attract businesses and investors to the Municipality. Justice Anin urged the judicial service staff who would be manning the court to exhibit a high sense of professionalism in the delivery of their mandate.
