Businesswoman seizes school vehicles over unpaid debt

Aggrey Memorial A.M.E Zion Senior High School in Cape Coast is in trouble as two of its vehicles have been seized by a businesswoman over the school’s failure to pay for food items supplied on credit.

The woman who owns Kanamis Enterprise and goes by the name Comfort Nkrumah supplied the school with food items worth over ¢257,000 in 2018, but only received part-payment, leaving over ¢100,000 outstanding. This resulted in her taking legal action against the school, which the court ruled in her favour, and ordered the school to pay the outstanding debt of ¢154,717.

However, the school has failed to honour the court’s order, leading to the seizure of a bus and a Mahindra pick-up truck belonging to the school. These vehicles are currently being kept at the premises of the Cape Coast District Court and will be handed over to an auctioneer in due course.

It is surprising that the school authorities have not made any efforts to contact the businesswoman to resolve the issue. The two vehicles have been at the premises of the Cape Coast District Court for over a week now, and the plan is to sell them to recover the debt owed.

Comfort Nkrumah’s company, Kanamis Enterprise, entered into a contract with the school in 2018 to supply food items on a credit basis, which the school has failed to pay for, causing her to take legal action. The court ruling means that the school must pay the outstanding debt, but the school has not honoured the court’s order, leading to the seizure of its vehicles.

This incident is a warning to other schools and institutions that do business on credit to honour their debts, as failure to do so may result in legal action and seizure of assets. The businesswoman’s actions should also serve as a reminder to schools to manage their finances properly and avoid accumulating debts that may affect their reputation and operations.
