The Secretariat for Special Development Initiatives has disputed that a number of government ambulances stationed at the Tafo Government Hospital had been abandoned.
The ambulances purchased as part of the 1-Constituency 1-Ambulance project have remained at the hospital for some time and have been extensively reported as vehicles that have been allowed to rot by local media, notably Silver FM.
