Zoomlion hits hard at Manasseh Azure over false claims

Management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited said it had not been contracted by VRA to undertake any fumigation activities in the lower Volta areas affected by the recent controlled spillage from the Akosombo Dam.

Its response is against some publications engineered by Manasseh Azure Awuni, who, according to the Company, has for the past 10 years sought to level various allegations against Zoomlion to no avail.

“This recent publication is a demonstration of Manasseh’s clear disregard for journalistic integrity and professional ethics as is expected of a person of his caliber,” the company stated.

According to Zoomlion Ghana Limited, the reports dubbed “Ibrahim Mahama, Zoomlion, and Serious Questions for VRA,”, are misleading, false, and unfounded assertions by Manasseh Azure Awuni.

It said: “We want to emphasize that VRA has not contracted Zoomlion to undertake any fumigation activities in the said affected areas, as claimed by Mr. Awuni. His allegations are baseless and lack any factual basis. It is disheartening that in his pursuit of sensationalism and cheap popularity, Mr. Awuni has chosen to misrepresent the facts.”

The company also indicated that on Monday 23rd October 2023, Zoomlion Ghana Limited led by its Executives and Management presented several relief items worth over 500,000 cedis to the victims of the spillage.

Additionally, a sister company, Ecozoil also donated almost 500 life jackets to the media and rescue team supporting the situation on the ground. At the same presentation event, the company in addition to the items presented announced its intention also to fumigate the areas once the water had receded and expressed regrets that Mr. Awuni has chosen to overlook these notable humanitarian efforts undertaken by Zoomlion and its sister companies in support of the flood victims.

“A gesture which was widely covered by various media outlets, yet Mr. Awuni chose to disregard these facts propagate misleading information, and peddle his usual falsehood against the one company that has been at the forefront of keeping Ghana clean, green, and healthy, and this is deeply concerning,” it said.

Management of the company however challenged Mr. Awuni to provide evidence to substantiate his claims and allegations regarding the alleged contract awarded to our company.

“We remain unwavering in our commitment to upholding our corporate social responsibility and providing steadfast support to the communities in the Volta Region and other ways to our mother Ghana, despite the unwarranted distractions caused by such baseless accusations.

We want to reassure all stakeholders that our dedication to serving and uplifting communities remains resolute, and we will continue to prioritize the well-being and support of those in need, irrespective of such false allegations.”
