The Ghana Physician Assistants Association has begun a sit-down strike in protest to the detention of one of their colleagues, Simon Takrama, one of two officers arrested in connection with the death of four persons at the New Senchi Health Centre in the Asuagyaman District.

The four died after they were injected with contaminated peninsoline.

The Somanya Magistrate’s Court remanded Mr Tarkrama, 42, and one James Yeboah, a 65-year-old retired field technician at New Senchi Health Centre (Disease Control Unit) in connection with the incident.

But the Ghana Physician Assistants Association maintains that Mr Tarkrama is innocent.

The Eastern regional branch of the association began the strike on Friday, 13 April 2018 and warned that the strike will be extended nationwide if their colleague was not set free.

On Monday, 16 April 2018, the Regional chairman of the Association, Philip Quasey, told Accra-based Citi FM that: “the strike is now nationwide.”
