EXPOSÉ: Gov’t paying US$5K monthly rent for 21 judges relocated after Cathedral site demolition

The government of Ghana is currently spending an amount of US$5,000 every month to house some 21 judges in semi and full-luxury three, four-bedroom apartments in Accra after the demolition of their bungalow residences to pave way for the National Cathedral project.

According to documents intercepted by, since July 2018, the government has been spending an amount of 5000 United States Dollars on each of the 21 judges whose bungalows were demolished and had to be moved to new accommodation temporarily pending the building of a new structure. The government rented for them.

It will be recalled that ten six-bedroom, six three-bedroom and other ancillary bungalows some of which were less than a year old belonging to the Judicial Service of Ghana were demolished by the government to make way for the National Cathedral project in 2018.

After the demolition, rhe government said it was only “temporarily” accommodating the judges and had plans to build a new residence for them in 18 months.

However, as at the moment, report indicates approximately US$4.3million has so far been expended to “temporarily” accommodate the 21 judges at a monthly rate of US$5000 in luxury and mini-luxury apartments at Cantonments, Osu and Ridge areas.

While the government has started the construction of over twenty new bungalows on a different land in replacement for what it destroyed to make way for the cathedral, the project has been slow even after the 18 months the government promised to finish.

This comes after documents showed persons and companies affected by the Cathedral site demolition including Comsys Ltd, Waterstone Realty Limited among others have neither been relocated or compensated with judgement debt looming against the state.
