Government has secured employment for the late widow of Major Maxwell Mahama as part of ongoing efforts to fulfil promises made to the family in the wake of the murder of their son.
Defence minister Dominic Nitiwul revealed in an interview with StarrNews today that Parliament is working on a bill to concretize the benefits promised to the late Major’s family.
“Government promised when he was murdered that we would establish a trust fund for him as part of the four things we originally agreed to establish. So we have been working to ensure that we get that bill established.” Nitiwul said.
“We went to cabinet and cabinet approved of it, we took it to the Gazette, it’s been done and today it’s in Parliament. So it’s a bill that the President will assent to it after Parliament has done its job. The objective of the fund is to cater for the welfare of the family of the late military officer. And we are hoping by the end of the month Parliament works on it for it to be passed,” he added.
Nitiwul also said the government has secured gainful employment for Mrs Barbara Mahama.
