Raymond Dankwa was a deputy manager in the now-defunct Capital Bank. Despite the several job security promises that were made to employees, Raymond and a host others were axed by the new owners.
Mr Dankwa now makes a living by grilling meat at events. In a video sighted by GHPAGE.com, Raymond told Joy News’ Justice Baidoo that he also started the ‘RaD Kitchen’ where he supplies food to the staff of financial and other institutions.
“I am not the type of person who wants to be idle. So I find it very difficult to cope with the current situation now. Cooking has been one of my passion when growing up, so I started what we called the RaD kitchen, so I supply food to people at the financial institutions”. He said.
Capital Bank and UT Bank collapsed in August 2017 due to liquidity challenges and all their assets taken over by state-owned GCB Bank.
Five other banks have since gone down for similar reasons.
A year after the collapse of UT Bank and Capital Bank, some of their former employees are still struggling to make ends meet.
Several of them have still not received their benefits from the new owners.
