- The internet services providers of Midland Savings and Loans have absolved themselves from the viral issue at hand
- According to the service provider their service to the financial institution was not interrupted in anyway
- A few days ago, a policeman assaulted a nursing mother in one of the banking halls of the financial institution
K-NET, the telecommunications company which provides service to Midland Savings and Loans Company, has issued a statement saying they cannot be blamed for the act of brutality meted out to a nursing mother at the Shiashie branch of the institution.
A statement issued by the management of the company and sighted by YEN.com.gh on Adomonline.com, said claims by the owner of the Savings and Loans that their backup service from K-NET was not fast enough does not represent the true state of affairs.
The financial institution in earlier reports are purported to have blamed the ‘go slow’ of transaction on poor network from their services providers. However, the ISP has refuted the claims.
A few days ago, social media went into a frenzy over a very worrying video involving a policeman assaulting a nursing mother carrying her baby.
The video received a lot of condemnation on social media with the masses calling for the head of the policeman in the video.
Not long after the video went viral, many government bodies and individual condemned the act resulting in the immediate arrest of the policeman.
Reports have it that the matter is being handled by the top hierarchy of the Ghana Police Service.
The lady in the video, has had her life transformed after the incident owing to the fact that many Ghanaians have dug deep into their pockets to support her financially.
Recent checks conducted indicate that she has already received cash donations to the tune of GHc 40,000 already.

STATEMENT BY K-NET ON OUR SUPPOSED INVOLVEMENT IN THE POOR SERVICE QUALITY RENDERED BY MIDLAND
We notice with concern, reports making rounds on social media and some mainstream media that are attributed to the Owner of Midland Savings and Loans which sought to blame the recent happening at his company’s outfit on K-NET who are the backup internet service providers to Midland.
The Owner of Midland has, in those reports suggested that “our backup service, K-NET was not fast enough so this caused delays throughout our branches”.
We wish to state unequivocally that the Owner’s position was wrong and does not represent the true state of affairs as regard K-NET’s dealings with Midland. We make these interventions on the following grounds:
1. That K-NET as a Telecoms service provider has clearly laid out reporting systems for “downtime” and “poor service” reporting. These include the use of e-mails, WhatsApp and phone calls to our 24Hr/7 Days a Week Call and Monitoring Centre. In this case, our reporting records show that Midland has, at no point reported any issues of downtime or poor service (slow internet speed) to K-NET. Our live monitoring did not indicate a downtime or slow connectivity of service to Midland.
2. If the media reports and accounts of the assaulted lady at the Midland premises is anything to go by, it will mean that the problems with the backup service as suggested by the Owner would have taken 72 hours or more and would have warranted some reporting through any of our channels.
3. That K-NET, as was confirmed by the Owner of Midland, is a backup internet service provider. It is indeed, farfetched to blame the incident that allegedly occurred on the premises of Midland, on a service provider.
4. That most importantly, K-NET has taken the trouble, since the emergence of these reports, to do an audit of the system and have not identified any faults or challenges with service to Midland, especially over the time span within which the incidence at Midland is said to have taken place.
We, therefore, wish to place on record that be it a connectivity issue or any other problem that may have hampered the delivery of service by Midland, K-NET as a backup service provider had absolutely no contributions to same.
We, however, sympathise with Midland for the challenges they have gone through as a business in the last few days. We also sympathise with the Customer who was assaulted and condemn, in no uncertain terms, the actions of the police officer in question.
K-NET remains committed to delivering quality service to its clients.
