- Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng plays two important roles in the country
- The experienced Ghanaian is the current Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation and a heart surgeon
- He runs shifts as a cabinet minister on weekdays and as a hospital staff on weekends
Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng has shown that even though he has matchless love for his country as a minister, he equally cannot forget his first love as a heart surgeon.
The astute Ghanaian is currently the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation under the Akufo-Addo-led government.
As a result of his position, he sees to the affairs of the nation normally from Monday to Friday which are considered as 'official working days'.
One would consider the honorable minister to take a good rest after his weekday work is over but anyone saying this, clearly does not know Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng.
Apart from his political life and work, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng is an active physician and cardiothoracic surgeon.
As a result, he goes to work on weekends but not in the capacity as a minister but in the full role as a heart surgeon.
During such weekends, the experienced surgeon goes to the theatre to save lives by performing hours of surgeries while standing on his feet.
He is able to perform both roles seamlessly and has had his achievements as a statesman and heart surgeon highlighted by many national and international media houses and outlets.
Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng established the National Cardiothoracic Center and the Ghana Red Cross Society.
He is also the President of the Ghana Heart Foundation and was the Chief Executive Officer of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
Meanwhile, the founder of the New Africa Foundation, Freedom Jacob Caesar, has donated a 2-Bedroom fully furnished home to 95-year-old Ghanaian WWII veteran, Private Joseph Hammond.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Zionfelix's Instagram page, Freedom Jacob Caesar was seen presenting the house to Private Joseph Hammond.
After receiving the house, Private Joseph Hammond indicated that Freedom's kind gesture was the biggest surprise he has received in his 95 years on earth.
