Kwame Kyei Appenteng Mensah, 65, the Managing Director of Sunet Industries, producers of Le Country Mineral Water, has been brutally murdered by unknown assassins. Mr. Appenteng Mensah, son of the late industrialist, C.S. Appenteng of Panbros Salt fame, was reportedly stabbed at the back of his neck at his McCarthy Hills residence in Accra on Friday.

The latest killing has raised the state of insecurity in the country to another level, with armed robbers and hired killers or what President Atta Mills described as ‘contract killers’, on the loose. According to the Deputy Accra Regional Police Commander, ACP Christian Yohuno Tetteh, the MD was found dead at about 9:00am on Saturday July 25, 2009 in his apartment.He said on that fateful day, his house help whose name was not disclosed, got alarmed that her boss, who apparently woke up very early and relaxed on the compound, was not seen.

She therefore informed members of the family who also lived in separate apartments on the same compound. The family members knocked on his door several times and getting no response, they tried fruitlessly to break the door.They then had to use a ladder to pass through the window after breaking the louvre blades.

When they entered the room, they found the victim lying face down in a pool of blood with a deep cut on his neck, in a manner suggesting premeditated murder. The house help, according to the police boss, heard her boss scream at about 12:00 midnight.
The 65-year-old man, who was the former MD of Panbros Salt Limited, was suspected to have been murdered with a sharp instrument. Early investigations indicated there was no break-in in the house or his bedroom, but the door was locked and his keys and cell phones taken away by the killers. Speaking to Daily Guide, a close family friend said the deceased came home at about 10:30pm on Friday night. He informed his house help not to lock the gate because he was expecting a visitor. The Police are investigating the matter while the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
