G Shankerdas & Sons Sierra Leone Ltd Refute False Media
The management of G Shankerdas & Sons Sierra Leone Limited, an internationally-acclaimed producer of beverage products, water tanks and other products in an interview with Sierra Express Media, reacted to false media publications relating to the death of a former employee, Patrick Sam, who died on Friday 3rd January, 2020 at the Connaught Hospital following an accident he had whilst on duty.
The publications published on various media outlets alleged that the death of the late worker was caused as a result of negligence on the part of the company which they say failed to take full responsibility after the accident had occurred. It is further alleged that the company only gave one million Leones to the late man for his hospital bills after the accident.
These allegations, according to management, are totally malicious, baseless and unfounded which aimed at tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of the company.
Reverend Sawyer, the Public Relations Officer of G Shankerdas & Sons in an interview, told this writer that indeed the late man was an employee of the company who was repairing a faulty tank in the residence of one of their customers when it exploded.
He said that the explosion left the late man with severe injuries that later resulted to his death at the Connaught hospital.
He clarified that the company did not only take full responsibility of the late man’s hospital bills at Connaught but also was in constant touch with his family throughout the period he was in hospital.
‘Members of staff were regular visitors at the Connaught hospital throughout his admission period’, Reverend Sawyer stated adding that the company did all what it could to save Patrick Sam’s life but God took him away.
‘Even the burial ceremony of the late man was fully taken care of by the company’, he added
Meanwhile, family members of Patrick Sam during an interview with this writer have also refuted the media claims saying that they wholeheartedly appreciated the efforts made by the company before and after the death of their son.
‘‘G Shankerdas did all it could to save our son’s life but God took him away which is no fault of the company because God Gives and Takes’’ family members maintained adding that it is preposterous for anyone to accuse the company of negligence.
