The helpless Andrew Boateng is an engineer with Baker Hughes Ghana but was doing rotational work in Congo and Gabon.

He was said to have been involved in a terrible accident in Gabon in the company's vehicle on official duty on April 2014 and was subsequently airlifted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa, whilst in coma.

Later, when he regained consciousness he reportedly spent a couple of weeks at the hospital and was first moved to a nursing home and finally to another home for the aged called Serenity Home, also in Johannesburg, when the company stopped catering for his needs.

Reports indicate that the company stopped catering for his needs after he was transferred to Serenity Home.

An activist who did not want to be named reported that Andy had been lying in a poor hospital in South Africa and no family member has visited him for over a year now.

But the complainant, Afia Schwarzenegger on social media stated that "Per the labour laws of this country...Baker Hughes were supposed to have reported the accident to the labour department...but once again due to their lack of respect of the laws of this land...gross disrespect on black people nothing of that sort was done."

In a letter from the labour department, she was expected to meet the authorities of Baker Hughes and the labour office over the fate of Andrew Boateng.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Affairs Minister, Hanna Tetteh has said her ministry will “take up” the case.

The Minister in a tweet on Monday October 12, indicated that Ghana’s mission has received a report on Andy’s situation and will intervene in his situation.
