‘It beats my mind how someone could stash so much money in their room’ – Ga Mantse on Cecilia Dapaah’s saga

King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, the Ga Mantse, has criticized the government for its failure to combat corruption.

Reacting to the former Minister of Sanitation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah’s cash-at-home saga, the traditional ruler expressed his disappointment at the persistent issue of corruption across successive governments.

He insisted that the government must find a way to address this problem.

“It beats my mind how someone who says they love this country so much could stash so much money in their room.

“Corruption is everywhere. I believe that the government must find a way to stamp its authority on corruption,” he told Citi FM in an exclusive interview.

Background:

The OSP closed its case against the former minister and her husband, Daniel Osei Kufuor, who were accused of corruption and corruption-related offences after two of their house helps allegedly stole $1 million and €300,000 in cash, along with other valuable items from their residence in Abelemkpe.

The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, concluded that his office lacked the authority to prosecute or take further action against the former minister and referred the case to EOCO.

The referral was based on the suspicion that the large sums of money found at Cecilia Dapaah’s properties and bank accounts could be the proceeds of a money laundering and structuring scheme.

The Attorney General, Godfred Dame, in advice to the EOCO boss wrote: “The OSP’s referral to EOCO for investigations to be conducted into money laundering is without basis.”
