Somalia President Exchanges Blows With Deputy At A Public Function (Video)

As we are mourning Barca defeat to Bayern. it was a drama between Somali President and his deputy as they exchange blows (Video)

In a rather unpopular turn of events, Somalia president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo and his deputy exchanged James Bond kind of blows to the point of wrestling to the ground. They were seated next and close to each other in what seemed like a press briefing.

They were holding hands as if there was something that both of them wanted to have before they stood up blowing each other blue and black. It took efforts of a handful of men to separate the two who were busy tearing each other apart.

This is a very rare occurrence to happen anywhere in the world. It is not only embarrassing but also a very bad example from the people who should be preaching peace and acting as good role models to the entire country.

They fought in public and in front of the cameras. The act can fuel dangerous divisions between the supporters of the president and those of his deputy. They should put their pride aside and apologize to their citizens to ensure that the country remains united.

MenzGold Brouhaha: How Ghana’s Delegation To Dubai Was Snubbed

Fresh information picked from the Herald Newspaper throws more light on why the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah was not handed over to the Ghanaian delegation who went to get him from Dubai.

According to the Newspaper the owner of Horizon Royal Diamonds, whom NAM1 scammed and goes by the name Daniel is a very powerful man with connections to the ruling family of Dubai, hence his disrespect to the Ghanaian delegation , who went all the way there, to bring back NAM1.

From what we gathered the Ghanaian delegation, could not meet Daniel in Dubai because the latter had traveled out of the country, and did not want to meet the delegation, thus, declaring his intention to make Nana Appaih “rot in Dubai cells”.

In a haste to give a different story, the delegation announced that NAM 1, will return to court in Dubai on February 2, 2019, which is a Saturday, whiles the courts in Dubai don’t work on Saturdays.

This in one way or the other suggests that the government, through the Police and Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is not telling the truth on what transpired in Dubai

Again, there are claims that Interpol is yet to capture NAM1 in its database as fugitive. This is because, the real reason why NAM 1 is in Dubai is known to many officials in the government, especially the Flagstaff House, traditional rulers, top lawyers, the senior police officers, EOCO and others.

Three senior officials at EOCO, were mentioned as holding vital information. They include the Executive Director, KK Amoah, one Bashiru and another by name Walter.

Lawyer Fred Frimpong, captured as the Board Chairman of Menzgold, was also mentioned, as having access to the puzzle, aside Adentunji Adewoye Olorunfemi alias Ade, as Charles Opoku-Darko alias “Chairman”.

An Angolan by name Rodrigues Jose Gomes Maria alias Zerka, is also mentioned to have taken part in the deal. He is identified as worker of Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC and got a share of the booty which is keeping NAM in the Dubai cell. He has since fled from his employers.

Daniel, is said to be a Palestinian based in Dubai, and had worked his way to the heart of the House of Maktoum, running businesses for the family. Based on this, he is able to have his way around many things including overwhelming access to the Dubai police.

The Herald is further told that while in Ghana, the delegation led by the Minister of State at National Security, Bryan Acheampong, was told that Nana Appiah, was not going to be released to them, however, the delegation decided to gamble mainly to prove to the customers of the Menzgold that the Akufo-Addo government was doing something about the matter.

Ahead of the trip to Dubai, Daniel, had snubbed Ghana’s ambassador to the United Arab Emirate (UAE), Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, by refusing to speak with him on the release of NAM1, who is needed to curl the wave of the protests sweeping across the country, due to the Menzgold saga.

Insiders also told this paper that, Daniel, is technically holding NAM1 to ransom, hoping to get gold from him before he would let him leave Dubai.

This is because, Daniel, believes NAM 1, has gold in Ghana and keeping him in Dubai, will eventually force him to fly the gold to Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC and gain his freedom.

The delegation that returned home last Friday, got the Ghana Police Service and EOCO saying that the embattled Menzgold CEO, will only be available in Ghana, upon final determination of his case in Dubai brought against him by Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC.

NAM1 is facing charges of misdemeanour in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a statement jointly signed by the police and EOCO has said.

According to the statement, NAM 1, would be made available to authorities in Ghana, pending the outcome of the case in Dubai.

The statement went on to indicate that the embattled CEO, has cooperated with authorities that went to visit him in Dubai and has given them an extensive statement to assist in their investigations into the Menzgold saga for the requisite action to be taken.

The statement was jointly signed by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) David Eklu, the Director-General of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service and Mr Abu Issah, acting Head of the Legal and Prosecution outfit of EOCO, and copied to the Ghana News Agency.

“Mr Mensah was cooperating with EOCO as part of its investigations into a possible breach of Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institution Act, 2016, (Act 930) as reported to it by the Bank of Ghana (BoG).

“Upon the breakdown of cooperation, EOCO employed other strategies, including the use of associates and collaborating with other security agencies to make him available for further investigations”.

It said, the Emirati authorities employed similar methods in getting Mr Appiah Mensah to visit the UAE where, he was, subsequently, apprehended.

According to the statement, the delegation from Ghana went to Dubai to determine the nature of the legal processes against the accused person in the UAE and work on extradition processes to get him back to Ghana.

He is due to return to court in Dubai on February 2, 2019. Interestingly, this day is a Saturday, and the courts in Dubai don’t work on Saturday.

Menzgold Prepares ‘Comprehensive Final Payment Plan’ To Settle Customers

Menzgold Ghana Limited has given the clearest indication yet that it is meeting all stakeholders in order to agree on a payment plan to have all customers settled once and for all.

The Acting Communications Director of the gold-trading firm told TV3’s Ebenezer Agyekum in an interview on Wednesday that the schedule being drafted is expected to have all customers settled.

Nii Armah Amarteifio indicated, however, that only principals will be paid, just as was agreed at a meeting with customers in 2018.

“We can’t pay extra values,” he pointed out.

Events after the shutdown of Menzgold Ghana Limited in September, 2018 have led to the court issuing a bench warrant for the arrest of all directors of the company, in the name of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Customers have staged separate demonstrations across the country, demanding payment of their deposits.

Mr Amarteifio revealed that the behind-the-scenes engagement with stakeholders involves the board of the company.

“Immediately we are done, then we will come out with the final payment schedule that will now spell out when we are going to pay our customers,” he noted.

He lamented the company’s inability to follow payment plans issued last year, blaming the situation on the challenges it went through.

Menzgold duly apologized to its customers, he observed.

Menzgold customers should forget about their money – Prophet Gaisie reveals

“That is why this time around we are taking our time [and] being extremely circumspect to come out with the final payment schedule.

“That is why we are engaging the stakeholders. That is why we are engaging the board to sit down to really come out with a comprehensive final payment plan.”

He noted that the company will not come out with any notice until the stakeholders are fully done with the engagement.

“This is something that we have promised to come out with [and] then we will follow it through so that we pay everybody till the end and then this problem will be solved.”

Supreme Court Issues Warrant For NAM 1’s Arrest

The police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has declared Nana Appiah Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer of the troubled gold dealership company, Menzgold, wanted.

Nana Appiah, also called NAM1, has been out of the country since September last year, following agitations by customers of his firm for a refund of their investments.

Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, Director-General of the CID, Police Headquarters issued the declaration for the arrest of Nana Appiah Mensah.

Worried customers of the company, said to have operated illegally while taking investments in ‘gold’ deposits, have been clamouring for the arrest of directors of the company and the immediate return of their investments.

A section of them, numbering about 500, on Tuesday demonstrated in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, to press home their demands for the intervention of authorities to redeem their monies.

Meanwhile multiple warrants have been issued by a circuit court in Accra for the arrest of Nana Appiah Mensah and a number of his associates.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Rose Tetteh, said to be wife of Nana Appiah Mensah, and his sister, Benedicta Appiah.

They all face charges of defrauding by false pretences.

The CID boss also said that the INTERPOL may be requested to effect the arrest of Nana Appiah Mensah wherever he is, if need be.

MENZGOLD: CID Boss On NAM1’s ‘Arrest

The Police Criminal Investigations Department says it has no case lodged against chief executive of Menzgold Ghana, Nana Appiah Mensah,  who is said to have fled Ghana in the midst of the firm’s crisis that is likely to cost thousands of customers their investment.

On the back of series of demonstrations to put pressure on government to intervene in the crisis, private legal practitioner Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko on Tuesday claimed Mr. Appiah Mensah was arrested but absconded.

“I understand the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, has breached his bail condition and absconded,” he said in a Facebook post but did not give further details as to when he was arrested and by who and how he was able to escape.

When contacted to establish the veracity of the claim by Mr. Otchere-Darko, Director of the Police CID, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, said as far as the Police were concerned, they have “never arrested or invited” Nana Appiah Mensah.

She said there is no complaint at the Police Headquarters as at Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

However, she told 3news.com that she is aware the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is investigating Mr. Apppiah Mensah who is said to be hiding in South Africa due to agitation by customers of his Menzgold who have been demanding for their investments.

Background

The Bank of Ghana in August last year issued a public notice that Menzgold Ghana Limited is not licensed and has no authority to engage in the solicitation, receipt of money or investments and the payment of dividends or returns to its clients which is captured in Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).

It also hinted of impending sanctions, saying after several cautions to Menzgold, it has started discussions with relevant regulatory authorities to sanction them for breaching the law.

Though Menzgold called the bluff of the central bank, it was forced to shut down in September 2018 by the SEC.

As part of the shutdown notice, the firm was ordered not to take new contracts (investments).

SEC claimed evaluation of Menzgold’s documentations show the company does not have the licences to trade in gold, and that, its operations are in breach of Act 929 “as well as a threat to unsuspecting and uninformed investors”.

The company has since been in tango with SEC as well as customers and investors who are demanding their returns and investments.

But when the issues appeared to have escalated due to pressure from the customers, Nana Appiah Mensah run to parliament with a petition to intervene so the company can resume operations and pay its customers.

The company pleaded with the House to particularly intervene in the impasse between it and the SEC, which the company claimed has caused delays in paying its customers interest on their investments.

The company claimed in the petition to the Finance Committee of Parliament that the complete shutdown of its gold collectible vault by SEC has “caused a lot of serious challenges for the company and its customers [both local and foreign]”.

Accordingly, the firm wants parliament to “intervene and help resolve this matter amicably”.

Owusu Bempah Responds To Attackers In A Grand Style

Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah has responded to the vandalization exercise that went on at his church premises yesterday by some angry Muslim youth.

Some angry Muslim youth with weapons attacked and vandalised the Odorkor branch of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International in Accra.

The attack on Owusu Bempah’s Church comes at the back of his 31st night death prophecies about the National Chief Imam, the Former President and the current Vice President.

The controversial prophet on the 31st December 2018, predicted that several prominent men, including the National Chief Imam, a Vice President of a Sitting President, an Ex-president and a Former First Lady, would die in the course of the year if nothing is done to avert it.

In reaction to the attack, Rev. Owusu Bempah took to his Facebook page and quoted from Matthew 16:18 which read
“…I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it”.

“Let’s pray for the church and let’s be strong as Christians,” he added.

The youth has however
threatened to deal with Owusu Bempah till he comes out to apologise for the ‘prophecies of doom’.
