Following Cecilia Dapaah’s “missing money saga,” a well-known media figure named Nana Yaa Brefo has recalled certain instances in which certain government officials were exposed for trying to utilize state monies for their own benefit.
Conversations about Cecilia Dapaah’s missing $1 million, 300,000 euros, and 350,000 Ghana cedis have become increasingly heated in light of allegations that additional funds were discovered in her home following a thorough search.
This has sparked a range of reactions on social media, along with fury and inquiries about the source of such enormous sums of money.
Additionally, it has revived the debate surrounding the years-long, indiscriminate misappropriation of public monies by some politicians.
Nana Yaa Brefo, who also participated in the conversation, recounted occasions in which some parliamentarians were found in possession of assets and money that was thought to have come from public funding.
“Earlier, in this same Ghana, a certain politician stacked cash in his car booth, went to a washing bay to wash his car and his monies were stolen. In his case, he wasn’t able to report. In this same Ghana, a minister collapsed when his driver bolted with his money. Another went for a funeral and made some donation in dollars and euros. I heard that a former deputy minister built a filling station for his girlfriend and registered it in her name. It wasn’t for free but he intended to take back his property someday. He left the girl and married someone else and now he wanted the filling station back and she refused,” she stated on AngelFM.
However, the broadcaster found it regrettable that politicians engaged in such behavior at the expense of low-income individuals.
“We are suffering as citizens. We are sweating, working hard to make ends meet. We are still battling the covid after effect, Ukraine-Russia war, and so on, and this is happening?,” she added.
