A Guide To Corruption (4). President Mills Cannot and Will Not Do This!

Posted by Business in Ghana on September 28, 2009

You can read all about the Mabey and Johnson judgment from the leading websites on Ghana. Each carries the story and details what I said in an earlier breaking news alert of August 7th. At the time, I wrote about the impending implosion and chronicled the history of the Mabey and Johnson bribery of NDC executives in another Guide to Corruption. Since then we have waited patiently for September 25th and this is just the beginning. I will dare to suggest that President Mills will make a show of investigating the issues involved and former President JJ Rawlings will pretend that all this happened under his nose and he knew nothing of it, even though his senior cabinet ministers were in the thick of it, and so was his wife.

President Mills has allegedly asked the Attorney General Betty Mould Iddrissu to investigate the Mabey and Johnson case in Ghana and spare no one found guilty of the offences established by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office.

The sex was rough, says rape victim

Posted by Business in Ghana on August 14, 2009

THE 19-year-old seamstress apprentice who was allegedly raped in the full glare of horrified onlookers at Asafo, a Kumasi suburb, on the dawn of Wednesday July 29, 2009, yesterday gave a tearful narration of her ordeal to a packed Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court.

As she spoke, Eric Adjei Bawuah, the 28-year-old gym instructor also broke down and wept bitterly, with his wife looking on and the audience moaning.

The accused person was making his second appearance in court after he was remanded by the same court on Monday August 3, 2009.

A board of enquiry is being set up by the management of the 37 Military Hospital to investigate allegations of detention and torture of some commercial drivers and their mates by military guards at the hospital as punishment for traffic offences in front of the hospital.  “The board will determine the charges to be levelled against the culprits,” a source close to the hospital’s management told the Ghanaian Times yesterday.  This paper reported yesterday that for the past three weeks, recalcitrant drivers arrested by military guards for parking wrongly in front of the hospital or dropping off or picking passengers there, were allegedly detained in the hospital’s mortuary as punishment. The punishment also included cleaning and arranging corpses and mopping the mortuary floor.
