Former Member of Parliament (MP), an aspirant for Ningo Prampram on the ticket of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kobby Mensah has raised allegation against Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, saying she forced her husband Jerry John Rawlings to not campaign for former President John Dramai Mahama in the 2016 general Elections.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, Kobby Mensah claimed Rawlings was unhappy in his own home and for the fact that he could not campaign for his own party.

He blamed Nana Konadu for influencing her husband and creating lots of problems for him.

“Former President Rawlings was going to start campaigning for the NDC in October. He was not happy about what was going on and he made his mind to campaign for John Mahama . . . he was prevented from campaigning. The woman in his life prevented him from campaigning for John Mahama,” he was quoted by peacefm online.

“The man was not happy at all for not campaigning for John Mahama and the NDC. He wanted to campaign but he was prevented by his wife . . . you know the mystery in marriage . . . Rawlings was facing a lot of problems with his wife because he loved the NDC and those who are closed to the man know this fact,” he asserted.

FIFA Ban CAF President Ahmad Ahmad For Five Years Over Corruption

Published

on

Ahmad Ahmad, the embattled president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has been banned for five years over financial misconduct.

The ban was announced during his campaign to be re-elected for four more years as the head of African soccer.

The FIFA ethics committee found “Ahmad had breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President.”

Ahmad, a former government official in Madagascar, was also fined 200,000 Swiss francs ($220,000).

His first four-year term was rocked with allegations of financial wrongdoing and misconduct at the Confederation of African Football headquarters in Cairo.

The 60-year-old was detained by French authorities in Paris on the eve of the Women’s World Cup for questioning about a CAF equipment deal with a company that appeared to have little connection with soccer.

“The investigation into Mr. Ahmad’s conduct in his position as CAF President during the period from 2017 to 2019 concerned various CAF-related governance issues, including the organization and financing of an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca, his involvement in CAF’s dealings with the sports equipment company Tactical Steel and other activities,” FIFA said in a statement.

An audit of CAF finances pointed to irregularities under Ahmad’s leadership. The report was ordered by FIFA while it effectively took over running the organization for six months.

CAF appeared to pay about $100,000 for 18 people, including Ahmad and the heads of some of the continent’s 54 national member federations, to travel on the pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

The CAF election is scheduled for March 12 in Rabat, Morocco.
