Muntaka matter: update

Following the media frenzy after reports that Ghana's sports minister has embezzled some state funds, the police have started moving in.

After my last post yesterday, I started getting info that about 20 police personnel stormed the offices of the Youth and Sports Ministry in Accra.

The Minister has denied any wrong doing in a catalogue of accusations by the ministry's Principal Accountant, Adim Odoom.

Following the police presence at the ministry, rumours have been rife particularly in Accra, that Mr. Odoom and the Chief Director, Mr. Albert Kwadwo Ampong, were arrested in a swoop.
