Muntaka matter: update

Former Asante Kotoko chairman Herbert Mensah has emerged as a candidate for the Sports Ministry portfolio after embattled Muntaka Mubarak Mohammed was asked to proceed on leave.

Herbert scored high marks as a football administrator during his stints with Asante Kotoko from 1999-2002.

Former Minister E.T Mensah and ace Sports Journalist Kwabena Yeboah have also been linked in media with the job.

Mensah is credited with the transformation of Kotoko when he took charge in 1999 with his modern trend of football administration.

Deputy Minister and ace sports commentator Nii Nortey Duah has been in an acting capacity since.
