Update in Muntaka's matter: he denies it while someone says it's classic déjà vu

The news in this case is coming thick and fast.

* The sports minister, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak has squelched reports that he has embezzled state monies in a five page document. Details here.

* Meanwhile, do you remember the former minister of sports who was jailed shortly after the New Patriotic Party came to power in 2001?

* Right, he has said that Muntaka was framed!

* Anyway some of you may recall that Mallam Issa was freed by presidential pardon in 2003.

* In all the talk, the Presidency denies sacking the embattled Muntaka.

ps: I'm becoming antsy because I have tried to upload pictures of the man in question but my picture uploading system is just not working.

So, you can see Muntaka's picture here and Mallam Issa's here.
