Did FIFA’s forensic audit really find no corruption against Kwesi Nyantakyi?

GFA

One of the trending news on Monday has been about a forensic audit conducted by FIFA on the Ghana Football Association (GFA), which found no acts corruption or financial impropriety on Kwesi Nyantakyi during his tenure.

Reports suggest that an audit conducted on the orders of FIFA six months ago also cleared members of the Executive Committee of the GFA of any acts of malfeasance.

The auditing officials, who spent about one month in Ghana investigating the financial affairs of the federation, discovered that neither corruption nor embezzlement took place at the GFA.

The audit report concluded that the Ghana FA has only ‘perception issues’ to deal with since media reports of corruption within the federation are ‘wide off the mark’, the report said.

However, the FIFA auditors recommended that the slim accounts office staff must be boosted while modern accountancy software used by some federations like the South African FA must be acquired by the Ghana FA to ease the workload.

 

Ghanaian sports journalism, Gary Al-Smith seems to be contesting the veracity of the report, which was first published by Ghanasoccernet.com, believed to be pro-Nyantakyi.

Meanwhile, another report from GHwired.com says amember of the Ghana FA Normalization Committee, Naa Odofoley Nortey has rubbished claims the Committee has received the forensic audit report conducted by the world football governing body into the Kwesi Nyantakyi’s led administration.

Police brutality is slapping someone cooperating and already in cuffs – musician NY Melody

The Ghana Police Service arrested 29 people on Tuesday after dispersing a violent anti-cost protest in Accra with tear gas. The protest took a turn for the worse when protesters engaged in a violent exchange with police, injuring 12 officers and leading to the arrest of some of the protesters.

Following the incident, many Ghanaians, both inside and outside the country, have come out to condemn the police and protesters’ violent actions.

One video that went viral from the incident showed a police officer beating a handcuffed protester who was clearly not resisting arrest. The video sparked an online outrage, with “Be My Love” singer NY Melody among those quick to condemn the officer’s actions.

The musician later posted a video in which he expressed his disappointment at seeing the video. For him, the police officer was abusing his authority, and slapping someone who was already handcuffed was completely unnecessary.

“We live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we have the right to demonstrate when something bothers us.” The police, also known as “Peace Officers,” are supposed to keep the peace and order no matter what environment they are in.”

Imagine what would have happened if the protesters had retaliated in response to the slap. The cops should have known better; they should have some emotional intelligence. “Police brutality is slapping someone already in cuffs who isn’t resisting arrest.” he said.
