Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors Senyo Hosi has given a laconic comment on the several scandals that have hit the country lately such as the missing excavators, the airbus scandal and the resurgence of galamsey.
“How can we excavate the airbus in a galamseyic
country?” he wondered, with a hashtag of munchendiology, which suggests
that the cause of these scandals may be blamed on the phenomenon of
munchendiology( let’s share and eat).
The tough-talking CEO’s creative tweet seems to bring to
fire the difficulty in tackling corruption given that both major political
parties -National Democratic Congress(NDC)and the New Patriotic
Party(NPP)- take turns to engage in scandalous.
The raging controversies involve some 500 missing excavators
seized from illegal miners, the resurgence of galamsey and an Airbus scandal,
involving the payment of monies by airbus that was meant to induce decision
makers in the purchase of some aircraft.
Ghanaians hunt for Government official 1, Intermediary 5 and 8
Following revelations by plane manufacturer Airbus, that it had an elaborate scheme that paid some €5 million to officials under the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, mainly through a close relative to a key elected government official at the time the bribe was paid, some Ghanaians who are curious to know the officials involved are digging deeper into clues provided by the company in court documents.
Some on social media suggests that the close relative of the
elected Ghanaian Government Official who the court documents say is a UK
national born in Ghana could be a relation to a powerful person in government
at the time while the government official is the said official himself who at
the time may have played a key role in negotiations for the purchase of the two
planes which began in 2009.
