PAC addresses asserted GHS2M installment to Shatta Wale, other brand ministers of Exim Bank

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament has hailed the supposed installment of GHS2 million to Ghanaian artiste, Shatta Wale by Ghana’s Exim Bank.

An individual from the Committee, Ras Mubarak, raised worries over the said sum during a PAC sitting on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

He demanded that it was not judicious for Exim Bank to pay such an add up to an artiste to advance items made in Ghana.


“I referenced GHS2 million that went to Shatta Wale yet the Deputy CEO says they wouldn’t know who the merchant chose. What’s more, it is not necessarily the case that we disapprove of Shatta Wale getting some measure of cash to accomplish whatever work. Be that as it may, the Ghanaian open has the right to know what amount went out and who found it on the grounds that their solutions were not fulfilling.”

Yet, because of the inquiry, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Kwame Adu-Darkwa, said the foundation had gotten a media consultancy outfit to manage matters of such nature.

He demanded that the artiste was not paid legitimately by the Exim Bank.

“You will be amazed how brand represetatives can be useful for advancing a specific part. At times what should be done is that on the off chance that you have accomplished inconceivable work, it will be useful for individuals to comprehend what their alternatives are, and having a decent brand minister to do that bodes well.”

On his part, Chairman of the Committee, James Klutse Avedzi said his outfit will before long welcome authorities from the bank to give subtleties of the said installments to the dancehall artiste and other brand represetatives.

Biden Selects California Senator Kamala Harris as Running Mate

Biden Selects California Senator Kamala Harris as Running Mate

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., speaks during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing to examine…

WILMINGTON, DELAWARE – Joe Biden named California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate on Tuesday, making history by selecting the first Black woman to compete on a major party’s presidential ticket and acknowledging the vital role Black voters will play in his bid to defeat President Donald Trump.

In choosing Harris, Biden is embracing a former rival from the Democratic primary who is familiar with the unique rigor of a national campaign. Harris, a 55-year-old first-term senator, is also one of the party’s most prominent figures and quickly became a top contender for the No. 2 spot after her own White House campaign ended. 

Harris joins Biden in the 2020 race at a moment of unprecedented national crisis. The coronavirus pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 150,000 people in the U.S., far more than the toll experienced in other countries. Business closures and disruptions resulting from the pandemic have caused an economic collapse. Unrest, meanwhile, has emerged across the country as Americans protest racism and police brutality.

FILE – Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks about his plans to combat racial inequality at a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware, July 28, 2020.

Trump’s uneven handling of the crises has given Biden an opening, and he enters the fall campaign in strong position against the president. In adding Harris to the ticket, he can point to her relatively centrist record on issues such as health care and her background in law enforcement in the nation’s largest state. 

Harris’ record as California attorney general and district attorney in San Francisco was heavily scrutinized during the Democratic primary and turned off some liberals and younger Black voters who saw her as out of step on issues of systemic racism in the legal system and police brutality. She tried to strike a balance on these issues, declaring herself a “progressive prosecutor” who backs law enforcement reforms.

Biden, who spent eight years as President Barack Obama’s vice president, has spent months weighing who would fill that same role in his White House. He pledged in March to select a woman as his vice president, easing frustration among Democrats that the presidential race would center on two white men in their 70s. 

Biden’s search was expansive, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a leading progressive, Florida Rep. Val Demings, whose impeachment prosecution of Trump won plaudits, California Rep. Karen Bass, who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, whose passionate response to unrest in her city garnered national attention.

A woman has never served as president or vice president in the United States. Two women have been nominated as running mates on major party tickets: Democrat Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and Republican Sarah Palin in 2008. Their party lost in the general election. 

The vice presidential pick carries increased significance this year. If elected, Biden would be 78 when he’s inaugurated in January, the oldest man to ever assume the presidency. He’s spoken of himself as a transitional figure and hasn’t fully committed to seeking a second term in 2024. If he declines to do so, his running mate would likely become a front-runner for the nomination that year.

Born in Oakland to a Jamaican father and Indian mother, Harris won her first election in 2003 when she became San Francisco’s district attorney. In the role, she created a reentry program for low-level drug offenders and cracked down on student truancy.

She was elected California’s attorney general in 2010, the first woman and Black person to hold the job, and focused on issues including the foreclosure crisis. She declined to defend the state’s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage and was later overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

As her national profile grew, Harris built a reputation around her work as a prosecutor. After being elected to the Senate in 2016, she quickly gained attention for her assertive questioning of Trump administration officials during congressional hearings. In one memorable moment last year, Harris tripped up Attorney General William Barr when she repeatedly pressed him on whether Trump or other White House officials pressured him to investigate certain people.

Harris launched her presidential campaign in early 2019 with the slogan “Kamala Harris For the People,” a reference to her courtroom work. She was one of the highest-profile contenders in a crowded Democratic primary and attracted 20,000 people to her first campaign rally in Oakland. 

But the early promise of her campaign eventually faded. Her law enforcement background prompted skepticism from some progressives, and she struggled to land on a consistent message that resonated with voters. Facing fundraising problems, Harris abruptly withdrew from the race in December 2019, two months before the first votes of the primary were cast.

One of Harris’ standout moments of her presidential campaign came at the expense of Biden. 
During a debate, Harris said Biden made “very hurtful” comments about his past work with segregationist senators and slammed his opposition to busing as schools began to integrate in the 1970s. 

“There was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day,” she said. “And that little girl was me.”
Shaken by the attack, Biden called her comments “a mischaracterization of my position.”

The exchange resurfaced recently one of Biden’s closest friends and a co-chair of his vice presidential vetting committee, former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd, still harbors concerns about the debate and that Harris hadn’t expressed regret. The comments attributed to Dodd and first reported by Politico drew condemnation, especially from influential Democratic women who said Harris was being held to a standard that wouldn’t apply to a man running for president. 

Some Biden confidants said Harris’ campaign attack did irritate the former vice president, who had a friendly relationship with her. Harris was also close with Biden’s late son, Beau, who served as Delaware attorney general while she held the same post in California. 

But Biden and Harris have since returned to a warm relationship. 

“Joe has empathy, he has a proven track record of leadership and more than ever before we need a president of the United States who understands who the people are, sees them where they are, and has a genuine desire to help and knows how to fight to get us where we need to be,” Harris said at an event for Biden earlier this summer. 

At the same event, she bluntly attacked Trump, labeling him a “drug pusher” for his promotion of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus, which has not been proved to be an effective treatment and may even be more harmful. After Trump tweeted “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” in response to protests about the death of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody, Harris said his remarks “yet again show what racism looks like.”

Harris has taken a tougher stand on policing since Floyd’s killing. She co-sponsored legislation in June that would ban police from using chokeholds and no-knock warrants, set a national use-of-force standard and create a national police misconduct registry, among other things. It would also reform the qualified immunity system that shields officers from liability.

The list included practices Harris did not vocally fight to reform while leading California’s Department of Justice. Although she required DOJ officers to wear body cameras, she did not support legislation mandating it statewide. And while she now wants independent investigations of police shootings, she didn’t support a 2015 California bill that would have required her office to take on such cases.

“We made progress, but clearly we are not at the place yet as a country where we need to be and California is no exception,” she told The Associated Press recently. But the national focus on racial injustice now shows “there’s no reason that we have to continue to wait.”

Do you remember this woman of GTV ‘Mmaa Nkomo’ fame ?she in Nsawam prison

Afia Ansaa Ampene the popular television hostess of the popular Mmaa Nkommo show on Ghana Television has been missed.
Rumours had it that she is languishing in Nsawam prisons over an allegation.

In 2016, the TV host and her son, Stephen Kwabena, were alleged to have collected goods from a dealer of Nestle and Unilever products to the tune of GH¢265,988, with the promise of selling the items and returning the proceeds. And went into hiding until their arrest.
Its however unclear whether they were sentenced or not. Fans have missed her.
Afia Ansaa Pene rose to fame in the early 2000s with her show which focused on the well being of families. Her program shaped homes and families into better ones.
Flashback story: Host of Mmaa Nkommo dragged to court for alleged fraud
This story was first published on March, 1, 2017
The hostess of the defunct popular women TV programme, Mmaa Nkommo, Madam Afia Ansaa Ampene, and her son have been dragged before the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly defrauding a woman of GH¢265,988.
In 2016, the TV host and her son, Stephen Kwabena, were alleged to have collected goods from a dealer of Nestle and Unilever products to the tune of GH¢265,988, with the promise of selling the items and returning the proceeds.
The two have, however, pleaded not guilty to two counts of conspiracy to commit crime and defrauding by false pretence.
At yesterday’s sitting, counsel for the two, Mr Kofi Bonnie, pleaded with the court to grant his clients bail because they had made plans to pay the said amount.
According to him, his clients had been unable to pay the money because their business partners owed them.
“It is not my clients’ intention not to pay the money. Their business partners have not been faithful. But they will take steps to settle the amount,’’ he said.
Counsel further argued that his clients were gainfully employed and had a fixed place of abode.
“My clients are also not flight risk and will, therefore, not attempt to jump bail,’’ he argued.
In view of counsel’s argument, the court, presided over by Mrs Ruby Naa Adjeley Quaison, admitted Madam Ampene and her son to bail in the sum of GH¢205,900, with three sureties each.
One of the sureties, according to the court, must be a public servant not earning less than GH¢1,000 a month.
“Valid photo identifications of the sureties must also be produced,’’ the court ordered.
The case was adjourned to March 13, 2017.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Matthew Acheampong told the court that the complainant is the managing director of a trading company that deals in Nestle and Unilever products.
Between October 1, 2016 and November 4, 2016, he said, Madam Ampene and her son took Nestle and Unilever products worth GH¢265,988 from the company.
The two, he said, promised to deliver the goods to a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and later return the proceeds to the dealer.
According to the prosecutor, Madam Ampene issued two post-dated cheques with the face value of GH¢60,000 and GH¢40,000, but the GH¢60,000 cheque was rejected by the bank.
“Ampene later went to the company and convinced the accountant, collected the bounced cheque and deposited GH¢10,000 and promised to bring the balance of GH¢215,888 by the close of banking hours that day,’’ he said.
Mr Acheampong said Madam Ampene and her son later vacated their house at New Sabrepo, near the Michel Camp, and went into hiding.
“All efforts by the managing director to trace their whereabouts proved futile. During investigations by the police, Madam Ampene was arrested from her hideout in Tema, while her son was arrested at a hotel at Haatso,’’ he added.
Upon their arrest, the prosecutor added, the two refunded GH¢10,000 of the amount.
