Actress Rosemond Brown adding her voice to the many who are still in shock after the heart-wrenching revelations in the recent Anas exposé on the rot in Ghana football has described the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi as ‘wicked’ and a sell-out.
Anas’ latest exposé dubbed "Number 12" which captures many referees and key officials within the association in compromising positions has caused a shake up in the country's football.
Mr. Nyantakyi was recorded taking a cash gift of $65,000 and negotiating a sponsorship deal with potential investors who turned out to be investigators.
On the back of the video which has implicated several GFA officials, the actress who expressed her disapointment at the conduct of those captured in the exposé said, “when I watched the thing I got a heart attack, I collapsed. So I went off. This is serious.”
“He is a wicked man. He can kill. He is a sell out because he gave out everything about Ghanaians and the President and he insulted our President. He made him look small. You are a black and you are out there, you have to up there, not to bring us down. I was disappointed in him,’ she added.
Kwesi Nyantakyi was caught on tape giving ‘too much’ information to what he thought were possible investors but turned out to be members of Anas’ TigerEyePI crew.
In Anas’ Number12 exposé, Mr. Nyantakyi was secretly recorded bragging about his seeming easy access to the President and his Vice, a situation he suggested would aid secure the potential investor whichever sector in the economy they choose to invest in.
He bragged about securing a meeting with the President, The Vice President as well as Roads Minister Kwasi Amoako-Atta, only if an amount of $11 million could be made available to be split among the aforementioned.
He revealed conversations he allegedly had with Deputy Roads Minister, Anthony Karbo, indicating that if certain amounts were made available to the President and his Vice, the investor would have it easy with his endeavours in the country.
This among other things he said would facilitate a solid business relationship between the parties, guaranteeing the investor of bigger and more lucrative deals in the country.
Following the premiere on Wednesday, a section of Ghanaians were shocked after they witnessed GFA officials, referees, football administrators and those in the Sports Ministry, entrusted with a mandate to manage Ghana football, take money from people for personal gains.
Many were especially disappointed in Mr. Nyantakyi who has not more than once successfully debunked rumours about him being corrupt in the past.
While Mr. Nyatakyi has since resigned from his post, some believe his resignation does not solve the bigger problem which is the thick coat of corruption overshadowing Ghana football.
