I didn't splash cash on the hips of women in Brazil, ex-Sports Minister Afriyie-Ankrah

Former Sports Minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has denied allegations he splashed the nation's cash on 'the hips of women' during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The seasoned politician was giving evidence in day two of his encounter with Presidential Commission set up to probe Ghana's disastrous campaign at the World Cup.

Afriyie Ankrah who has since been appointed Minister of State at the Presidency in a highly emotional session dismissed vile allegations he splashed cash on women during his time in Brazil.

"My Lord it is not true that I splashed dollars on the hips of women in Brazil," a highly charged Afriyie Ankrah told the commission when he was given the opportunity to clear the ear on numerous allegations leveled against him.

"It is also not true that my wife offered catering services during the World Cup."

Chairman of the commission Justice Senyo Dzemefe had earlier delayed proceedings to allow for the ex Sports Minister to regain his composure after breaking down in tears as he recounted events that led to Ghana's shameful exit from the World Cup.

Proceedings have since been adjourned to Monday where Afriyie Ankrah is to re-appear.

    This man is indeed a criminal thief and this commission has exposed him as a very dangerous thief! Where in the world does creating a mere website costs 22,857.000 Ghana CEDI's?? Where on earth! If u have just a WORD, u can create your own website for free without paying for a pesewa and this man can sit down in front of a presidential commission to say this lie!! This man is microcosm of what's wrong with Africa! This guy is a dangerous nation wrecker and he needs to be arrested and put before a competent court law!! How can this man shed tears whiles he has totally milked and steal from the nation coffins!! A mere website creationncan cause this nation 22,857.000 CEDI's is tantamount to a murder and this man should be charged for causing HUGE FINANCIAL CAUSE TO THE STATE! I know that, the corpse of those that were tied to the stalk and shot during the revolutionary time ll turn in their graves!! Ankrah, is a serial thief and dangerous criminal and I hope a worth government takes over to investigate this man and punish him severily for REAPING this nation like that!

    U criminal minded rogue!! What's has musicians and half baked actors and actress has to do with the WC when there are living Ghanaian football legends like polo, osei Kofi etc who could have sell Ghana better in Brazil than what these bunch of non entities did in Brazil! Taking becca, Jackie etc to Brazil as ambassadors is one of the most silly thing u did because they didn't serve any meaningful purpose other than wasting tax payers monies! This man is a criminal man and he should resting his PHAT ASS in jail if Ghana was a SERIOUS NATION! I quite remember this man during kufour era and how he used to blame the president for every mistake and now he that he find himself in similar position, he wants to apportion blames to everyone else except for himself! Now u know that, a leader takes the blame right?!! A saw a pic of him in Brazil holding a big bowl of food and the pic portray this man as a disgraceful man! STOMACH POLITICIAN! This man is thief because every deal he has involved himself in, has QUESTION MARKS about them! How can a former SALES MAN AT MECHAMICAL LLYOD become a MILLIONAIRE OVERNIGHT according to the respected FORBES MAGAZINE? How? If he is not a nation thief, then I wonder why he had all his wealth from! This man is one of the notorious criminal thief's in Ghana and I hope that a worth giving takes over to investigate him!

    Jackie appiah didn't went to Brazil free of charge!! Becca didn't wen to Brazil free of charge!! Dumelo or whatever his name is, didn't wnr there, free of charge!! They were all paid and my question is this, for what? What services did they rendered to the nation!! This is a clear case of CAUSING FINANACIAL LOSS TO THE STATE and we should made them refund every penny to the nation!! But knowing my nation as UN-SERIOUS AND JOKERS, these people ll be let off the hook!!!

    selfmade l know you mean JACKIE AND BECCA DIDN'T GO TO BRAZIL FREE OF CHARGE. I am gobsmack that Afriyie Ankra is still sticking around .He deserves a total banishment from government but in Ghana there is one rule for one and another rule for others. John Dumelo went to Brazil at the expense of the tax payer only to go and promote his own clothing lines,
