The ex Commercial and Marketing manager of Asante Kotoko Kofi Kapito has alleged that the K.K Sarpong-led administration is corrupt and involved in massive shady deals.

Kapito who was relieved off his duties with a press release of the ongoing reshuffling process at the Kumasi-based club on Monday says he is being sacrificed for standing against some of these fishy deals.

“I was with the Executive Chairman on Friday but he didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me in my face that he was sacking me,” he told Accra-based Hot FM.

“As a commercial manager I rightfully asked for all documents relating to all sponsorship agreements with the club.

“How can a whole commercial manager not be furnished with these vital documents?

“It is just because some of the deals are very fishy but at the right time we will come out with the bare facts.”

However, Kwame Baah-Nuako, a former Ghana FA/International Relations director of the club, has refuted these allegations saying Kapito is making the utterances out of spite.

“Sometimes some of our leaders should be very honest with themselves,” he said.

“The fact that the commercial and marketing manager of a club like Kotoko is not furnished with sponsorship documents speaks a lot of his contribution to the club.”

One of such shady deals mentioned by Kapito was the one involving MTN and Interplast.
