NAM 1’s wife is hiding in London – Afia Schwarzenegger alleges

Controversial presenter, Afia Schwarzenegger, has claimed that Rose Tetteh, the wife of Nana Appiah Mensah, CEO of Menzgold, is hiding in the United Kingdom (UK).

Her comments came hours after a warrant was issued for the arrest of Rose Tetteh and her husband for “defrauding by false pretence”.

Afia’s post read: “These 2 people are wanted by the police in Ghana…….I know Rose is in London so pls help report her to the London police…”.

Background

The customers of Menzgold since July last year, have been demanding the payment of their principal investments after the gold dealership company was instructed by the Securities and Exchange Commission to halt its gold trading operations.

Aggrieved customers have since been protesting to demand for their ‘locked up’ cash from the gold firm.

The latest incident was that which happened in Kumasi Tuesday January 8 where several customers besieged the company’s branch in the region. They among other things blocked access to Adum from Amakom road and burnt several tyres to relay their frustrations and demand for their monies.

Several others have issued threats on some major news outlets to register their seriousness about the issue. Some threats indicated a ‘no vote’ for President Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections if government does not take control of events and ensure their monies are returned.

A known member of the New Patriotic Party, Gabby Otchere-Darko, following that particular threat took to his Facebook page to reveal that the businessman had violated his bail terms and was on the run and called for his rearrest.
