Popular fetish priest, Nana Kwaku Bonsam has revealed that he is part of the people who have their money locked up at Menzgold.
According to him he was able to retrieve 350,000 Ghana cedis out of the initial deposit of 400,000 when he got a hint that the company was about facing some liquidity challenge and could collapse perpetually.
“I was home when Afia Shwarznegger called me and I asked why then she said come with me to Menzgold let’s go and collect our money meanwhile at that time, the issues had not started so I told her to give me time to look into it first” he told Kassapa FM in an interview.
“I then quickly went there to take my money but I was given 350,000 and was told to come back another day for the remaining 50,000 but when the issues started I couldn’t go because others with more money than mine were even not complaining” he added.
