Legal Practitioner Questions Resigned Sanitation Minister’s Claim Over Theft Reports

Private legal practitioner, Samson Lardy Anyenini, has raised doubts about the basis for the claim made by resigned Sanitation and Water Resources Minister, Cecilia Dapaah, regarding media reports on the theft incident at her home.

Media reports surfaced on Friday, revealing that two housemaids who worked for the minister and her husband were facing trial for allegedly stealing large sums of money and other items from their home. The charge sheet indicated that the stolen items included US$1 million, €300,000, and millions of Ghana cedis, along with clothes, handbags, perfumes, jewelry, kente cloth, and suits belonging to the minister’s husband.

Cecilia Dapaah, in response to the publications, raised concerns about the alleged amounts stolen, claiming “noticeable inconsistencies” in the discussions of what she reported to the police. However, Samson Anyenini pointed out that the charge sheet had already been amended twice, questioning whether she intends to amend it again.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, Anyenini noted that usually, before the police take a matter to court, the charge sheet is shown to the complainant(s) for any corrections or changes they desire. He mentioned that the charge sheet had been amended twice, with the initial amount of one million dollars never changing in any of the amendments.

Meanwhile, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has confirmed Cecilia Dapaah’s arrest over suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses related to the reported stolen money and valuable items from her residence.
