Atta-Akyea Runs Away From $7 Million Payment In Controversial Sagleme Housing Project



Works and Housing Minister, Samuel Atta-Akyea has admitted his Ministry paid over $7 million to Constratora OAS Ghana Limited, contractors of the controversial Sagleme Housing Project in March 2017.

He has, however, stated that he was neither aware of the payment nor was it sanctioned by him revealing that it could have been done by the Chief Director of the Ministry at the time even though he was the Minister.

Asked on Accra-based Asempa Fm how come he was not aware of such huge payment even though he is the Minister responsible, he stated that it was the handy work of one Ziblim.

“It has come out in a very pathetic way. Ziblim at my blind side went and made the payment without my permission…there is a looming problem and you will soon see whether a Chief Director can sanction a payment without the approval of his Minister,” he disclosed.

When the host Osei Bonsu pointed out to him that he is vicariously responsible for whatever transpires at the Ministry including the acts of his subordinates, he disagreed.

“I am not responsible for criminal vicarious liability. There is nothing like a vicarious liability when it comes to criminality because I have not asked anyone to take any money and engage in a criminal act,” he defended.

Told in the face he has disappointed Ghanaians by sitting aloof and allow such payment to go through when he is supposed to superintend over happenings at the Ministry of Works and Housing he instead said thievery rather gained strength over him.

“Thievery has gained strength and the lack of the fear of God played a part. This is not my Chief Director but the one I came to meet. Do you know that after winning the December 2016 elections the signed a management contract over this and paid a company in Dubai? There is a problem in Ghana and a lot of issues will come out,” he stated on the show.

He however promised to make emerging issues public and demand answers from those culpable in facilitating payment with approval from the Chief Director in concert with someone at the Finance Ministry.

“I have not sanctioned any payment to Sagleme. Do you know my signature is very notorious and it has been proven I did not sanction those payments”, he asked.



DEBUT ALBUM: Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family




DEBUT ALBUM by Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family!
You’ve never heard a voice like Miriam Mandipira’s. Undeservedly, she doesn’t take credit for the power or presence she delivers. For Miriam, music is much more than just notes and words. It’s
magic. And faith. You can experience it LIVE and on the album, which is set to be released on September 1st.

She has been singing for as long as she can remember, growing up with her ears glued to the radio.

From the moment her school teacher asked her to sing in class, the rest has been history. From Africa to Denmark, from Book Café in Harare to Mojo Blues Bar and the big concert halls. From
Danish Radio Big Band to the Royal Theater. Music is music, and Miriam is the music.

“But it’s not about me when I sing. I’m just the instrument, and when I’m on stage with my band, I sing from a place that’s not about rules and technique but about emotions,” says the singer, who is
seriously trying her hand at songwriting – together with her Soul Family on the album “Ndiwe”, which means ‘you are the chosen one of my heart.’ The overall message is impossible to ignore

“Call me a soul singer, call me a jazz singer. I don’t care. Good music is good music, and I love interpreting other people’s songs and being inspired. At the same time, I think it’s great to try my
hand at creating and writing the songs myself – and with my friends in the Soul Family, I have found my place. They are my family, and the curiosity and respect we share are fantastic.”

You can experience that up close when Miriam & The Soul Family take the stage. The enthusiasm for music and communication is impossible to ignore and hear.

“I love to maintain the feeling of being a child. It’s an excitement and curiosity that keeps me going, and that’s why I’m so excited about every single concert – no matter how small or large it is.

Otherwise, I would never do it. This is not just a casual thing. This is a life, and everything means something,” says Miriam, who began her years in Denmark by jamming at Mojo Blues Bar, building a network.
