The Akufo-Addo government will not use taxpayers’ money to pay clients whose investments have been locked up with gold-trading firm Menzgold Ghana Limited, a statement issued by Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has said.

Menzgold has been struggling to pay its tens of thousands of customers after it was asked to stop its gold vault market operations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over regulatory infractions.

That order followed several cautions to the public to desist from engaging in business transactions with Menzgold by the Bank of Ghana as it said the gold dealership firm was not licensed to take deposits.

The aggrieved customers have held several demonstrations to pile pressure on the government to intervene so they could get their money. One of such recent demonstrations took place in Kumasi.

The government, in the statement said: “Menzgold was not licensed by BoG or SEC and its operations were not regulated by BoG or SEC. This warning was made as far back as April 2016, and, unfortunately, was disregarded by many customers of Menzgold. BoG and SEC are, therefore, not clothed with any legal mandate to refund monies to clients.

“In the case of banks and specialised deposit-taking institutions, as well as asset management companies licensed and regulated by BOG and SEC, owing to the fact that these companies were regulated by BoG and SEC, the regulators are clothed with the legal mandate to intervene in their matters, in accordance with law. DKM, for example, was licensed by the BoG, the reason for which it stepped in to help retrieve the monies of depositors. In the case of Menzgold, it operated as a trading company and falls outside the scope of the regulators’ intervention,” parts of the statement read.

It continued that “while the government sympathises with customers on the difficulties encountered in their transaction with the company, the State cannot and will not resort to the use of taxpayers’ monies to refund customers monies.

“The government wishes to inform the general public that the security agencies, having received reports from customers that they believe they have been defrauded by false pretences, shall employ all the powers of the State to find the accused persons, investigate the allegations, and ensure that the law takes its course in this matter.”

Traders at the Takoradi Central Market popularly known as “Market Circle” are yet to come terms with the reality after a woman, believed to be in her forties, bolted away with a one- year-old baby boy last Friday.

Police and residents of Takoradi are on a manhunt for the suspect; a middle-aged woman who stole the year-old baby boy from her mother at the Takoradi Market Circle.

The suspect who was dressed in a long dress with a veil covering her face is alleged to have pretended to be shopping in the market and engaged the victim’s mother, Nana Akosua, in a hearty conversation to the extent that the two started speaking local dialect Ewe.

The unidentified suspect requested to assist Nana Akosua to hand over her baby boy to her to relieve her so could serve customers better.

The one-year-old Francis Mawusi Ahiabenu was stolen at the market Friday

The suspect then took the one year old boy and his siblings to a nearby pastries shop and bought them some, and later returned the siblings leaving the one year old boy with the pastries seller.

The suspect then promised to return the boy but subsequently bolted away with the boy without the mother noticing.

Later, the victim’s mother, realising their absence at the pastries shop , raised an alarm but it was too late to trace the whereabouts of her baby.

The frustrated mother began searching for her baby but could only get footage of her missing baby and the suspect from some banks whose CCTV captured them.

The Takoradi police has since launched a manhunt for the suspect and the baby.
