Ghana minister sacked over illegal mining allegations

Ghana’s junior finance minister has been sacked because of corruption allegations against him linked to illegal gold mining.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has referred Charles Adu Boahen to prosecutors.

A documentary alleged that Mr Boahen had asked potential investors for $230,000 (ยฃ196,000) to give to the vice president to ensure a deal went through.

There has been no word so far from the junior finance minister.

The country’s vice-president said he was not aware of any meeting in which Mr Boahen had used his name to peddle influence.
