Controversial TV/Radio presenter Afia Schwarzenegger has blasted the minister of sports of sports for failing to pay the winning bonus of the Black Queens.
The Queens won gold at the All Africa Games, but paying their bonuses is proving to be an issue. Ghana FA Technical Director Francis Oti Akenten has been drawn into the growing debate. With the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Queens management committee not agreeing on how much should be paid to the team.
Angry Afia Schwarzenegger in an open letter to Nana Oye Lithur, Minister of Gender, children and social protection expressed her disappointment in how the issue about the unpaid bonus was being handled.
Dear Minister of Gender,
We were all in Ghana when our dear minister of sports flew money (bonus for black stars and GFA) to the Brazil which gained Ghana an international humiliation instead of the world cup and like an unrepetented witch, we recently did the same to Kigale.. We were here when some players refused to go to training be cos of their bonus.
The black queens on the other hand worked their ass off to raise the flag of Ghana high only to return to be treated like hookers… left in a hotel be cos of what they deserve… what is rightfully theirs… Really???
Where did we get the money for the blackstars? ? How long will men in power continue to disrespect and look down on women??? Will they have treated them like this if they were their daughters??? Madam, please ask ur colleague, the minister of youth and sports to pay the women their bonus which we all know is peanut to avoid further embarrassment
… Black queens brought Ghana gold
… Something that black stars can’t achieve in the next 10 years.. They should be treated as the heroes they are.
ENOUGH OF INSULTS ON WOMEN… I rest my
