Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

A woman suspected by the police to be connected with the murder of the Managing Director of Summit Industries Limited, Kwame Kyei Apenteng-Mensah, in his room at his McCarthy Hills apartment on July 25, 2009 has been arrested by the police.

The woman, whose name is being withheld, is alleged to have harassed the deceased for the refund of money she remitted to the deceased for the purchase of a house.

She is said to have remitted $65,000 to the deceased while she was abroad for the purchase of the house.

The late Apenteng-Mensah was said to have failed to live up to the promise and was only able to refund $40,000 to the woman. The woman was said to have persistently demanded the rest of the money from the deceased.

The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr Frank Adu-Poku, told newsmen that the police had widened its net to arrest anyone suspected to be linked to Apenteng-Mensah’s murder.

He said two persons initially arrested had been granted police enquiry bail. The body of Apenteng-Mensah 65-year-old man was found near his bed with a stabbed throat on the morning of Saturday, July 25, 2009.

The late Apenteng-Mensah, whose company produces Le Country mineral water, was said to be living with his house help in a separate apartment from that of the other members of his family.
