NPP MP Demands Details on Money Stolen from Cecilia Dapaah’s Residence

Sylvester Tetteh, the Member of Parliament for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro, has called for transparency from Cecilia Abena Dapaah, the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, regarding the alleged theft of large sums of foreign and local currencies from her residence in Accra by her domestic staff.

Tetteh expressed concern about potential disaffection within their party (NPP) due to the situation and emphasized the need for action from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. While he acknowledged that there is no law prohibiting individuals from keeping money at home, he urged the Minister to provide additional details on how the funds ended up in her house to avoid being judged in the court of public opinion.

He stated, “I don’t think she has done herself good with the statement because this matter has traveled far and one would have thought she would have provided enough evidence and not what she put out there, and she can be punished for it because the party structures say anyone who brings the party’s name into disrepute should be sanctioned. Once she had the opportunity to lay out the fact, she should have come out with the full facts in order not to put us in suspense.”

In response to public comments about the reported theft case, Cecilia Abena Dapaah released a statement on July 21, 2023, acknowledging the noticeable inconsistencies between the public discussions and the original complaint. She promised to provide a detailed response after thoroughly examining the origins of these inconsistencies.

The Minister had previously caused the arrest and prosecution of her domestic staff for allegedly stealing money, including $1 million dollars, €300,000, and several cedis, along with other items from her private residence between July and October 2022.
