Menzgold Saga: It Could Lead To Civil War- Security Analysts Warns


Hundreds of Aggrieved customers of Menzgold in Tarkwah on Tuesday took to the street to register their displeasure on what they describe as disregards on the part of Government in retrieving their monies from CEO of Menzgold Ghana ,Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known as ‘NAM1’.

Tuesday’s demonstration followed a similar one held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region last month. The Ashanti Regional Police Command described that the demonstration as “illegal”.

In an interview monitored by on Starr News, the aggrieved customers warned that the Tarkwa demonstration in the Western Region was the last peaceful protest they hold, warning the subsequent ones will be disruptive.

“We are not going to sit down today or tomorrow to let Nana Appiah Mensah dupe us. We are not going to tolerate that. From today, this is the last demonstration and if we do not hear anything from the government we are going to do our worst,” one of the demonstrators said.

Security analysts have however warned that, the Menzgold issue could lead to a civil war if not dealt with properly. Sharing his thoughts on the issue, Veteran lawyer, John Owusu Agyeman noted that, the customers involved are more than the security services hence the need for a swift action on the problem.

“About 1.8 million Menzgold customers are frustrated; this number is more some countries whole population. If this number of people should start an insurrection, can our 30,000 man strong army and about 40,000 Police force contain these people? That could cause a major crisis in this country.”
