‘Double salaries’ probe not a witch hunt – Majority Leader

By on

The Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has rejected suggestions from the Minority that the recent investigation launched into the alleged payment of double salaries to some officials of the Mahama administration is an act of political witch hunt.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID), over the past week, has lined up some members of the minority to assist with investigations into the matter.

In a Citi News Interview, Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said there is no plan by the government to taint its political opponents, but that the gravity of the payment irregularities require a proper probe to forestall future occurrences.

“I am part of the government. I don’t know of any government scheme to accuse members of the NDC [National Democratic Congress]. As far as I am concerned, and I keep insisting, it is something that should concern the entire nation,” he said.

In line with this, Parliament announced the formation of a two-member bi-partisan committee to investigate the matter.

Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the committee is expected to provide some clarity on the issue to put it to rest.
