Ghana’s Victoria Hammah sacked over $1m claim

Staff Writer

Ghana’s Deputy Communications Minister Victoria Hammah has been sacked in Ghana after she was apparently recorded saying she would stay in politics until she has made $1m (£600,000).
“If you have money then you can control people,” she said on the tape which has been widely circulated in Ghana. Hammah has not yet commented on the tape or her sacking.
The BBC’s Sammy Darko in Accra says she played a key role in President John Mahama’s election last year.
