Ghana U20 ladies in AAG bonus row
By Patrick Akoto
Ghana’s Under-20 ladies are threatening to boycott Saturday’s All Africa Games final over ‘discrimination’ in the disbursement of winning bonuses, according to reports in the local media.
The Black Princesses were paid US$ 20,000 for securing a final berth while the Under-23 team pocketed US$ 40,000 for achieving the same feat.
The Sports Ministry claims they will play the difference of US$ 20,000 after the multi-sports event.
Minister Clement Kofi Humado was believed to have held a marathon meeting with the players to douse their anger ahead of the final cliff hanger against Cameroon.
The Black Princess are unbeaten in the tournament were clinical in dispatching Algeria 3-0 in the semi-final.
The Black Meteors will also play South Africa in the final on Saturday after a 1-0 win over Cameroon.
