Chief Executive Officer of Gold dealership company, Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah has berated popular radio and TV personality Israel Laryea for what he describes as a smear campaign against his business.
A post put up by the embattled businessman describes a report by Mr. Laryea who visited the UK office of Menzgold to ascertain the truth or otherwise of a claim that the company had indeed set up an office for its activities in the United Kingdom as a “pursuit of this evil smear campaign agenda.”
According to Nana Appiah Mensah popularly referred to as NAM 1, “business is not a thing for the pope,” in a clear response to Mr. Laryea whose report sought to suggest there may not necessarily be a UK branch of the now distressed Menzgold as had been touted earlier in the year.
Israel Laryea said in his report that the only thing that suggested there may be an office space rented out to the Ghanaian company in the plush Berekely Square House building was perhaps, the sight of two black ladies, whom he presumed to be Ghanaian during his visit.
But NAM1 who appears enraged by the report a section of Ghanaians have already described as ‘shoddy’ as can be seen in several comments on the post on the JoyNews facebook page has gone all out to attack the sanity of the rather popular radio and television presenter. He has further challenged the broadcaster to “set up a provision store today in a kiosk and employ just one Ghanaian.”
Nana Appiah Mensah posted on instagram saying, “Hello Israel Laryea, today I celebrate your stupidity and retarded mindedness. set up a provision store today in a kiosk and employ just one Ghanaian. That is more than the pursuit of this evil smear campaign agenda. Maybe you need to be reminded, I am a businessman and not a politician. You can’t break me! Business is not a thing for the pope. Think about it. God bless you.”
Nana Appiah Mensah and Menzgold have been in the news in recent time. The company has been in a fight with the Bank of Ghana and more recently, the Securities and Exchanges Commission over the legitimacy of their business operation in the country.
