Reports emerging indicate that the husband of Sanitation Minister Cecilia Dapaah, Daniel Osei Kuffuor has made some shocking remarks about the alleged theft of large sums of money and valuables from the home of former Sanitation Minister.

These remarks emerged during a High Court hearing, where her spouse served as the prosecution’s first witness. Justice Marie-Louise Simmons, presiding over the case, has adjourned the proceedings to May 20 for further cross-examination by the defense counsel of Patience Botwe, one of the accused.

Two housekeepers and five others stand trial for their alleged involvement in stealing one million dollars, other foreign currencies, and valuables from the former minister’s home. The accused include Benjamin Sowah, Malik Dauda, Christiana Achab, Job Pomary, and Yahaya Sumaila, all of whom have pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy and theft. Except for Sarah Agyei, a 31-year-old nursing mother, the accused remain in prison custody.

There is one office shop at Ashongman. About four storey building. There is also two storey at Osino area. There is another three-storey residence being converted into apartment at Mpraeso. There is a hotel project being put up at Atibie, he said.


At one of the confrontations where we were present, Botwe stated that the method adopted was that Agyei would be in the room operating and Botwe would be at the gate watching out, he recounted the operation.

During the court session on Wednesday, May 15, Daniel Osei Kuffuor, the 85-year-old husband of Cecilia Dapaah, testified that they discovered the missing money six weeks after suspecting the first accused, Patience Botwe. He recounted how he returned from an aborted trip to Akyem Oda to find their bedroom door open and Botwe hiding inside. With the help of his security detail and driver, Kuffuor reported Botwe to the Tesano Police.

Kuffuor detailed that during his wife’s trip to Kumasi in 2022, they discovered the theft of $410,000, £300,000, and GH¢300,000 from their storeroom. He explained that the stolen money included funds accumulated over 20 years and a recent payment of $500,000 from his niece, which was reduced to $200,000 after the theft.

So for that period, her siblings started gathering monies and they were giving it to her to keep, he said.
