He was shot in the leg when violence erupted between some South Africans and foreigners in the area.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ program, Chairman of the Ghanaians Association in Kempton Park Johannesburg, Wofa Atta explained that they received a report of the attack Wednesday morning.

“However, I can confirm that he is in a stable condition and is also receiving treatment,”  he said.

He explained that he was shot in the leg but currently a Ghanaian team has been dispatched to the area to assist him.

He, however, added that police have been able to bring the situation under control but cautioned Ghanaians in any other province to contact their various groups or the Ghanaian mission when there is an attack in their area.

The government of Ghana should also get in touch with the government of South Africa to ensure that total peace is restored to enable them to continue with their daily activities.

The government has been urged to break ties with South Africa after another round of xenophobic attacks on Africans has left five dead and several shops torched.

Ghana’s left-wing political movement, Economic Fighters League has called for the severing of diplomatic ties with South Africa.

The statement signed by Fighter-General Hardi Yakubu said a break-off with the South African government will “force them to do the right thing.”

Human rights groups and several African governments have expressed worry that the South African government is doing little to deal with xenophobic rage.

The Nigerian government has summoned the South Africa High Commissioner while Zambia has warned truck drivers who work in the country to stay away.

Joining in the condemnation, the Economic Fighters League said the South African government ‘continues to deny the existence of the problem’.

South Africa’s Police Minister, Bheki Cele, said on Monday that, “criminality rather than xenophobia” was to blame for the “senseless violence”.

President Cyril Ramaphosa also refused to call the attacks xenophobic describing it as ‘anti-foreigner violence’.

Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah has been granted a GH¢1 billion bail by an Accra Circuit court presided over by Jane Helen Akweley Quaye.

This was when he appeared in court Friday morning for the commencement of his trial. To secure the bail, NAM1 is expected to present 5 surities, three of whom must be justified.

The CEO of embattled gold trading Menzgold has been charged with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without a licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).

Two of his companies — Brew Marketing Consult and Menzgold Ghana Limited — represented by him, have each been charged with defrauding by false pretence, contrary to sections 20 (1) and 13 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).

His sister and wife have also been slapped with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without licence contrary to section 6(1) of Act 930.

The two women who are said to have aided Menzgold to carry out the fraudulent acts are still at large as their whereabouts still remain a mystery to the police.

Customers of Menzgold who have had their monies locked up as a result of the closedown of the company besieged the court this morning, calling for NAM1’s release.

Upon NAM1’s appearance at the court, the customers, holding various placards, began to scream “free NAM1, he is our hero”.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards are:

“Form committee for transparency now”, “suspend criminal charges now”, “23 people dead in Menzgold saga”, “no money for fees and medical bills” among others.
