Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, Member of Parliament for Suame constituency and Majority Leader, has decried the spread of betting in Ghana football.

Speaking to Akoma sports, he said “indeed betting is something which is really destroying our game. Football is and must be won on the pitch, but when people try to manipulate the results of the game even before it is played, then that is serious which needs an immediate solution.”

He said what is happening in Ghana football is peculiar “I have been to so many countries across Africa and I don’t see these things happening there.”

He feared “If care is not taken, the game will be destroyed completely in the future.”

He stated the issue will one day be raised in Parliament.

In May, AshantiGold and Inter Allies were demoted to Division Two League because of match-fixing. Both teams are said to have reached an agreement on the final outcome, with players placing bets.
