Veteran Ghanaian on-screen character David Dontoh has rubbished claims that he, together with artist Amandzeba Nat Brew, misused a measure of GHc125,000 having a place with a NGO.
As indicated by him, the cash was utilized for its proposed reason and they are prepared to represent each penny of it.
The on-screen character was talking in a meeting after an Accra High Court allowed him safeguard Thursday in the aggregate of GHc150,000 with two sureties for taking from the NGO in 2010.
The NGO, Africa Awake 2010 and its Executive Director, Mr. Kwame Wadaada sued the two diversion identities in 2013 to represent the cash which they supposedly pulled back from the NGO’s financial balance without power.
In 2013, NGO recorded a suit at the Fast Track Division of the High Court on July 22, asking Messrs Amandzeba and David Dontoh to render accounts in the matter of what they utilized the cash for or discount same in the event that they neglect to do as such.
Africa Awake 2010 guaranteed that in May 2010, it got a Public Private Partnership sponsorship to the tune of GHc150,000 from the legislature of the late President John Evans Atta Mills.
The cash was to be utilized for the foundation of an undertaking named the Atta Mills Legacy Project.
Africa Awake 2010 asserted that out of the GHc150,000, a measure of GHc145,000 was stored in the NGO’s Stanbic Bank account (Acc. No. 0140002631901) with Mr. Kwame Wadaada, Africa Awake 2010, Amandzeba Nat Brew and David Dontoh as signatories to the record.
The petitioners said that aside from a measure of GHc19,500, which they knew was spent on different undertakings, Amandzeba Nat Brew and David Dontoh made “unapproved withdrawals” between May 24, 2010, and June 10, 2010, to the tune of GHc125,000 without his insight.
Amandzeba Nat Brew and David Dontoh were served notice in May 2013 to discount the cash with enthusiasm inside of 14 days or face lawful activity however they neglected.
The on-screen character clarified that he has done nothing incorrectly and trusts that Kwame Wadaada is just attempting to soil his name.
He portrayed that, the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Culture needed to send some diversion identities to the 2010 World Cup to advance the nation at an expo. He was in this manner made the executive of a specially appointed board of trustees after the service said it didn’t have assets to bolster the excursion.
The late President John Evans Atta Mills, he included, made a gift to the board of trustees to bolster the outing. Three persons, himself [David Dontoh], Amandzeba and Kwame Wadaada, who needed to arrange a show, were the signatories of the record, he included.
“That record, we were three, myself, Amandzeba and him, that Kwame Wadaada gentleman and any two could make withdrawals from that record. When he [Kwame Wadaada] had gone to South Africa with Rex Omar and others and we were all the while setting we up, expected to purchase drums, pay artistes practices and T&T and things like that so myself and Amandzeba needed to go and make withdrawals for airfare bookings…
“We felt free to made withdrawals from that same record that we are discussing just so we could deal with every one of these things then you now come and say that we have come to take from that record. I don’t know how I can take from a record that I can legitimately sign to pull back from.”
The cash, David included, was not by any means adequate for the venture.
As per him, every one of the instruments they purchased, “I didn’t even take one. I exited every one of them at MUSIGA. Indeed, even the Wadaada fellow when he comes to Accra from Mankessim, I give him transport.”
Kwame Wadaada’s solicitation for a discount is unwarranted, he noted, focusing on that the said sum is not even his so “who [should] discount cash to him?”
David Dontoh trusts that Kwame Wadaada “is just barely attempting to utilize me in light of the fact that he realizes that on the off chance that he utilizes me and it comes into the media, it will burst into flames and after that by whatever methods he will have the capacity to get some cash. No one owes him one penny or anything.”
Amandzeba was not in court Thursday. The following listening to date is November 19, 201
