For the second time in three months suspended Director General of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Robert Sarfo Mensah, has been implicated in a scandal.

Mr Mensah was captured in #Number12, the investigative journalism documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas allegedly accepting a GHc 5,000 bribe to influence player selection and give certain players more minutes at the FIFA U-17 World Cup held in India last year.

In the video, Sarfo Mensah is captured receiving money and assuring the Tiger Eye PI team he would ensure the unnamed player is given playing time.

The former MP for Asunafo North was suspended in April by President Akufo Addo in April following the visa scandal that rocked the country’s participation at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

He was part of four National Sports Authority officials that were captured by Anas' Tiger Eye PI operatives on video clips allageing receiving sums of money for certain favours. They include NSA PRO, Frederica Mensah Davies who received GHC 1,000, the Ashanti Regional Director of the National Sports Authority, Joshua Mensah who was handed GHC 2,000 and Patrick Agorzor who received monies to obtain visas for certain persons to travel.
