Domelevo Chills In Zimbabwe

Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo, is cooling his heels in Zimbabwe after he was forced by President Akufo-Addo to take a five month mandatory leave.

On Friday, Mr. Domelevo posted photos of himself enjoying the sights and sounds of world-class tourist sites including the Victoria Waterfalls and Hwange National Park in the Southern African country.

In one of the photos which has gone around the internet, he is seen standing by a tour pick up in what appears to be a park.

Domelevo was forced to go on leave by the Akufo-Addo government after he decided to probe and surcharge Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo, for a dubious contract he gave British company, Kroll and Associates.

Osafo Maafo had contracted Kroll to supposedly recover government properties from some former government appointees and paid the company a whopping US$1million. But as Domelevo would find out later, the company was paid the money for no work done.

The Auditor-General then asked Osafo Maafo to explain himself and when he failed, he surcharged him.

The President immediately ordered the Auditor General to proceed on a 123 day leave after Osafo Maafo and Domelevo had gone to court over the issue. When Domelevo complained, Akufo-Addo increased the leave days to 167.

It is widely believed that the hounding out of Domelevo was to pave way for Osafo Maafo to be freed by the Judiciary which has also been packed with members and supporters of the ruling party, NPP.

Osafo Maafo has since been exonerated by the court.
