If I Had US$1m In My House I Wouldn’t Sleep – Sefa Kayi Reacts to Cecilia Dapaah’s Stolen ‘Millions’



Host of Kokrokoo on Peace FM, Kwami Sefa Kayi has stated that there is some legitimacy in the concerns being raised around the monies allegedly stolen from the home of former Minister for Sanitation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah.

Speaking on the Monday, July 24, 2023, edition of his program, he noted that the incident under the circumstance has gained public attention due to “perception and optics.”

He noted that while the reaction would have been different if the same amount had been discovered or went missing in the home of some individuals, the case of the minister has turned out to be different due to her position.

“If it was said that a million dollars had been found in the house of my bosses Despite or Ofori Sarpong or Tobinco or Ibrahim Mahama, it would not be a surprise to anyone because we know them as businessmen and that brings us back to perception and optics,” he said.

While making his point, Nana Freduah who was a guest on the program suggested that it would not be farfetched for Sefa Kayi to have a million dollars at home.

While hopeful of making such an amount in the future, the journalist noted that having such an amount at home would give him sleepless nights.

“I pray I make some but I don’t have such an amount… if such amount exists in my home, I won’t sleep!” he exclaimed.
