Kumi Guitar will however not disclose the exact amount he has invested in MenzGold when asked by the presenter.
HALT ON MENZGOLD TRADING OPERATIONS
It will be recalled that the Ghana Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ordered the company to shut its vaults and halt operations alleging that MenzGold did not have the requisite license to deal in the purchase and deposit of gold collectibles from the public and issue contracts with guaranteed returns with clients, thereby violating the laws of Ghana.
The investments of the customers have since been locked up following the suspension of the company’s gold vault market services since Thursday, September 13, 2018.
