TIMELINE: The Ugly, Bad And Awful Things Things That Have Happened Since Menzgold Was Forced To Shut Its Doors

Nana Appiah Mensah

Life on the streets is damn hard, yet man ought to eat, cloth him or herself and find a place to lay their head. It is this daily struggle that makes people get on the grind and do the most.

After getting the basic needs, then comes the small luxuries we want to enjoy – just because Abraham Maslow said so.

Charley, with the economy and things getting harder to crack, boys are prepared to do whatever to get going. Illegal stuff to legal stuff – nothing is out of reach once there will be a return.

That is why Menzgold and its promise of very lucrative returns were so appealing, as it turns out, almost all their customers were very satisfied with their work, because the customers are actually the ones fighting the government to allow Menzgold to operate.

September 7, 2018: The Securities and Exchange Commission ordered Menzgold to shut down immediately.  According to the SEC, interactions with representatives of Menzgold confirmed to SEC the view that the aspect of Menzgold’s business which involves purchase and deposit of gold collectables and guaranteed returns is a capital market activity under Act 929 and Menzgold doesn’t have a valid license issued by SEC which contravenes the law.

Initially, Menzgold wanted to prove stubborn but they eventually yielded and shut its doors. It’s still shut with people believing that they will reopen on the 28th of September.

September 14, 2018: A group of young people who called themselves the Coalition of Concerned Youth of Ghana (COCYOGH) embarked on a demonstration exercise to get government and the SEC to allow Menzgold to resume operations.


Their demonstration was part of the #JusticeForMenzgold online campaign that saw celebrities – most of whom have been signed to the Menzgold entertainment arm, Xylofon, post the hashtag on social media – effectively to get their fans to support Menzgold in such trying times of the gold dealership.
