Sports ministry allegedly flew pastors and mallams to Egypt for AFCON 2019

When Ghanaian football lovers are yet to come to terms of the country’s $4.5 million spent on the Blackstars team in Egypt for the 2019 Africa cup of Nations it has also emerged that the sports ministry also flew some pastor and mallams to Egypt.

According to the report sighted on Ghanasoccernet.com, the role of both the pastors and mallams were to help the country end its 37years cup drought.

The reported indicated that the presence of a combined five pastors and mallams could not do the trick as the four-time African champions crashed out of the tournament at the Round of 16 stage, losing on penalties to Tunisia.
