I want to be a house help for a Ghanaian minister – Delay
Delay, also known as Deloris Frimpong Manso, recently expressed a satirical desire to work as a house help for a Ghanaian minister in the wake of a controversy surrounding the Sanitation and Water Resources Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah.
The minister had reportedly suffered significant financial losses due to theft by two former maids. These maids allegedly stole a substantial amount of money, including one million dollars, 300,000 euros, and 350,000 Ghana cedis, along with other valuable items.

Celebrities and the public have shared varied responses to Delay’s tweet, with some perceiving it as sarcasm and others expressing concern or disapproval.
The theft incidents occurred over a three-month period from July to October 2022 at the minister’s residence in Abelemkpe, Accra. The accused individuals, named Patience and Sarah, are facing charges of conspiracy to commit a crime and multiple counts of stealing, involving staggering amounts of money and belongings.
The stolen items also included personal belongings of Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah, such as valuable clothes, handbags, perfumes, and jewelry, totaling GH¢95,000 and US$95,000 in value. Additionally, one of the accused, Patience, is allegedly involved in the theft of cultural treasures, including six pieces of Kente cloth worth GH¢90,000 and six sets of men’s suits valued at US$3,000, which belonged to the minister’s husband. The complexity of the case has led to the charging of three more individuals.
It is alleged that the stolen funds were used by the accused to finance various properties and purchases, including renting a 3-bedroom apartment and a store in Tamale, buying vehicles, and funding other personal expenses. The court proceedings have been adjourned to August 2, 2023, as investigations continue.
