Ghana FA denies 'prostitute invasion' at Afcon



Local media have salivated on the rumours, but the Ghana FA has moved to quell reports of prostitutes sucking the life out of the Black Stars during the recent Afcon in South Africa.

"The Ghana Football Football Association (GFA's) attention has been drawn to allegations of prostitutes invading the camp of the Black Stars during the recent African Cup of Nations campaign in South Africa," the statement started.

The body also went on to "state emphatically that the allegation is false and has no basis in fact", going on to explain how they had "put in place strict security measures around the team to ensure that all players and officials were under constant watch to avoid such issues at all times during the competition."

The statement mentioned that the FA "are very satisfied with the output of the state security officers attached to the Black Stars as well as the strong assistance they got from the South Africa state security agencies protecting the team."

Indeed, the governing body pointed out that "the team has a strict code of conduct and any player found guilty of breaking any of the codes would have been dealt with severely."

It defended the "the players' commitment to adhering to the laid-down laws of the team before and during the tournament", describing their adherence as "unquestionable and at no point in time was any player found guilty of entertaining unwanted guests."

The FA reiterated that the "Black Stars are ambassadors of our dear nation and the GFA remains committed to ensuring that players who present the nation always behave responsibly on and off the field to serve as worthy role models to children worldwide."
