Customers of gold dealership company, Menzgold Ghana Limited, say they will embark on a nationwide demonstration by the end of this October, to express their displeasure at the company’s failure to pay them the extra value on their investments as promised earlier.
According to the spokesperson of a group calling it self ‘Aggrieved Menzgold Customers’, Timothy Binob, the exact date for the demonstration will be announced at a press conference to be held later this week.
Mr. Binob explained that the customers all over the country are expected to take part in the demonstration.
Speaking to Citi News, he also said customers are yet to receive any official communication from the company on what percentage of the total value of gold traded will be refunded to them.
The aggrieved customers have demanded a fifty percent refund within four weeks, but Menzgold says it may be able to pay only a portion of what is being demanded.
“It is a nationwide demonstration, and Tarkwa and Kumasi will all be part. So we are liaising with them and all of them will also come with their buses. We will convey a press conference very soon maybe at the end of this week so we announce the date of the demonstration.”
“We have been promised by the firm and for several times they have not fulfilled their promises. They gave us a four week period to come on out with a percentage they will be paying, but none of the customers have received anything. No customers has received any money; not even a single one.”
