Black Queens threatens to demonstrate over unpaid bonuses



The female senior national team, Black Queens has threatened to demonstrate against the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the outgoing government should they fail to pay their winning bonuses before they leave office on January 7, 2017.

The Black Queens represented the country in the just ended 2016 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations staged in Cameroon and finished third after losing a fiercely contested semi-final game against the hosts but rallied from the shocking defeat to pick bronze in the third and fourth play-off.

“We have call off our demonstration which was slated for today due to a dialogue between the Black Queens’ management committee and ministry of youth and sport’s top hierarchy.” Linda Eshun told the media.

“The Ghana FA has promised to do everything within their powers to ensure that the monies we are entitled to are paid with no further delay or else we will demonstrate against the youth and sports ministry and the government.

“Some of us are breadwinners in our family and it’s so worrying that after every national assignment, we have to beg for monies due us,” she added.

It is believed that the government owes the Black Queens $25.000.
