Board Chairman and Chief Executive, Herbert Mensah of Ghana Rugby has been suspended indefinitely for abuse of his office.

Mr James Nunoo, who is the Board Member and Vice President has been appointed as acting President and board chairman.

A special general meeting is expected to be held on June 8 2021 when a new board and President will be elected.

The Ghana Rugby Players Association (GRUPA) last month sent a nine-paragraph petition to the board, asking for Mensah’s removal for gross abuse of his office.

Mr Mensah, who is a former Asante Kotoko Board Chairman was accused of conflict of interest, stifling players from playing abroad, physically assaulting players and coaches, creating and funding the formation of rival players’ association among others.

He has been President of Ghana Rugby ever since he independently revived the sport more than ten years ago.
