The company has been contracted by the Communication Ministry to design, development and implementation of a common platform for traffic monitoring, revenue assurance, and mobile money monitoring as well as fraud management.

President of IMANI Africa, Franklyn Cudjoe who alleges his life is now under threat, has questioned the integrity of Kelni GVG, a Haitian originated company, and the wisdom behind the project when Afriwave and Subah Info Solution, are already executing same.

XYZ News has learnt Mr Cudjoe has formally lodged a complaint with the Greater Accra Police Command.

Meanwhile, the Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful is expected to brief Parliament this week, but its not clear if the House will limit questions to the deal or other issues.

Over the weekend, former Minsiter for Power, Dr Kwabena Donkor raised fears, Parliament as a whole may not be able to effectively deal with the issues.

He suggested the issue should have been referred to the Committee level first.

But Deputy Communications Minister, George Andah insisted there was nothing illegal, adding that the contract in question will make savings for Ghana.
