Mercedes found 40 years after rich man hid it over fear govt may seize it

A Mercedez Benz reportedly belonging to one Alhaji Agyaa, a rich Ghanaian man in the 70s-80s, has been discovered after about 40 years of it being hidden in a garage.

In a post on famous sports journalist, Saddick Adams’ Twitter handle, it is indicated that the discovery was made at Techiman, the capital of Techiman Municipal and the Bono East Region of Ghana.

Those who grew up in the area knew Alhaji Agyaa to be very rich, popular and the only millionaire who could acquire this Mercedes in the area.

See the post below:

Alhaji Agyaa is said to have hidden the car from the ruler at the time, Ft Lt Jerry John Rawlings who had an eagle eye on anyone who was excessively rich to ensure that they were not using the state’s money.

A special man-made metal garage was built by Alhaji Agyaa to hide the car and it has been kept untouched since that time until now.

The car was reportedly popularly called Alhaji Agyaa Benz at the time as it used to be a moving monument that townfolk always talked about in those days.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a translator at the state funeral service of late Tanzanian president, John Pombe Magufuli, which took place on Monday, March 22, had a moment to remember.

The light moment occurred during South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa’s speech at the Jamhuri Stadium in Dodoma.

His words were wrongly translated, leading to laughter from those who understood the difference.

At some point in his tribute to the late, Ramaphosa noted Magufuli was not a great traveller and did not like flying as much and preferred staying at home.
