I don't own Afriwave Telecoms- Dr. Omane Boamah

The Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has debunked allegations by MP for Obuasi West, Kwaku Kwarteng that the ministry had fraudulently engaged Afriwave Telecoms to monitor international calls for auditing purposes.

According to  Kwaku Kwateng, his suspicions  stem from the fact that government had already contracted Subah Info Solutionfor the same job, resulting in a reduplication of contracts hence double- payment for the same job.

Dr. Omane- Bomah in response to the allegations, however, denied any such arrangement, maintaining that government has not contracted Afriwave Telecoms Ltd. to monitor international calls.
