The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako otherwise known as Chairman Wontumi has revealed how much he spent in getting his gold necklace and Rolex gold watch.

Speaking on the KSM show, Wontumi, who claims to have more than 100 houses in the Ashanti Region said: “The chain is called Wontumi. The Rolex watch is diamond and gold fused together. I bought it 120,000 dollars. The chain is 200,000 USD…”

Many have been wondering the source of the wealth of the politician, with some attributing it to illegal mining (galamsey).
