Black Queens unpaid bonuses to be settled before Zambia qualifier – Gifty Oware-Mensah

The Chairperson of the Black Queens Management Committee, Gifty Oware-Mensah, has assured the players will be paid their due bonuses before their game against Zambia this month.

Ghana will face Zambia in the third round of qualifiers for the 2024 Olympic Games in a two-legged game with the first meeting set for February 23.

The Black Queens are aiming to qualify for the Olympics for the very first time after securing a return to the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON).

However, the players are yet to be paid their promised bonuses from the qualifiers with each player said to be owed an amount between $7,500 and $10,000.

Speaking to Joy Sports in an exclusive interview, Oware-Mensah, who is also the GFA Executive Council member revealed talks have taken place between the involved stakeholders.

“For some time now, they [the Black Queens] have been getting their due. The difference is that we are owing Black Queens and Black Princesses and we have already spoken to them,” she said.

“Myself, the President of GFA, Kurt Okraku, the Minister [Mustapha Ussif] and the Ministry of Youth and Sports have spoken and they have made promises to us that we are going to get these monies for these girls before we go into our next match.

“We are very hopeful and we believe what the Ministry has said.”

The Black Queens have won all but one of their games since Nora Hauptle was appointed as head coach of the team in 2023.
