Elmina Sharks strip Mensah off captaincy over NPP ‘Kalyppo’ craze

According to the player, he had the shock of his life when management of the club told him he will no longer be the captain and leader of the club days after pictures of him wearing an NPP shirt while sipping on Kalyppo went viral on social media.

The coach told me I will no longer be the captain of the side. I don’t know whether it is because of a picture I shared on my Facebook page?

“It wasn’t even like I was campaigning for [the] NPP. I was just with friends after an area kick-about game when they asked me to accompany them to an event. I was then handed the shirt to wear, so for me it was just friends having fun.

“But upon returning to the club after the event, they told me I will no longer be the captain,” Mensah told Takoradi-based Spice FM.
