Earlier reported that a former Executive President of AngloGold Ashanti Limited, Sir Sam Esson Jonah, has disclosed that Ghana's government has no share in the company.

Giving a breakdown of how the country lost all its shares in AngloGold Ashanti, the renowned business executive said the first sale of the company's shares occurred in 1994 when Ghana sold 30% of its shares.

He explained further that the remainder of its 55% share was sold after the company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

"…..Currently, as we speak, it (government) has zero equity interest in AngloGold Ashanti. The Ghana government had 10 percent in the mines, like Obuasi etc, but as the company that merged, the Ghana government has zero per cent of AngloGold Ashanti, which is a shame because we sold," he said.
