“I will be vindicated; I know what happened. Some things on the tape are lies; what I said, I said the truth and I will say it again anywhere. But I’m not ready to discuss it here as I said, because it’s before a committee. And I hope, we will wait until the committee comes out with their report, then everybody will know the truth,” COP Mensah (rtd) sounded confident.
