Margaret Simpson: Ghana’s finest heptathlete now sells cooking oil to make a living

Ghana’s heptathlete, Margaret Simpson who won Gold at the African Championship at Porto Novo in Benin 6 years ago, is yet to receive her prize money from the Ministry of Youth and Sports according to reports on Monday.

The sad story of Margaret is one that sends tears down the cheeks from anyone as the award-winning athlete has resorted to hawking and selling cooking oil on the streets of Ejisu in the Ashanti Region to make a living since that remains her only hope to feed the several mouths in her home.

In an interview on Kumasi-based Angel FM the athlete who is married with kids, cataloged how her incessant calls to the Ministry of Youth and Sports to demand her due has proven futile.

She broke down in uncontrollable tears as she recounts her ordeal in demand of unpaid allowances by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
