Joy News’s investigations have uncovered how the Ghana Bauxite Company (GBC) evaded the payment of penalty for overloading haulage trucks to the tune of more than 90 million dollars over a period of six years.
This was done in connivance with some officials of the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA) who operate the weigh-bridges. After a year-long investigation, Joy News’ Kwetey Nartey found that the state lost 22 million dollars in 2017 year alone.
