The Ministry of Youth and Sports has cleared all bonuses owed the Black Queens ahead of their crucial qualifier against Zambia.

Joy Sports gathers the Ministry has now cleared all outstanding bonuses owed to the games from their previous three qualifiers.

The Black Queens had been owed bonuses for games against Benin, Rwanda and Namibia which were all played last year.

Ahead of the game against Zambia, there were reports of unrest in the team’s camp due to the unsettled bonuses.

The development also led to public outcry demanding payment for the Queens who have been on an excellent form since Nora Hauptle took over as head coach of the team.

The Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif, Ghana FA President, Kurt Okraku and Gifty Oware-Mensah visited the team on Wednesday night to have a dialogue after which their per diems were paid before the bonuses were eventually paid.

They were issued cheques for GH₵85,000 each, the equivalent of $7,500 at the Bank of Ghana rate.

Ghana faces Zambia in the first-leg encounter on Friday, February 23.

The Black Queens are two ties away from a first-ever appearance at the Olympic Games with this year's edition set for Paris, France.
