Tarkwa has been thrown into a state of shock and despair after Medeama owner Moses Armah declared his intention to sell the club.

Tarkwa has served as the home of the two-time FA Cup holders and provided several business opportunities for the people.

The news has not gone down well for the people of the mining town who have have made frenetic effort to talk him out of his latest decision.

The business magnate feels ‘demotivated’ to continue running the Ghana Premier League club.

Armah is particularly peeved after his midfielder Kwesi Donsu was overlooked by Black Stars coach Avram Grant for this month’s World Cup qualifiers.

He has given the first option to sponsors Goldfields Ghana Darmang and Ghana Manganese Company (GMC) so the club remains in the community.

Armah acquired Kumasi-based Kessben Football Club in 2010 and then moved the team to Tarkwa for their Ghana Premier League matches.
