Ghana’s new government is trying to track down more than 200 cars missing from the president’s office, a government spokesman has said.

The ruling party counted the cars a month after taking power following victory in December’s elections.

After previous transfers of power, state-owned cars have been seized from officials who did not return them.

A minister in the former government said the implied allegation of wrongdoing by his colleagues was false.

Presidential spokesman Eugene Arhin told the press that officials could only find:

  • 74 of the presidency’s 196 Toyota Land Cruisers
  • 20 of the 73 Toyota Land Cruiser Prados
  • 11 of the 24 Mercedes
  • two of the 28 Toyota Avalons
  • two of the six BMWs.
