Leaders demand answers over World Cup exits

The presidents of Cameroon and Ghana have ordered official inquiries into the poor performances at the World Cup.

Ghana's president John Mahama said he wanted a commission of inquiry to get to the bottom of his country's early exit.

Both countries campaigns were overshadowed by strikes over money, something FIFA has said must never happen again.

Cameroon players refused to board their expensively hired charter jet for almost 24-hours as they squeezed more money out of their federation, while Ghana's government this week flew some $3-million in cash to Brazil to appease their striking players.

Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng were also expelled from Ghana's World Cup squad for disciplinary problems.
