Former Deputy Minister of Communications under the John Dramani Mahama led administration Victoria Lakshmi Hamah has expressed her worry over how the Ghanaian media is making it seem she has nothing better to offer than her well endowed backside.
Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana, the former appointee angrily said, “Yes I have big behind I love it… it is natural. I didn’t go to buy it. If people want to buy it that is their choice. Was Mahama appointing big buttocks? We must get serious”,
The staunch supporter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) wondered why the fourth estate of the relearn were not talking about her competence as a former student leader but discriminated against her primarily because she was a woman.
According to Victoria Hamah, “Every woman faces discrimination in politics but I think I faced multiple discrimination for other reasons. Probably because I was younger or maybe I was just attractive and people think you cannot be in a political power space”,
Ms. Hamah was sacked as a Deputy Minister of Communication in Ghana somewhere in 2013, barely 24-hours after a tape purported to be her was leaked and aired by several radio stations across the country.
Victoria Hamah on the leaked tape which was recorded by her cousin-driver was heard saying that the Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister, Nana Oye Lithur influenced the Justices that sat on the election petition case which affirmed President Mahama’s electoral victory.
Apart from vouching to bag US$1Million in politics, the young Deputy Minister was also heard denigrating her colleague Deputy Minsiter, Rachel Appoh, as an “ugly, unintelligent and egoistic” person who needlessly fought her boss – Oye Lithur – at the Gender, Children and Social Protection Ministry.
