Alleged ‘side-chicks’ of Ghanaian presidents who made headlines over time

Aside the popularity that comes with the presidential seat, there are low points also. Being a president means many people look up to you, basically, one becomes an icon in that position.

In that regard, their lives become literally the ‘concern’ of citizens. If it's for a worthy cause, you get to enjoy the fame and glory, but it’s a rather different feeling when people ‘nose’ into your life and bring up allegations from your past.

Ghana’s presidents in the fourth republic have been riddled with many alleged scandals, with regards to extra-marital affairs and infidelity, some of which may have affected their marriages and or exposed alleged ‘secret’ children among others.

We take a look at some of these alleged girlfriends and ‘side chicks’ of some Ghanaian presidents.

The one-time Economic Adviser to President Kufuor made headlines in Ghana around 2004 and 2005, as the media tracked controversies involving reports of her work with then-President Kufuor.

She was alleged to be his mistress and was said to have given birth to twins for him with a promise of returning to Ghana with the children, but that never happened.

Her allegations against President Kufuor however, were never substantiated.

Victoria Hammah

In November 2013, there were rumours Victoria Hammah, Deputy Communications Minister was the girlfriend of then president, John Mahama.

Known as the ‘Vickyleaks saga’ Victoria Hammah’s appointment was said to have been met with some discontent from many in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party because of allegations she was given the position by her alleged boyfriend, President John Mahama.

Although she claims to have respected John Mahama's decision, Hammah till date, says she wasn't given a fair hearing by the media.
