A slippery character…This is President Mahama, a serial womanizer who had to be warned to stop his 'playboy ways.' He has admitted it is tempting to see beautiful ladies. His father, a polygamist had over nineteen children with different women.
Against this background, we don’t expect Mr. President to be different. But he is wasting our scare national resources on women. He has been showering his mistresses with expensive cars and houses in home and abroad.
The danger to Ghana is not POLYGAMY, which is an African culture but a citizenry capable of entrusting a pathological womanizer like him with the Presidency. President Mahama is evidently stealing what belongs to the poor with his financiers and numerous mistresses by that lifestyle.
He has been involved in extra-marital affairs that apparently resulted in a string of children outside his marriage. There is controversy over the number of children that he has actually fathered, including the Dansoman girl. Honestly, the President does not know the number of children he has now – the same way a reckless driver will not be able to tell the number of accidents he has been involved in. There is this case about some children whose Mum is a member of the Presbyterian Church. Even when the Church threatened to write to the former President on his irresponsibility in not taking care of children he had fathered with the woman, the President began face-saving measures for a time and up till date has stopped taking care of the children. This is apart from the girl at Cantonments. His secondary school house master paints a picture of a man who 'had an eye for the ladies' and, according, to his bully at Achimota School, Ezra Mahama had to be warned several times to stay away from girls at the school. His father was giving him money for discos, Mahama even wrote that in his book “My First Coup d’état.”
The President has 'been running around with several girls since divine intervention handed him the Presidency, a ‘youth’ at age 54. When cautioned about his playboy ways by Mr. Rawlings, the President replied that he would "try" to stay away from the girls.
His wife once allegedly stated that the President is wild when it comes to chasing women. It is common knowledge that he is in bed with a former MP and Minister.
He is further described as 'a slippery character', and his relationships with 'several women' are discussed and investigated, while questions about his 'marital problems' are repeatedly raised.
The President recently confirmed having fathered several children out of wedlock but Mrs. Lordina Mahama understands that he can’t keep his zip close. Mahama sees no problem about having children out of wedlock. No wonder, he has been the main conspirator in all the corruption cases and bribery.
The moral crusade began by the National Democratic Congress has just began. More anon…
