Woman heckles Mahama; Prevents him from entering his car

An unidentified woman made a scene Thursday morning on live TV when she hugged and prevented Ghana’s president, John Dramani Mahama, from entering his vehicle after delivering his last State of the Nation Address.

The President was exchanging pleasantries with scores of people who surrounded his vehicle at the forecourt of Parliament House when the woman hugged him for some two seconds.

She then had tête-à-tête with him but just when the President gave the people his last wave before entering his vehicle, the woman held President Mahama’s shirt from behind for a second.

For inexplicable reasons, just when President Mahama decided to sit in his car, the woman again grabbed his right hand and pulled him from entering the car while she appeared to be crying.

Sensing an apparent security threat, the President’s security detail quickly shove the woman from President Mahama before he managed to enter his car and driven away.
