Hannah Bissiw, a former minister under the erstwhile government of John Mahama, has said she is not bothered by attempts to shame her for being hairy.
In a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Adomonline.com, the former deputy minister for Agriculture said her detractors were part of the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) plan of mocking her and making her unpopular.
She is quoted as saying: "The NPP is very desperate, I am wonderfully and beautifully made by God. I am a proud hairy woman."
Bissiw's body-shaming attack comes in the wake of photos that went viral on Thursday, February 7, 2019, after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had led opposition parties in a protest against the government.
The photos had shown the NDC's national women's organiser in a way that political opponents had found amusing and a point of attack.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that the Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty held its 'Aagbe Wo' demonstration on the streets of Accra on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
Their motive, they said, was to draw attention of the government to the recent incidents of violence in the country, especially with regards the Ayawaso West Wuogon election on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
According to Adomonline.com, it is also intended to address issues of security in the country, which they claim threatens Ghana’s democratic credentials.
The Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty, comprises the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and the Ghana Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP).
