In other news, veteran Ghanaian actress, Maame Dokono, has dispelled claims by Abigail Rawlings, a woman claiming to be the daughter of former president Rawlings, that she knows her.
Abigail Rawlings made headlines when she popped up from nowhere to say that she is Rawlings’s first child but had been hidden for various reasons.
She mentioned that in those days, she approached some key NDC members, including Maame Dokono, who advised her to go into hiding otherwise she would be killed.
Abigail claimed that Maame Dokono gave her money to ‘vanish’ and go back to her mother, a Togolese.
