Social media is burning with allegations that the first lady and gentleman and lady of Ghana, President Mahama and Lordina Mahama, are planning filing a divorce.
These allegations which trace back to years of allegations and rumors are bent on the perception that President Mahama has been unfaithful to his wife, having children out of wedlock.
Is President Mahama truly a womanizer?
During an interview with Africa watch magazine, President Mahama debunked claims that his infidelity resulted in him having children outside the bond of their marriage.
“There is this notion of me being a womanizer which is certainly not true. I have had children outside my marriage. But I am at peace with my wife. She understands the circumstances in which it happened, and I have been a responsible father to my children," Mahama maintained.
But Mahama's statement seems not to have gone down well with many a social media rumuor mongers:
Let's not rely on the rumours! Because close relatives to the Mahama family reveal in an interview with myradio360 that Lordina Mahama never walked out of her marital home as circulated on various whats-app platforms.
“Normally, we would have no need to join issues with these rumor mongers but for the need to allay the fears of those who might have been misled by their devious garbage, we are compelled to clear the air before this careless, utterly reckless, unethical and the abuse of social media becomes an epidemic,” the undisclosed source was heard stating.
