Concerned members of political party NDC have sent a stern warning to Afia Schwarzenegger for her distasteful comments about Hon. Rachel Appoh, the former MP for Gomoa Central Constituency.
The group claim that Afia Schwarzenneger has said that the former MP is in a relationship with celebrity Elikem Kumordzi, to which the MP has categorically denied.
Read the full statement below:
We the undersigned concerned members of the National Democratic Congress of the Gomoa Central Constituency, wish to register our strong protest against Afia Schwarzenegger, formerly of Tv Africa, to desist from her acts of denegrading the personality of Hon. Rachel Appoh, former MP for Gomoa Central Constituency.
Our attention has been drawn to stories circulating on social media platforms attributed to Afia Schwarzenegger accusing the former MP of dating one Elikem Kumordzi.
Afia Schwarzenegger via an audio recording was also accusing Hon. Appoh of admitting to her an alleged intimate relationship with Elikem saying she was begging the boyfriend of her(Afia Schwarzenegger) to date her (Appoh), statement she (Appoh) has categorically refuted.
Our contention is that, Hon Appoh who is currently in court with his former wedded husband for an act of divorcing and forging of fake divorced documents on the part of the ex husband and that as a responsible and respected woman of her level and stature, demands all the necessary privacy as far as her relationship life is concerned.
We therefore believe strongly that, Hon Appoh as a matter of fact is not forbidden to renew his relationship life.
And then again, all the allegations by the latter is malicious and an attempt to tarnish the hard earned reputation of the former MP since Afia is believed to have been contracted by some perpetrators to bring her (Appoh) down to affect her bright career in the political arena.
Since we know how decent our former MP is and has emphatically denied the allegations, we therefore ask Afia to come out and render an unqualified apology to Hon Appoh to let a sleeping dog lay peacefully.
If she (Afia) fails to do so, we will still support Hon. Appoh in any action that would be taken against her.
As peace-loving and law abiding people, we will reserve unto ourselves all the rights under the armpit of the law and graciously caution Afia to refrain from such act of pettiness and enviness which in the past has ended her either for wrong reasons or confrontational situations.
Finally, we would like to use this medium to state in no equivocal terms our resolve as concerned members to do all we can to stand by Hon Rachel Appoh, our former MP and other personalities within the NDC fraternity in the Gomoa Central Constituency and beyond.
Thanks and God bless you.
