The Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, and Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has rubbished claims that she was impersonated in Parliament on Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
“Mr. Speaker, I was present in this house yesterday [Tuesday],” she insisted on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.
Sarah Adwoa Safo has been absent from Parliament for some time now following an extension of her leave which was granted by the President.
She has become the subject of public debate following allegations that she was impersonated during Tuesday’s proceedings in the House because the Majority side needed the numbers at all cost to approve the government’s 2022 budget, which they did despite the disapproval by the minority side.
The controversy was deepened by the fact that videos of images of a woman believed to be the Dome Kwabenya MP from Tuesday’s proceedings in parliament went viral.
In the video, the woman was seen wearing a nose mask, leaving the chamber right after the headcount which led to the approval of the budget statement.
