Actor and Media Personality Kwame Dzokoto has denied claims that the previous President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama gave him GHC 800,000 for 2016 election campaign.
There were reports that insinuated that the Radio personality who publicly supported the NDC was given GHC 800,000 for the 2016 election campaign but instead he set aside the cash and that prompted his inability to secure the seat.
Speaking to Kofi Adoma Nwanwani in an interview, Dzokoto, who seemed shocked by the reports indicating that “then John Dramani Mahama is rich”.
“The man was particular about me because he wished people will see the political side of me. So people think he was pushing in a lot. My mother was even shocked and worried for me because she realized I was using my own money to sponsor my campaign,” he said.
He however made it known that “friends came to help but whatever you do, you will spend some of your private funds in supporting your campaign”.
Aside from this, he said one thing that broke him was allegations of him having sexual encounters with the women’s organizer of his constituency.
