PHOTO: Because Of Politics And Votes Part II – Dr Mahamudu Bawumia Pounding Fufu Edition

1 min

That didn’t take long for  a reply to arrive. GC posted just over a half hour ago about a photo going round showing Accra Mayor Alfred Oko Vanderpuye, currently standing for Parliament, braiding people’s hair and ‘driving’ banku just to gain some street cred and pick up votes.
Mingling with the ‘common people’ during election time to create the illusion of being ‘one of them’ is one of the oldest tricks in the politician’s playbook, and despite everybody knowing about it, fall for it anyway.
The NDC folk probably aren’t happy with our post about Oko and before you can say jack, we have this photo of Bawumia in our inbox.
The NPP vice Presidential candidate is seen pounding fufu, or at least pretending to pound fufu for a photo, basically engaging in the same kind of politics.
We get it, Ghanaian politicians are all the same – in fact, politicians everywhere are all the same. Hillary Clinton would do and say anything just to get people to vote for her.
