Popular broadcaster Afia Pokuaa, popularly known as Vim Lady has taken a swipe at critics who lambasted her following the President’s confirmation that the health Minister had indeed caught COVID-19.
It will be recalled that when news broke out a few days ago that the Health Minister, Honourable Kwaku Agyemang Manu had tested positive for COVID-19, Afia Pokuaa quickly debunked the assertions after she claimed to have spoken personally to the Minister.
However, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo in his eleventh COVID-19 related address to the country confirmed that the Minister had indeed contracted the virus and said he’s stable and responding to treatment.
Many people descended on the veteran broadcaster for peddling falsehood, asking her to show audio proof if she indeed spoke to the minister.
Reacting to the barrage of attacks, Vim Lady shared a screenshot of her call log indicating that she indeed received a call from the Minister after her earlier attempts to reach him had failed.
She wrote, “Called the minister a couple of times without answer to confirm the story that was making rounds. This was his return call to me. Let us use the same energy to WEAR OUR MASKS and protect ourselves”.
