Ghana’s former president Jerry John Rawlings has rubbished claims that his mother, Victoria Agbotui, is dead.
Madam Agbotui “is alive, hale and hearty,” a statement from his office said.
The statement denied claims that the 99-year-old died as a result of illness.
He advised the general public to disregard such “unfortunate rumours making the rounds that Madam Agbotui” has passed on.
The former president has never failed to pay glowing tribute to his mother, who turns 100 years in a few months, whenever he is interviewed about his childhood.
