Gizelle Yazji, the woman believed to have had an illicit relationship with former President Kufuor, has fired back at the ex President, insisting that Mr. Kufuor fathered her set of twins during his term of office.
Gizelle Yazji, a self-confessed paramour of ex President Kufuor, made headlines in 2006 when she claimed to be the mother of a set of twin sons for the ex President. She insisted that she had negotiated for the purchase of a Hotel for the President on his instructions, adding that she and the president’s son had been in a meeting with the owner of the building and that she had done most of the talking.
Gizelle Yazji further accused Mr. Kufuor and his family of setting up offshore companies and opening bank accounts in some countries.
Although, he was cleared by CHRAJ of all the allegations in 2006, Mr. Kufuor never commented publicly on the matter until Tuesday, August 10 2010, when he emphatically denied the long-standing allegations by Ms Yajzi.
However in an interview with Accra based Radio Gold on Wednesday, August 11, the Iraqi-American citizen hit back at the ex president, insisting that Mr. Kufuor was a promiscuous man who, apart from fathering her twins, 7 years ago also had affairs with several other women on daily basis.
“He is very promiscuous, for example I knew that he had a relationship with some woman who worked with him. He did it every day; I think the only woman who did not have a relationship with him was his wife, because she was too old for him.” She said. According to Ms. Yazji, Mr. Kufuor’s promiscuous habit even forced his wife, Theresa to ask for divorce some time ago.
She denied ever having any business dealings with former Finance Minister Osafo Marfo on the Hotel Kufuor saga, although she said the former Oda MP knew about her pregnancy for Mr. Kufuor.
