Outspoken radio and TV personality, Afia Schwarzenegger had a tough time on radio with former Ghana Aids Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah who released a statement on Sunday, January 17 to announce that ” I lied about my HIV status to protect my children. I test positive to HIV in the year 2007.”
In her u-turn to confess that she is HIV/AIDS positive, Joyce asked His Excellency John Dramani Mahama to pay her the amount the state owned her when she was serving as an ambassador for the commission.
“I therefore humbly request of him to pay me my compensation and my shelter which was agreed upon since Madam Angela has taken it away from me”.
Afia who sounded angry after she called madam Joyce expressed her disappointment in the manner she is playing with minds of Ghanaians. The conversation became worst after Joyce could not convince the Okay FM presenter why the government should pay her an amount she claims the state owns when she was an ambassador.
According to Joyce, she sees nothing wrong with the money she is demanding from government since a lot of government officials are spending tax payers money without giving reasons.
The two exchanged words for about five minutes until Joyce Dzidzor Mensah cut the line when she could not stand the heat anymore on Okay FM.
The Ghana AIDS Commission says it has been exonerated by confession of former AIDS ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah who now says is HIV positive.
The former AIDS Ambassador publicly denied her HIV positive status in December 2014. Her denial raised questions about how the Commission ascertained the HIV status of persons before it signs an infected person for anti-stigmatization campaigns.
Listen to Afia Schwarzenegger conversation with Joyce Dzidzor Mensah Monday morning on the Despite Group-owned Okay FM.
