I had no kidney transplant – Mahama

President John Mahama has denied rumours making rounds that he was flown out of the country to have a kidney transplant in South Africa.

In a post on his personal Facebook page, the President who is currently in South Africa with his family stated that, “yes, I am in South Africa with my wife and children for a private visit, and it is an opportunity for me to spend some time with them.

I am not in hospital, I was not flown out for medical attention, and I have not had any kidney transplant.”

The President on Thursday traveled to South Africa for a private visit.

Below is the full press statement

My beloved brothers and sisters, my family and I take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas, and the very best of the yuletide.

Lordina, my wife, is sending out a Christmas Message in which she is encouraging all to look beyond our individual families and extend a hand of care and fellow-feeling to others who may be disadvantaged in one way or the other.

Yes, I am in South Africa with my wife and children for a private visit, and it is an opportunity for me to spend some time with them.

I am not in hospital, I was not flown out for medical attention, and I have not had any kidney transplant.
Our politics is becoming one that dwells on lies and deliberately concocted issues rather than what concerns our people.

I am hoping that the voice of the people of Ghana in the last elections will soon dawn on us to appreciate the fact that Ghanaians are indeed discerning.

Merry Christmas from me, John Dramani Mahama, your President.
