Controversial radio and TV presenter, Afia Schwarzenegger has once again found herself in another media headline, after she had a heated argument with former former Ghana Aids Commission Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah. Afia who is widely known for her harsh criticism had a tough time on radio with the former AIDS ambassador who released a statement on Sunday, January 17 to announce that she lied about her HIV status to protect her children.
In a u-turn to confess that she is indeed HIV/AIDS positive, Joyce requested His Excellency John Dramani Mahama to pay her the amount the state owed her when she was serving as an ambassador for the commission.
This issue did not settle down well with the controversial radio personality. Afia who sounded angry after she called Joyce on live radio expressed her disappointment in the manner she (joyce) is playing with minds of Ghanaians. The conversation became worst after Joyce could not convince the Okay FM presenter why government should pay her an amount she claims the state owed her 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 hanged up when she could not stand the heat anymore on Okay FM.
The Ghana AIDS Commission says it has been exonerated by the 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.
