I paid Komla Dumor’s school fees – Nana Konadu

nana-konadu-addressing-monmouthGhana’s former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has revealed she took care of all the tuition bills of late broadcaster Komla Dumor at the university level.

According to her, the ace British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) screen icon was her husband Jerry John Rawlings’ friend’s son and had to help him complete tertiary level education although she did not know him much then.

“I paid Komla Dumor’s fees at the university,” Konadu disclosed to Bola Ray on personality profile show Starr Chat on Wednesday.

The tough-talking ex-First Lady made the revelation when the issue of an infamous identification haircut case at the Castle – then seat of Ghana’s government – came up which saw Dumor interviewing her on the case.

It was alleged that one Selassie O’Sullivan-Djentuh, a former lover of Konadu’s first daughter Zanetor Rawlings was shaved by the military and locked in the Guard Room of the Castle over an altercation.

Mrs. Rawlings denied having a “hand in the case” but granted audience to Dumor, who was then with Accra-based Joy FM. However, she said the late journalist decided to focus on the latter part of the full interview which failed to present a true picture of their entire conversation.

“He is dead, so I don’t want to go further into that issue,” Konadu opined.
