A parliamentary candidate hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Afajato South constituency, Kafui Augusta Takyi has told Citi News that she will go ahead to contest for the parliamentary slot despite being confined in a wheelchair due to a medical condition.
Madam Takyi who was earlier reported to have suffered partial paralysis right after filing her nominations to contest for the NDC’s parliamentary primaries in the Afajato South explained that she had suffered the condition shortly after declaring her interest to contest again for the slot.
“I can understand my supporters who said I got ill after filing my nominations. It is because the next time they saw me [after declaring my intention], I was paralysed but I got ill earlier after declaring my interest to contest for the slot again,” Madam Takyi clarified.
She said, “the doctors are doing their best but I trust my God will heal me and I will contest and win”.
Augusta Kafui Takyi is the only candidate out of all five who contested the Afajato South Parliamentary primaries in previous elections against the incumbent, Madam Angela Alorwu-Tay who is still contesting in the upcoming primaries on August 24 2019.
