British author ranks Vicky Hammah among 'craziest politicians'

Victoria Hammah has been ranked one of the 'craziest African
politicians' in a new book published recently in London.

The former Deputy Communications Minister was sacked after a leaked
tape revealed her infamous plan to make $1 million before quitting
poli­tics.

The book titled, "The Fat Boy With The Bomb And 299 More Of The World
Craziest Politicians", was authored by Brian O'Connell with pictures
by Norm Chung, both based in Oxford, United Kingdom.

It was published by Myrmidon with ISBN 9781910183090. The
controversial book, published in November, is being sold for £12.99.

The fat boy is in reference to the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim
Jong- un, who has gained notoriety for human rights abuses, pushing
his impoverished country to the brink of war with its neighbours.

Ms Hamah was ranked alongside top politicians like Equatorial Guinea's
Presi­dent Teodoro Obiang Mbasogo; South Africa's firebrand, Julius
Malema and Zim­babwe's octogenarian President Robert Mugabe, as the 10
'craziest' on the continent today.

She is the only Ghanaian featured in the book.

'The Million Dollar Woman'
Of Ms Hamah, the book which subtitled her version as 'The Million
Dollar Woman', said "the former Deputy Minister of Com­munications who
wanted to bag $1 million wealth before leaving her job, is now better
known as a sex commentator and host of a show called 'Chocolate
Factory."

It continued, "Ghanaians reckon she's a beauty, or at least some of
them do. One publication calls her a 'Goddess of Beauty. The former
deputy minister of communica­tions may be down but not out. She got
booted out of government by President John Dramani Mahama when a
secretly recorded tape of her emerged in which she said she didn't
want to squabble with her boss because she had yet to bag $1 million
in her job."

The book said, "The scandal has been dubbed 'Vikileaks' in the local
media. The driver of the car in which she was when she made the
statement and who secretly recorded her was a cousin of the sacked
for­mer deputy communications minister. In November of 2013 the former
Ablekuma West parliamentary candidate of the gov­erning National
Democratic Congress was sacked."

Radio Interview

Quoting her recent appearance on Starr Fm, the author said Ms Hamah in
Septem­ber said on the radio station, "politics has no end; I'm in
politics; I'm a politician; I live for that."

According to the book, "She stays prominent in the media for both good
and bad reasons. She hosts Real Talk which is broadcast on TV3 and
Chocolate Factory which is played on Multi TV. Both some­times address
salacious sexual issues."

Complicated Love life

'"Iliere's also her complicated love life. In September 2014,
according to the Daily Guide, Hamah 'stormed the Dansoman Police
Station in Accra and reported her boyfriend, Richard Frimpong Dardo,
to the police after they had disagreed on an issue about sexual
intercourse. Victoria was said to have told the police that Dardo had
beat­en her up and stolen (from) her (an) unspec­ified amount of
money.'"

The book posited, "The paper further reported that Dardo claimed that
Hamah wanted him to perform a specific sexual act he wasn't prepared
to do and then berated him", adding, "Five days later the police
issued a warrant for Dardo's arrest on fraud charges relating to the
sale of six kilograms of gold but by that time the late night spat
over sex was forgotten and Hamah had a change of heart and stormed the
police sta­tion demanding his Release and proclaiming his innocence."

Other 'Crazy' Leaders

Apart from Presidents Mbasogo, Mugabe and Julius Malema, the former
ANC youth leader who left South Africa's ruling party to form Economic
Freedom Fighters (EFF), the book also captures Eritrea's President
Isias Afwerki; Democrat­ic Republic of Congo's President Joseph
Kabila, Uganda's President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as well as Nigeria's
President Goodluck Jonathan.

It also highlights the 'deeds' of current governor of Ekiti State in
Nigeria, Ayo Fayose, who was described as the man "who personally led
a gang of thugs that beat up judges," and Namibia's Epafras
Mukwiilongo who is the head of It also highlights the 'deeds' of
