‘It’s an outright lie!’ – EC dismisses Jean Mensa coronavirus report
The Electoral Commission (EC) has denied reports its Chairperson Jean Mensa has tested positive for COVID-19.
A section of the media had alleged that Ms. Mensa had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
But a statement from the Commission said the publication is “an outright lie and a figment of the author’s warped imagination”.
According to the EC, its Chairperson is “well and at post”.
It, however, urged the public to disregard the story.
“We are therefore calling on the general public to disregard the lies and fabrications and treat the story with the contempt it deserves,” the statement said.
“The desires of her detractors will never succeed,” the statement concluded.
