If Ayariga is saying that people give birth to albinos because they have sex with women in their menses, then we need to ask Bukom Banku if he is having sex with a woman in her menses or his father did so.
That was comedian Derick Kobina Bonney known on stage as (DKB) speaking on Viasat 1’s Morning Show.
By this, DKB meant that Bukom Banku is now an albino. His remarks came in connection with claims by the founder and leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga that albinos are as a result of women who get pregnant in their menses.
On Accra-based ClassFM, Mr Ayariga was contributing to discussions on discrimination against Persons Living with Albinism, as well as recent fears expressed by such persons in Ghana that they risked being targeted for ritual murder by politicians to enhance their electoral fortunes in this year’s elections.
I did some survey and I was told anybody can give birth to an albino, but the process is this way… If your wife is bleeding and in the process you are too hungry and you don’t want to wait until it’s over, and you decide to do the thing while she’s bleeding, in the process if she gets pregnant – you know some [women] can get pregnant even while bleeding – that is when that particular child [albino] is born. That’s what I’m told, because of the process of blood [flow]. So, if in that process it happens that there are some women who are too fertile even as they bleed, [then they can give birth to an albino]
In recent times, NsromaMedia.Com observed that Bukom Banku has been ridiculed in the media for bleaching, something that DKB call is referring to as albinism in disguise.
