Miscaptioned


Origin

A photo of senior minister Osafo Marfo and a lady on a plane has gone viral on social media. Several news platforms have reported that the 78-year-old Minister was travelling with his sidechick.

The photo popped up a few hours after a video chat of National Security Minister Kan Dapaah and an unknown lady leaked online.

Investigation by Asembi.com has unravelled that the lady in the photo with the senior minister is a well-known interpreter who travels with government officials to assist them with interpretations, usually with the Chinese language.

So reports that the minister was on a romantic trip is false as the photo in question has been miscaptioned.
