A wave of speculation around the health of Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has hit the public and on social media. The speculations are that Mr. Ofori-Atta may have undergone a liver transplant on his recent trip to the USA.
Whatsup News cannot yet independently verify these reports of the health condition of the Finance Minister, but it appears to be gaining momentum on social media.
About five months ago, Ken Ofori-Atta was rushed to the USA for treatment, in what the official narrative described as treatment for complications from an alleged COVID-19 infection.
However, the latest issue about his health status was sparked by a horrific picture of his bloated face as captured by cameras at the ongoing 76th Session of the UN General Assembly.
The Finance Minister who has been in the thick of major corruption scandals is looking radically different from his recent public appearance when he delivered the mid-year budget statement.
In the latest pictures, he was donning his characteristic white robe, but his cheeks had ballooned to twice their original size and his eyes were almost covered in flaps of extra flesh on his face.
He had since stayed low profile until the mid-year budget and now that his scary-looking pictures are emerging.
It is unclear if the embattled minister is suffering any serious health conditions, but medical experts who have seen the photographs think that kind of sudden weight gain on his face is not normal and could be a sign of a serious underlying health condition bothering the Finance Minister.
