Former Chief Justice of Ghana Sophia Akuffo has expressed her frustrations over bribery allegations made against a Supreme Court judge by Asawase legislator, Muntaka Mubarak.
Muntaka had claimed that a Supreme Court judge made an offer through a phone conversation to a member of the NDC caucus in Parliament to vote for former Speaker Mike Oquaye during the Speakership contest.
Speaking on the issue, Mrs Akufo told Joy FM, “I am upset at the very thought that, that kind of accusation will be made. I don’t like accusations like that. It is like throwing a bucket of dirty water at people and you were aiming at somebody but you just threw it and it dirties everybody.
“There are 17 people you have defamed in that causal manner but you are talking about only one person so there are 16 people who have been wrongly done by.”
Meanwhile Muntaka Mubarak has assured of his readiness to back his claim with evidence if need be.
