Face-saving or genuine remorse?

Embattled Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi Boateng has been spotted in a picture with some youth in NDC branded t-shirts.

In the picture that has gone viral on social media, the founding member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is sandwiched between two men in NDC t-shirts, with another person sitting in front of him.

But there is a man behind them, wearing an NPP shirt.

Mr Ayisi Boateng came under fire after he said he would prioritise the needs of NPP members than other Ghanaians.

His divisive comments were widely condemned by civil societies, political opponents and religious groups. It triggered calls for his dismissal.

But he apologised after Foreign Affairs Minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey intervened in the matter following public pressure.
