However, the lawmaker in a Facebook post Monday, disputed the claims, saying he has only one wife.
Ras Mubarak posted:
“… “I’ve just woken up to news that I married an additional wife yesterday. Let me put it on record that – though I am unapologetically a believer in polygamy and my religion, and my proud Dagbon tradition and culture permit polygamy, – I just remarried yesterday after my wife then, packed out and sued for divorce a few weeks before the 2016 election.
While we appreciate the media interest in reporting what is news, we wish to encourage the media to report what is factual. Mrs. Huseina Mubarak, – my new and only wife – and I, are very grateful to colleagues from the NDC and NPP, friends, family and everyone who supported us in diverse ways.
According to reports, the new wife of the former Reggae presenter is a student nurse at the Tamale Nursing and Midwifery College.
