Kufuor’s baby mama Giselle Yazji allegedly married to Venezuelan Prez. Hugo Chávez

By on

Madame Giselle Yazji, who became popular in Ghana during President John Agyekum Kufuor’s tenure in office as President of Ghana has popped up in international news.

This time it is no longer about former President Kufuor. 

A recent article published by the Washington Post titled “The Mysterious Madame Giselle“, the American daiy newspaper described her as a woman known to live a lavish lifestyle who claims she was “giving sotto voce advice to the Obama administration on Pakistan policy, and had the use of a White House office. She also said she’d been married to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez“.

“She told richly embroidered stories about going to Cuba with the ailing Chávez. What the doctor told Chávez as well as meeting Raúl Castro,” the article said.

The “mysterious Madame Giselle“, as the September, 19th 2017 article described her, quoted her as having allegedly being married to two world leaders and an adviser to the White House.

She reportedly earns a monthly income of $2.1 million, and has allegedly duped people of riches, without offering any results or concrete evidence of investments.

On one level, the saga of Madame Giselle is a story about, in no particular order, allegations by two neighbors who say they were swindled in an elaborate scheme to sell T-shirts to the Venezuelan army, a cash-stuffed envelope slipped under a doorway, a legendary bygone scandal involving the Colombian military and a woman known as “The Blonde,” an ongoing multimillion-dollar Colombian fraud case, and a supposed helicopter ride into Syria. But on another level, as illustrated in interviews and in hundreds of text messages obtained by The Washington Post, it’s a story about friendship and trust, about what we can make ourselves believe and how we can sometimes suspend disbelief when dreams are in sight” a portion of the article reads.

According to the most widely circulated newspaper in Wahington D.C, in the weeks since it “began examining the many lives of Madame Giselle, her activities have drawn the attention of investigators in the Montgomery County district attorney’s office, according to several people who have been interviewed by authorities. (The office declined to comment.)

Reached by phone recently, Yazji — who said she was in Colombia but planned to return to Maryland soon — issued a string of denials before abruptly hanging up. She denied boasting of a secret marriage to Sissi and arranging a call between the Egyptian leader and President Trump, and she brushed aside the allegations of the two neighbors in Maryland who say they were swindled by her. She did not respond when asked if she’d claimed to have a White House office. One of those neighbors has sued her, and she has responded in court documents by denying all allegations of wrongdoing.”

The article further claimed that though Madame Yazji “offered to make herself available for a sit-down interview” with the newspaper, she has however failed to respond to “requests to schedule the interview”, neither did she respond to “follow-up questions sent via email“.

She reportedly sent a “typo-filled email” threatening to sue if anything defamatory is published about her.

if you want to publish fake information given to you as a gossip from somebody ir neighbors and try to damage my name ease feel free to do it. I really don’t think that a responsible person would do that knowing that I will sue you and sue the newwspaper,” Madame Yazji fired back.
