I’ve Soft, Gentle Hands; Never Broken Fingers Before – Hanna Tetteh Hits Back

Former Foreign Minister Hanna Tetteh, who was accused of muscularly squeezing the hand of former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, has hit back at critics saying she has soft and gentle hands.

Ex-president John Rawlings at an NDC function at the weekend slammed Ms. Tetteh for among other things, squeezing the hands of Mrs. Rawlings at the independence square on March 6 in a manner that caused her to groan.

He questioned why Ms. Tetteh who he seems to be on a collision course with, would use her ‘heavily-built’ stature to intimidate his wife, who he described as “not fleshy”.

The claim by Mr. Rawlings sparked public outcry with most people condemning the former president for his utterances, especially considering the platform he used to vent his anger at the former minister.

Ms. Tetteh who is currently in Germany, was said to have granted an interview on the matter but she on Tuesday tweeted she has neither had any interview nor issued a statement on the matter, describing such report as “fake news”.

Replying to that tweet, one user humorously asked Ms Tetteh to give him a handshake as the one given Mrs. Rawlings during the 61st independence day celebration but she responded: “You’ll find out my hands are quite soft and gentle. They always have been”.

You’ll find out my hands are quite soft & gentle. They always have been. ?

She further said she has not broken fingers before when another user tweeted at her that he admired Ms. Tetteh’s strength in “breaking fingers”.

“Sorry to disappoint you, and at the risk of losing your admiration. I never have broken any fingers. I’m quite sure about that.
