Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has been criticized by many Ghanaians following his marriage to his own cousin.
Many critics wonder why upon all the beautiful ladies in Ghana, Ras Mubarak will go in for his uncles’ daughter.
However, in an interview Starr FM, monitored by Pataapa.com, the MP for Kumbungu defended his decision.
“incest is when you’re married to your direct sibling,” he he humorously stated.
Mr Muburak is related to the Asawase MP, Muntaka Mubarak and he is married to his daughter.
According to him, most Ghanaian societies have come to accept and embrace it.
“I am okay being married to my cousin. But there are a lot of such intermarriages in Ghanaian societies. It is not a big deal, especially for Dagombas.
“I had a conversation with a relative about looking to settle down and he said, I shouldn’t look further and that all my uncles and aunties have wonderful children who are also well educated. The rest is history,” Mr Mubarak added.
