'It Is Not A Big Deal' - Ras Mubarak Explains Why He Married His Cousin (Video)

Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak has finally broken silence over his controversial marriage to his cousin.

According to him, his marriage to his cousin is not incest as many Ghanaians think it to be.

In an interview Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr FM, monitored by Mintah.net, “incest is when you’re married to your direct sibling,” he defended himself.

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,” he added.
