Reacting to the allegations of vote buying, Hannah Bissiw said, ‘it was an insult’ for anyone to think that was what made her win the polls.

“I don’t want to believe there is something like that, it’s an insult…there was no vote buying here, it’s an insult to think that…,” she said in a quaking voice.

To her, the food and other drinks distributed at the congress by other aspirants don’t help them win.
