The Gizelle Yajzi ‘Secret Tape’
…PART ONE OF TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDING OF HER ENCOUTNER WITH TOP GHANAIAN JOURNALIST ON HER ALLEGED TWINS!
*EGBERT FAIBILLE (EF): Look, Madam, what I am looking for…it is a very good story you have given me. I want to do a story that will ensure that, you see, uh…
*GIZELLE YAJZI (GY): You can wait for me, one moment, please? One moment because Madam is calling me, one moment, one moment.
*EF: I will wait, I will wait, Ok… I don't know if there is a problem with my telephone?
*GY: No, no, no, Madam called me and I pushed the wrong button.
*EF: Oh, you pushed the wrong button, ok. So what is the agreement? Because you see, what you are asking me to do is a very very serious….
*GY: They have seen her, right? They have seen her?
*EF: Oh, yes, they have seen her. As for that one there is evidence that they have seen her. But, you see, I don't' have the evidence…
*GY: Everybody knows her at the hotel?
*EF: I have been working very hard, you don't know. I have even traveled outside Accra to go and check because you said she traveled somewhere to the Accra Plains, all that. I have gone to ask the villagers about those things and they said yes, yes, they know her, she has come there twice, and all those things, so…
*GY: More than twice, I think.
*EF: So I know what I am talking about, I know what I am talking about but now the difficulty….
*GY: Then why such a big secrecy? She is not uh…
*EF: You mean the secrecy? No, I think she is a very powerful woman like you yourself said so people say they know her but they do not know her name.
*GY: Who is powerful?
*EF: Your Madam?
*GY: Oh yeah.
*EF: Yeah, so now you see, that is the problem. I have done the story but now the problem I have is the names. For example, has the President been informed about the children?
*GY: Oh, yes.
*EF: Has he named them?
*GY: (Brief laughter) Yes.
*EF: He has named them?
*GY: She (Madam) was talking to him yesterday, last night and asking me about the two. I was near to her.
*EF: Oh, Ok, and you don't know the names of the children?
*GY: They talk everyday.
*EF: Oh, Ok, you don't know the names of the children?
*GY: Surely, I know them.
*EF: Ok, if you can give me the names?
*GY: But I cannot tell them.
*EF: When were they born in April, what is the date in April? Because you see those are small, small bits that would make my story believable.
*GY: Look, something I told you it was wrong? I told you that I am not going to give you the names.
*GY: Right? I told you that?
*EF: Yes, you told me that.
*GY: I told you that everybody knows her there.
*GY: And she was very kind with everybody. She is very kind with everybody. I know because I have seen her…
*EF: When is she coming to Ghana?
*GY: I don't know. I didn't hear anything from her for now. You know she travels all over the world and now for this time I think she is not going to go.
*EF: She is not going to come to Ghana?
*GY: Not for now, after election, may be.
*EF: After election then she will come to Ghana?
*GY: Yes, sure.
*GY: Because you know she is a very smart woman.
*EF: Yes, that is right but you know…
*GY: She knows what she is doing.
*EF: Yes, that is right, uh! But have you contacted The Palaver yet, and are they willing to do it?
*GY: No, I didn't.
*EF: Oh, Ok, because I was even scared that you were going to contact them. I don't want you to give it to anybody. I am going to do it but you see the truth is that I need something very concrete to enable me; when I do it and I am talking on radio and defending the story, I can even challenge the President and everybody and they will all come begging me. But for now the way I am going to do it…
*GY: One thing you cannot say is that it was a woman who told you because he would know.
*EF: No, no, no, I won't say that, I will never say that.
*GY: And you see; because may be she (Madam) will be upset that somebody from her side is the one…
*EF: I promise you that I will never disclose my source. What I just want to do…
*GY: No, no, I don't care because she will be upset, look, she will be upset with the people in the entourage of the President.
*GY: Because she will know that somebody form them has talked, like Gabby, for example.
*GY: Because he (Gabby) is the only one who has the pictures.
*EF: But you too you don't want me to speak to Gabby, this is the difficulty…
*GY: No! But you think you should do that?
*EF: No, no, no, I haven't done it yet
*GY: It is quite clear it is not a smart move. If I am in your place I will never do that. He sold the pictures and he is going to talk to you?
*EF: Well, no, he won't talk…
*GY: What? You want the President to hang him?
*EF: He won't talk?
*GY: He is not going to talk to you.
*EF: Yeah, I know that. I won't even talk to him. I haven't even met him before actually. I just know his name.
*GY: Look, this Gabby, this Gabby, he can sell anything for money.
*EF: Well, I don't know about that.
*GY: Because if he sold me the pictures, uh?
*EF: Ah! Anyway, But uh, yes, well, you, what I will do is that I will do my paper…
*GY: But if you talk to him he is not going to recognize because you are from there.
*EF: Ok, ok, ok
*GY: He is not crazy?
*EF: (Brief laughter) I haven't met him before anyway so I do not know him. *GY: I don't know him, I don't know him. *EF: Oh, ok, you don't know him too? *GY: But you know I feel like bad that the President has somebody like him near him. It doesn't matter if he told me you know, but it is bad.
*EF: Yeah, uh, uh…
*GY: And I am not pleasing any… you know, Madam is not going to be affected about anything.
*EF: So, you know what? The truth is that we have a deal for Monday; the publication will be on Monday, the publication will be on Monday.
*GY: Ok, we will see.
*EF: Yes, so I will be adding bits and pieces…
*GY: If you are taping me, if you are taping…
*EF: I am not taping you.
*GY: Oh, because you are not going to…because the phone I use, you don't know not even if I am a woman because we have phones that they change our voices.
*EF: Oh, ok, I am not taping you. Me, I do not have a tape recorder.
*GY: And you know that this phone exist, right?
*EF: Yeah, yesterday when you were calling me I was driving that is why there was so much noise.
*GY: Look, but I am telling you, look Madam is a very, very very old professional and very rich person.
*EF: Oh, so she will kill me?
*GY: No, she doesn't do that.
*EF: Ah, but why do you…
*GY: They will tell you that she is a very good lady. If she has never said nothing about the boys, you think she
