Victoria Lakshmi Hamah is a National Democratic Congress politician in Ghana.


In the 2012 general election, she unsuccessfully contested the Ablekuma West constituency parliamentary seat.[1]

She served as Deputy Minister of Communications under the John Dramani Mahama administration until she was fired on Friday, 8 November 2013 due to an audio recording purported to be hers.

Leaked Tape[edit]

An audio tape of the former Deputy Minister was heard telling an unnamed friend that she won't quit politics until she has made at least one million US Dollars (US $1m).[2][3] The conversation also made mentions of other public officials and politicians linked to all kinds of corrupt practice.[4]
