Former Heart of Lions player, Kwame Bonsu jailed in Sweden for rape & assault

A Ghanaian footballer, Kwame Bonsu, in Gävle, Sweden, has been sentenced to two years in prison for raping and assaulting his wife.

After serving his sentence, 22-year-old Kwame Bonsu, who played for the Gefle IF club, will be expelled from the Scandinavian country where he has lived since 2013, Gävle District Court said.

Gefle on Friday said Bonsu was dismissed from the team with immediate effect. According to court documents seen by The Local he will also have to pay 122,600 kronor ($14,000) in compensation to his wife, who is a Swedish national.

The  former Heart of Lions midfielder first met her in 2014 when he was playing in the southern Swedish city of Mjölby. They married the following year. A few months after the wedding he signed a transfer to the town of Gävle, located about 300 kilometres away from Mjölby.

Bonsu’s wife had wanted him to stay to continue his studies. The victim said the rape and beatings took place in the couple’s apartment during an evening in November 2015 when he had refused to let her out.

Bonsu repeatedly denied the charges, but testimony from his wife’s relatives led the court to believe the victim’s version of events. His lawyer has appealed the sentence, reports Gefle Dagblad.
