Takoradi “Missing Pregnant Woman” granted GH¢50,000 bail after pleading not guilty

Published

on

Twenty-eight-year-old Josephine Panyin Mensah has pleaded not guilty after being arraigned before a Takoradi Harbour Circuit Court A on Monday, September 27 and has been granted a GH¢50,000 bail with two sureties.

After the resident of Columbia, a suburb of Takoradi failed to return home from her routine dawn walk on Thursday, September 16, her husband, Michael Simmons, lodged a formal complaint with the police about the incident.

The police, therefore, issued an alert for her search.

Calls later to her mother for ransom heightened fears that she has been kidnapped. She was, however, found at Tulano, a suburb of Axim, on Tuesday, September 21 but without her ‘baby’.

It later turned out, precisely on Friday, September 24, that she had faked both the pregnancy and the kidnapping in order to “satisfy” her husband after suffering a miscarriage just four months into the pregnancy.

Before then, Western Region Minister Kwabena Otchere Darko Mensah had stirred controversy, openly disputing the pregnancy but confirming the kidnapping.
On Friday, she is reported to have confessed in front of her mother, the police, and a neutral witness that she was without pregnancy after a series of tests at the Axim Government Hospital, Takoradi Hospital, where she last visited on Friday, May 21, and Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital proved negative.

But led by five lawyers, working pro bono, in her first appearance in court, Josephine pleaded not guilty to charges of putting fear and panic in the public and deceiving public officials.

She appeared calm with her tummy flattened as lawyer Fiifi Buckman led her plea.

Presiding judge His Honour Michael Cudjoe Ampadu, therefore, granted her bail at GH¢50,000 with two sureties and adjourned the case to Thursday, October 14.

When someone dies, you now hear the wicked, hypocrite DJs playing his songs — Roo Dube vex over Nana Ampadu’s death

Published

on

Reggae artiste, Roo Dube has lambasted Ghanaian DJ’s with the accusation that they only wait for Ghanaian musicians to die before they celebrate them.

According to him, the passing of the legendary highlife musician Nana Kwame Ampadu saw almost all DJs who did not play his songs when he was alive now abusively play his songs on radio stations.

“When the artiste dies, switch to all radio stations in Ghana. You will hear of the music of the deceased.

“You mark this, if the confirmation comes that Nana Ampadu is dead, all radio stations will play his songs tomorrow. If Ghana was to be another country, the music of Nana Ampadu should be able to feed his son and grandchildren for all their lives. But it is not the case in Ghana,” Roo Dube lamented in an interview with Modernghana Entertainment.

The Reggae artist insists that radio stations and DJs in Ghana are so wicked and should even be partially blamed for the death of some of the old musicians.

“These stations don’t care about us the musicians. Ghanaian DJ’s are very wicked. If they continuously played the music of old musicians, it could even encourage people to go and donate to our musicians who may be in need of money or support one way or the other,” he stated.

Expecting radio stations in the country to play songs of Nana Ampadu on Wednesday in his memory, Roo Dube says if he was a family member of the deceased, he would have sued the radio stations playing his songs.

He stressed that it’s about time Ghanaian stations and DJs followed in the steps of Nigeria by prioritizing local music over foreign music.

He said rarely will one hear of Ghanaian music on radio stations when he or she travels to Nigeria or any other part of the world, but it is not the same in Ghana.
