Father, 42, engages in anal sex with 3-year old daughter

A 42-year old company driver Kwame Asiamah has allegedly had anal sex with his own 3-year old daughter (name withheld) at Asenua near Mamponteng in the Ashanti region.

The man who is currently on the run did not only subject his daughter to anal sex but had vaginal sex as well.

There is always blood stains anytime the little girl visits the ‘toilet’.

Explaining her daughter’s ordeal in an interview with, the mother of the victim, Emelia Asiamah who has since been incensed by the act, said she noticed that her daughter experienced pains anytime she attempts to walk or urinate.

According to her, upon interrogation, the kindergarten pupil disclosed that her father inserted his ‘manhood’ both in her vagina and anus when she the mother was not home.

She added that she was not surprised when her daughter told her of the ordeal because the husband in 2015 had anal sex with their second boy who was almost three years old.

Madam Emelia indicated that out of stigmatisation and fear, she refused to report the case to the police and even the family members.

The suspect later confessed engaging in anal sex with the child on a Kumasi-based Trust Tv after he claimed to have visited more than five deities in the region.

‘The incident happened two weeks ago, but when I questioned my husband about it, he denied and ran away from the house, claiming he couldn’t have had sex with his own daughter. I knew he was lying to me, I don’t know why the man I married has turned into a paedophile. My daughter has not been able to attend school since the incident, how can a father do this to his own daughter?, I thank God that he has publicly confessed, but I have reported the case to the police,’ she mentioned.

There are indications the case might die a natural death, as the victim’s mother is said to have taken an amount of GH¢1,000 as compensation from her husband’s hideout days ago.

Hole in heart baby supported by Stanbic Bank survives surgery

hole-in-heartA 7-month old baby, Elaine Esther Akosua Owusu, who was sponsored by Staff of Stanbic Bank has undergone a successful surgery in India.

Born with three holes – one large, two small – in her heart, Baby Elaine’s condition could not be treated in Ghana. Doctors recommended a surgery at Apollo Children’s Hospital in India, without which she would die in four months.

Staff of Stanbic Bank Ghana spearheaded a campaign to raise an amount in excess of $8,500 to support the cost of surgery to correct Elaine’s condition. That campaign also saw well-meaning Ghanaians contribute to the cause.

According to her doctors, Elaine underwent a successful surgery and is as fit as fiddle. She is however scheduled for periodic check-ups at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

“From the day she was brought from ICU, we saw a drastic change,” Abigail Amissah Owusu, Elaine’s mother recounted. “She has become a very happy and lively baby and now sleeps well and eats well. We are eternally grateful for this kind gesture from Stanbic Bank.”

According to Samuel Teye, Head, Human Capital, Stanbic Bank, staff of the Bank, saw the plight of little Elaine as a call to duty.

“The gesture was beyond the fundamental human needs; it was the need to support a life,” Mr. Teye said. “We are all very elated that the surgery was successful and Elaine can now live a healthy life.”

He added it will be great to see Elaine walk in the next few years, knowing that staff of the bank were part of a contribution to make her become what she wants to be in future – a cause he believes is worthy and self-rewarding.

Staff of Stanbic are committed to empowering the less privileged – a culture which is in tandem with Stanbic Bank’s principle of supporting and caring for the vulnerable.

They are also often encouraged to identify and contribute towards offering social support in education, sports development, the agricultural sector, poverty relief, health and environmental protection.

Reacting to concerns about alleged high consumption levels associated with such smart meters, Mr Ahorlu said research had revealed that a lot of people had poor wiring of their facilities which led to wastage of electricity.

He, therefore, assured customers that the ECG would engage the university about concerns of old wiring of residential buildings.

According to engineers, the smart meters were designed to detect any attempt to steal power, adding that an instant surcharge of 100 per cent would be imposed as penalty when one steals power.
Communications manager
The Communications Manager of the ECG, Mr Erasmus Kyere Baidoo, assured customers that the company had put measures in place to ensure that the exercise went on smoothly.

He encouraged customers to always deal with accredited staff of the company and take official receipts for any transaction involving the payment of cash.
