Another lady, Maame Sintim has dropped a bombshell on the head of Ghana Bar Association (GBA) President Anthony Forson alleging he attempted to chop her too in exchange for a plane ticket.
One Kukuwaa Andam made the GBA President hot in a Facebook post in which she said she had been in a relationship with Mr. Forson for a while before she moved to the US to pursue her masters’ degree programme.
She said they stayed in touch via phone and emails and that at a point in time she contacted Mr Forson for help because she was struggling to fend for herself and fund her education.
She alleged that Mr Forson booked a hotel room, and that although she knew at the point that the meeting would result in sex, she was willing to do so than drop out of school.
She stated, however, that she planned to have sex with Mr Forson with a condom but it happened that he did not carry a condom with him.
According to Ms Andam, realising that there was no condom, she asked Mr Forson to allow her to go and get a condom “but he pinned me down and raped me.”
He told me to meet him at a hotel in Washington DC for the rent money. It was close to school exams but I went anyway. Remember that at this time we hadn’t actually had sex but I told myself that I would just close my eyes & do it with a condom (because I knew he was sleeping with many women) & then at least I wouldn’t have to drop out of school.
“As soon as I settled in, he asked for sex. I had already psyched myself up and so I asked him whether he had a condom. When he said no, I pleaded with him to allow me to at least go get a condom but he pinned me down & raped me… At one point I began to wince from pain because I wasn’t ready & he had forced himself on me but that didn’t stop him. Not even the tears that began to fall out of the corne[r]s of my eyes stopped him,” she narrated.
Enter New lady
But the new lady, Maame Sintim revealed that in her case, they met in a hotel room but she changed her mind and he said fine and allowed her to go.
Other streak of testimonies are emerging to paint the picture of a serial sexual predator. Many have said friends of Kukuwaa Andam May be making up stories to support her quest to bring down her alleged rapist to justice.
The GBA President in a statement issued on Monday by his lawyers, Beyou & Co stated that their client had not committed such an act against Ms Andam.
It said, “Mr Forson sincerely and emphatically denies that he has committed any such offence against Kuukuwa Andam. He maintains that the allegations are palpably false and in due course he will be vindicated.”
