Popular actress and NPP member,Grace Omaboe also known in public life as Maame Dokuno has expressed outrage after been charged by the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit of Ghana Police Service for exposing some inmate of her orphanage to danger.

It emerged on Wednesday that the popular actress is facing two charges of exposing children to danger and abuse of children after some of inmates of her Peace and Love orphanage at Adenta engaged in sexual acts.

Speaking to Gideon Ayeequye on World at Five, a News and Current Affairs programme on Happy Fm,a charged Maame Dukuno described the charges as trump up been used by her political opponents to tarnish her image.

She wondered why anybody would prefer charges against her for abusing children or allowing such acts to go on when it is well noted for her concern for kids.

Though she did not name any one she suspects is behind this propaganda, Maame Dokuno said it is part of attempts by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to get back at her for supporting Nana Addo in the 2008 elections.

In a related interview on “Anopa Bosuo”,a Morning Show programme on Happy Fm,Maame Dokuno said she had lost hope because of the way the matter was been handled.
