Man impregnates mad woman

A KNOWN MAD woman in Kumasi has been impregnated by an unknown man, and the incident is raising eyebrows in the city.

Yaa Frafra said she was raped by one Kwadwo in the bush at night when nobody was around, resulting in her pregnancy.

She said Kwadwo used to give her money for her upkeep but he (Kwadwo) had suddenly disappeared since she became pregnant four months ago.

This came to light when Veronica Kukuwaa Gyandoh of Kessben FM interviewed Yaa Frafra on her network.

Yaa Frafra is a known mentally-retarded person who is usually seen sweeping a spot opposite the Catering Rest House area to the electricity workshop in Kumasi.

There have been reports of some people, especially men, bonking mad women in the city at night for voodoo purposes.

Reports making rounds indicate that men that bonk mad women at night usually do so to enhance their monetary status.

Though Yaa Frafra’s case has not been identified as one such incidents, people in the city have started linking his pregnancy to ‘Juju.’

Yaa Frafra during her interaction with Kukuwaa claimed that she was not a mad person but her utterances gave an indication she was not mentally sound.

For instance, she said she was 10-years of age, adding that it was normal for a man to rape a lady these days.

Yaa Frafra said she hailed from Bolgatanga and that she was a mother of three, who were now in foster homes.

Asked why she usually stayed in the bush by the roadside, she said, “I stay here because I don’t have anywhere to stay in the city.”

Yaa Frafra said though she is usually seen sitting by the roadside, in the night she sleeps at a different location in the city called Pampaso.

She claimed that she baths every day, adding that she periodically visited the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) for her ante-natals.

Yaa Frafra said she would be glad if Kwadwo who raped her could be arrested for impregnating her and vanishing into thin air.

The pregnancy seemed to be having a toll on the mad woman on the day that Kukuwaa engaged her in a chat as she could not sweep the area as she normally does.

Yaa Frafra said she could not sweep the area to beautify the place on the day because she was feeling fatigue perhaps due to her pregnancy.

She said she would wish to go back to Bolgatanga where she hailed from but doesn’t have the means to do so.

Yaa Frafra told Kukuwaa that she would be extremely happy if somebody could give her GH ¢200 for her upkeep.
