38 year old Nana Akua, a widow and a mother of six children laments her ordeal to crimecheckghana. She and her children currently have nowhere to sleep as they are being ejected from their room due to her inability to pay her rent.
Nana Akua told crimecheckghana that she was living with her husband at Nungua with their four children but due to his husband’s asthmatic condition she could not hold on to life and passed on leaving her and their children without support from any family member or friend.
She laments “in my distress I met a man who offered to give us accommodation. He rented a place for us at Ablekuma waakye junction for six months”.
She reveals that, during the period, she had two children with him.
When she got pregnant with the last born, the man asked him to abort the pregnancy but she refused. So he abandoned her and the six children.
The 38 year old said “I was working to assist myself and my children but due to the operation with the sixth child am unable to work”.
Amid tears, the mother of six said because of the difficulties she and her children had to endure, all her five children have dropped out of school. The worse of it all is that, Nana Akua and her six children have been ejected from their house because their rent is due.
The aggrieved mother is therefore appealing to the public for help. “I request for assistance to rent a place for us to stay and some support to send my children to school”. She said.
