Woman gives birth successfully after being freed by Speaker of Parliament

A pregnant woman who was jailed two years for injuring a rival but later rescued through the benevolence of Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament has given birth to a bouncy baby boy.

The woman, Akosua Sarfowaa, was a mother of one at the time prior to her incarceration. She was also 6-month pregnant when she was charged with assault for hitting her husband’s girlfriend.

She was later jailed for two years in following her inability to raise a fine of GHC 3400 slapped on her by the circuit court in Suhum which found her guilty of the offence.

Mynewsgh.com reports that through the Crime Check Foundation, news on Sarfowaa reached the attention of the Speaker of Parliament, Aaron Mike Ocquaye.

He then decided to pay the fine and get the vulnerable young expectant mother released.
