A young woman has narrated the ordeal served her after her landlord and his son both expressed interest in an affair with her when she was just a lowly national service worker hoping to make ends meet.
Silentbeads.com reports that Maabena, the young woman in question, had moved to Accra because of her national service posting. A man, identified only as Mr. Aboagye, became her landlord.
The 65-year-old Mr Aboagye went out of his way to help her bring her things to the room he had offered her and ensured she was well-settled. He then started making advances towards her.
When her landlord finally asked Maabena to be his girlfriend, the young woman responded that she already had a boyfriend with whom she planned to get married after her national service.
However, four months into her tenancy, the young woman noticed the presence of another gentleman, Akwasi, in the house. He turned out to be the landlord's son and she was glad he became her friend because that kept the landlord away.
The idea of young women dating older men for the benefit of accommodation and money is even supported by some Ghanaian celebrities. Tracey Boakye is one of those.
As the story would go, Akwasi became Maabena's boyfriend. But the landlord, not happy with the situation, told his tenant that Akwasi already had a girlfriend in the UK.
When Maabena confronted Akwasi with the information, he denied it and demanded to know his accuser. She could not reveal her source but that did not stop the landlord from feeding his son another bunch of stories.
Mr Aboagye told his son that Maabena does not seem like a faithful partner. The landlord then tripled his tenant's rent and demanded two years in advance payment.
Sadly, the young woman could not afford this. This was added to the fact that the landlord told his son that he had already been with his son's girlfriend.
Eventually, the truth came out about the plans of the landlord. But Maabena, who had been hurt by the series of events could not bring herself to even be with Akwasi again.
