Black Queens goalkeeper Fafali Dumehasi has received a promotion in the Ghana Police Service as she has just become a Corporal.
Graphic.com.gh reports that Fafali was one of 6,000 Junior Police Officers who were promoted by the Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh.
Her promotion took effect from January 1, 2020. The 26-year-old represented Ghana at the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations.
It has not been known by many that the Black Queens goalkeeper has doubled as a policewoman. The news should not actually be too surprising as it is hard for women to work only as professional footballers.
It appears that the systems are not robust enough to support women footballers in a way so they fully focus on their career in football.
Men have it easier as they are able to play for clubs for great salaries during periods when there are no national tournaments.
For women, when there are no national competitions, most of them have to work other jobs to support themselves and their families.
Ghanaian footballers have been in the news for exciting issues aside football.
Just recently, YEN.com.gh reported that Black Stars striker Emmanuel Boateng and long-time girlfriend Barbara tied the knot in a grand wedding on Saturday, December 28, 2019.
The beautiful event happened at the Golden Bean Hotel with the 23-year-old Emmanuel exchanging vows with his beautiful bride.
It was an exclusive event with only a sizeable group of friends, families, guests and well-wishers in attendance.
