- Musician and politician, A-plus, has condemned the court for convicting Akuapem Poloo, also known as Rosemond Brown
- He is asking the court to free Brown because there are more people in Akufo-Addo’s government who must be convicted
- A-plus mentioned some of the instances in which Akufo-Addo’s government has been plagued by corruption
Ghanaian musician and politician, A-Plus, has waded into the Akuapem Poloo court case saga in which she has been convicted.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, A-Plus wondered what crime Rosemond Brown committed to warrant being convicted by the court.
To him, there are more people in government who must be prosecuted and convicted over serious crimes than what Akuapem Poloo is being held for.
He mentioned, for instance, that someone who was awarded a contract by the government to provide food for people spent a whopping 19 billion cedis, yet people were fed just plain rice and pepper.
To him, this is a crime and must be probed for the guilty persons to be jailed.
A-Plus concluded the court is bent on convicting and jailing vulnerable people while leaving the real criminals to walk about freely.
A-Plus' rant is coming on the heels that Rosemond Brown has been convicted by the court on her own pleas.
She pleaded guilty after sharing nude photos with her son, Sonof, on social media to celebrate his birthday.
She squats before her son all naked while holding his hands in a photoshoot. Rosemond Brown shared the photo to her Instagram and explained the idea behind the nude photoshoot.
Meanwhile, a private legal practitioner, Bernard Owiredu Donkor, has said Akuapen Poloo could face up to a three-year jail term.
He said Brown’s offense was a misdemeanour, and thus, she could be handed a maximum of three years in jail.
According to him, the court directing Rosemond Brown to undergo a pregnancy test means that she is in for a custodian sentence, explaining that the law does not allow for a pregnant woman to be kept in jail.
Lawyer Donkor, added, however, that Brown’s lawyer could put up a strong defense to have the sentence reduced, suggesting that he could argue on the line that she is a single mother and there is no one to take care of her child.
This explanation by the lawyer is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.com.
