A visually impaired man, Seth Kofi Anto, who established that he suspects his ex-wife is behind his predicament, has received GHc2000 to ameliorate his plight.
The local Ghanaian charity organisation, SVTV Africa Foundation, donated the whopping amount of cash to Seth Kofi Anto, which was sent by a Germany-based donor.
It would be recalled that, in a previous interview with SVTV Africa, Kofi Anto claimed he became blind after taking a drink with a substance he believed was poison.
How Anto lost his sight
Kofi Anto, aged 59, told DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that he suspects his former wife of 35 years. He explained that after ten years of living and working abroad, he returned to meet another man in their house.
''While I was away, my wife and I decided to turn our house into a school. So, I sent her money for the renovations. But I returned to Ghana to meet a man living in my home with my wife, but she said they only work together,'' he told SVTV Africa.
''Eventually, I asked him to leave my house because I realised they were a couple. That is when it all began,'' he recalled.
According to Kofi Anto, he travelled to Cote D’Ivoire for a get-together with his workers at his shoe company and that was where he lost his sight.
Donation from local charity
In a recent interview, DJ Nyaame of SVTV Africa handed GHc2000 in cash to Seth Kofi Anto, which was sent by the outlet's donor who lives outside Ghana.
