Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The husband of the missing but found Takoradi pregnant woman, Michael Simons, insists his wife, Josephine Panyin Simons, was pregnant.
According to him, there was no need for her to fake the pregnancy since they already have a child together.
He added that this was not desperation to have a child, so the minister should have done due diligence before running to the media to say his wife was not pregnant.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh as shared by Citinews, he said the doctors and other people in authority were supposed to do due diligence by investigating thoroughly.
