Joselyn Dumas’ Foundation Installs CCTV Cameras For Korlebu Children’s/Pediatric Block

Joselyn Dumas and her foundation “THE JOSELYN CANFOR-DUMAS FOUNDATION” (JCD Foundation) on Friday 18th May 2018 Officially handed-over installed and fully functional CCTV Cameras to the Children’s/Pediatric Block of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. On New Year’s Day, Monday 1st January 2018, Joselyn along with the JCD Foundation and family organized a fun-filled party in collaboration with Think Mahogany Events by Debra Jane for the Children’s/Pediatric Block. The purpose of the party was to bring the cheers of the festive celebrations to the hospitalized children and their families whom spent the day with them as well as commence the New Year with them with optimism.

Before her departure, Actress, Tv and Radio Host Joselyn Dumas in a conversation asked the nurses on duty what specific needs they had which she could help with in aid of improving their working environment and care service provision for the children and their families in the block. The Head of Nurses, Madam Agnes expressed a great concern for the general protection of the unit, suggesting the need of a better security system for the protection of all persons on the wards as there have been numerous reports on theft crime and she felt this could be reduced significantly if not completely if CCTV Cameras were installed.

The JCD Foundation has successfully installed Security CCTV Cameras and Servers at specific vantage points in and out of the block, protecting their safety. Professor Lorna Reney, officially received the Joselyn Canfor-Dumas Foundation’s donation on behalf of hospital management on Friday 18th May 2018 and expressed how invaluable their contribution is to the hospital as it will deter baby/child theft and nurse and baby/child-mother’s malpractices in the block as well as tighten their security, contributing to an improved service provision.

Joselyn, who has undertaken the cost of many surgeries for children expressed her love for children and vowed to do everything possible to ease the discomfort of children on the block as well as those underprivileged around the country. Joselyn has encouraged everyone to get involved no matter how small, just as the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo said “we shouldn’t be spectators but citizens”. Therefore, she believes it takes a collective effort from all of us to support the less privileged in our society especially children. The Actress therefore appealed to the public and all Ghanaians to help in every little way possible.

The Joselyn Canfor-Dumas Foundation, among many other charities continues to finance the education of smart but underprivileged children around the country. They also spearheaded the widely known #Xcholera, an effective campaign organized to eradicate Cholera in Ghana a few years ago.

Video- Woman Exchanges Baby For Fufu At Nkrumah Circle

The story of mothers losing their newborns often is reported in hospitals where the birth took place. Rarely do you hear cases like that of Madam Yaa who ‘accidentally’ gave her 2-month-old baby to a total stranger, in a bid to get some food to eat.

Madam Yaa was in the company of her friend also called Yaa, when they both came to Circle Sunday afternoon to take some money from her brother.

Narrating her ordeal on Kofi TV, the distraught mother amid bitter tears said, “I can’t take this, my child is missing. I was on my way to visit my in-law at Ashaiman but I didn’t have money on me so I called my brother who is at Circle to tell him I’ll come over for money for my upkeep and he said I should.

I was with a friend who had also delivered twins. When we got here we alighted at a filling station at Circle around Vodafone and then I called my brother and asked where he was and he said he was on his way. We kept calling him and he kept saying he was on his way.”

“A lady was passing by and was laughing and I told my friend the lady was laughing at us because of her twins. The lady passed by and came back to us, she did not say anything to anybody and carried one of the twins. My friend then said she was hungry and the lady said she had a chop bar in mind and so she took us there to go and have something to eat and directed my brother who was still on his way to the place,” she lamented.

Yaa who could not stop her tears recounted, “She asked us what food we were going to eat and we mentioned fufu, then she said we should go inside and order for the food because the fan there was not good for the baby so that when I am done eating, she will give me back the baby. I did not think ill of her at that time to suspect foul play because she had already taken my friend’s baby and had given the baby back to my friend and so I thought she will give me mine too”.

When we were about to eat she told us she was going to buy credit, and I asked her where she was taking my child. Then she said, I am not a bad person, I am only buying credit by the roadside, I will be back. So I went outside and watched her buy the credit and saw her coming back to where we were, so I went back inside. After an hour, the lady was not coming back. So I told my friend I was going for my child. I went outside and the lady was nowhere to be found. I did not see where she passed.”

The incident which has since been reported to the Police is under investigation.

The heartbroken mother appealed to all and sundry to help her find her daughter as her husband has threatened to kill her if she does not return with their baby.

“Please help me find my daughter, please help me. My baby is a plumpy 2-month-old baby girl. I don’t know the lady, I thought she was just being a kind person since she looked like she just closed from church. My husband has threatened to kill me if I don’t return with his baby,” she cried out.

The distraught mother noted that her mother tried to stop her from embarking on the journey but she didn’t listen.

“I have been crying all through the night, Please help me find my baby, please help,” she pleaded.

Bizarre: Girl ‘set ablaze’ during prayers for WASSCE, dies from injuries

A prayer session for spiritual support during the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), took a wrong turn when a girl was strangely set ablaze, in what appears to be a freak accident, at Breman Assikuma in the Central Region.

The girl, a final year SHS student of the Gomoa Ahyiem Senior High School, has since died from her burns, and the prophetess who led the prayer session, Efua Eguawaa of the African Faith Church, is on the run.

Police in the area have declared the prophetess wanted, and are on the hunt for her.

The deceased was initially rushed to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, but passed away on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.

According to the Breman Assikuma police, the incident happened on April 1, but only came to their attention on April 5.

The deceased was reportedly taken to the church of the prophetess by her mother to be prayed for ahead of the WASSCE exams.

The spiritual help being sought went awry when te ‘anointing oil’ smeared on the girl’s body caught fire after coming into contact with the flame from a candle the prophetess had made her hold.

Narrating the incident to Citi News, the Breman Asikuma District Commander of the Ghana Police Service, Supt. Emmanuel Donkoh Baah, said, “she attended the prayer session with the parents and during the prayers, the prophetess administered some direction; smeared oil on the body, lit a candle and the candle burned the schoolgirl.”

The extent of the deceased’s burn injuries are as yet unknown.

The police say the prophetess is believed to be in her forties and is dark in complexion.

Supt. Baah further explained that the police need the assistance of the public to arrest the prophetess to assist them in the investigations.

Baby Dies As Doctor Cuts Oxygen Supply Over Nonpayment Of GHC533 Bill

A nine-week-old baby boy has died at the St Gregory Hospital at Kasoa in the Central Region because his parents could not afford the cost of aiding his breathing with an oxygen machine.

Little Prosper’s parents tell Joy News a medical doctor on duty pulled the plug from the oxygen machine because they could not pay GHS533 to keep their son alive.

Hospital authorities are tight-lipped on the issue explaining they are investigating the circumstances that led to the death of the baby.

Prosper was born on January 19, 2018, fell sick and was taken to the hospital on March 5 and died three weeks later.

The baby’s mother, Sefakor, told Joy News Joojo Cobbinah, that a few weeks after the baby was born she realized he not breathing well.

According to Sefakor, after preliminary tests, the St Gregory Hospital admitted them with the intention of transferring the case to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital subsequently.

The baby was given blood and kept on the oxygen machine because he could not breathe well.

However, when it became clear the family could not pay for the cost of treatment before the intended transfer to Korle Bu, the doctor decided to take a drastic decision.

“That Saturday, the Doctor came, he ask me that I hear from my husband [about the bills] I say I didn’t hear. Then he removed the oxygen…it is too late,” Sefakor managed in the little English she could speak.

The baby’s father, Kennedy Kwao, said he chose the name ‘Prosper’ because he was hopeful that the boy will grow up to become a prosperous man. That hope, however, has been curtailed.

SAD: Man, 22, gets death sentence for killing 2 Americans in Akwamufie.

Yaw-Anokye-Frimpong-620x330

A High Court in Accra has sentenced a 22-year-old man, Yaw Anokye, to death by hanging for the gruesome murder of two African-American women at Akwamufie in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region, in May 2015.

Yaw Anokye was found guilty by a seven-member jury after he had confessed to killing the two women in their 70s.

Delivering her judgment, the Judge, Justice Merley Afua Wood, asked God to have mercy on the soul of the accused as he was about to face death.

The two deceased persons, Mane Lena, 75, and 69-year-old Diop Nzanga, were kidnapped, murdered and buried in a shallow grave in 2015.

Police in Akosombo found the bodies of the two after they were reported to have gone missing.

Their bodies were exhumed after Acting President of the Akwamu Traditional Council dispatched over 70 people to complement a police search for the two when it became apparent they had gone missing.

About the two women

The two, who dealt in batik and tie-dye, had lived in a small settlement near Akwamufie for more than 18 years.

At the time, no reasons were assigned for the murder of the two expatriates, but some linked it to some community disagreement rooted in chieftaincy matters.

The Omanhene of the Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, expressed shock at the murder of the two American women.

He said Akwamus had over the years lived with many strangers and settlers, including foreigners, on their land, without any problem.

Confession

According to the Daily Graphic, during the committal proceedings at the Accra Central District Court, Frimpong confessed to single-handedly clubbing the two women to death.

The five other accused persons were later discharged.

Frimpong repeated his confession at the Accra High Court during the trial, but stated that it was never his intention to kill them but that his intention was to steal from them.

According to him, he killed for fear of being exposed when they found him stealing in Madam Diop’s room.

Per his testimony, Frimpong went to the apartment to steal, but in the course of the act, Madam Diop returned home and caught him in the act.

Consequently, he struggled with her, overpowered her and tied her hands and also covered her mouth with a piece of cloth, after which he went home.

But out of fear of being exposed by his victim, he returned to the house with a club with the intention of killing her and met Madam Jaana in the apartment.

Frimpong told the court that he hit the two women repeatedly with the club and after killing them, and conveyed their bodies in a wheelbarrow to a nearby farm, dug a shallow grave and buried their bodies.

After the act, he stole GH¢156 from Madam Diop’s room, went to town and drunk alcohol in order to forget about what had happened.

Haunted

After the jury’s verdict last Wednesday, Frimpong was given an opportunity to make a statement before the court delivered its sentence.

He informed the court that he had committed other crimes which the police were currently investigating and said those crimes were haunting him.

“These crimes are haunting me because I know I committed them,’’ he said.

He prayed the court to have mercy on him because he had not intentionally killed the two women.

On death penalty in Ghana

The last time the Ghana recorded an execution of a convict, was in 1993, when then-president John Rawlings ordered the execution of 12 convicts via a firing squad.

According to Amnesty International Ghana, as at September 2016, there were 137 prisoners on death row, who have not been executed. As a result, many have pushed for Ghana to do away with the death penalty from Ghana’s legal system since it is not enforced.

Those opposed against the death penalty have argued that it is not the right punishment for a convicted murderer but retributive.

Death penalty has been in the country’s statute books since the application of the English common law in 1874, but in practice, no execution has been recorded since July 1993.

According to the proponents, much as the sentence may be seen in a wider sense as fairness, it doesn’t deter people from committing such crimes.
