The sexual adventures of a 40-year-old man, Yaw Kwakye from Anaimo Ate in the Amenfi East District of the Western Region has landed him in trouble.
Kwakye who was found guilty of committing incest after it was discovered that he had been sexually exloiting his 17-year-old niece for close to a year has been ordered to pay a fine of GH¢2,000 by the Chief of Anaimo Ate.
Apart from the GH¢2, 000, he is also to provide a full grown sheep, one crate of soft drinks, one bottle of club beer and a bottle of exotic Schnapps.
As demanded by Anaimo Ate tradition Kwakye would sprinkle the blood of the sheep on the principal streets of Anaimo Ate as purification rites to avert any punishment that might befall the town due to his actions
In an interview with Atinkaonline, the linquist of the village, Okyeame Anim said Kwakye’s offence was grave and that if punitive measures were not taken, the wrath of the gods would be unleashed on the them.
Okyeame Anim also disclosed that the initial fine included two sheep and three crates of beer, but the culprit showed remorse and so the jury decided to be lenient with him.
