Mawusi was raped by a police man at age 16. Her parents agreed to settle the matter out of court by accepting an amount between ghc800 and ghc1000 from the rapist. She never received medical attention even though she was visibly wounded from the act. We apologize for the crowd’s reaction. We called them to order during the taping of the episode. 🙏🏽
