President of the Ghana Bar Association, Anthony Forson Jnr has ardently denied rape allegations levelled against him by one Kuukuwa Andam on social media.

Miss Andam, A Ghanaian lawyer based in the United States took to her Facebook page to seek for justice for what she describes as an act by the GBA President that completely destroyed her life.

She penned the details of how she had to ‘endure’ rape from Mr. Forson whom she had met at a hotel in Washington in 2012. Per her narration, she had among other things gone to have ‘decent sex’ with the latter so she could get some money to cater for her rent expenses during her stay in school.

Though she insisted she purchased a condom for the act since she knew of Mr. Forson’s ‘numerous encounters with other ladies, Miss Andam says her pleas were ignored, instead, she was pinned down on the bed and violently defiled.

In a statement from Mr. Forson’s lawyers Beyuo & Co however, the allegations were tagged as ‘palpable falsehood’. Mr. Forson maintains that the truth will eventually emerge and his name will be cleared.

“Our client Anthony Forson Jnr’s attention has been drawn to a post on one Miss Kuukuwa Andam’s Facebook page that he committed an offence of rape against her sometime in 2012.

Mr. Forson sincerely and emphatically denies that he has committed any such offence against the said Miss Kuukuwa Andam.

He maintains that the allegations are palpably false and in due course he will be vindicated.

Mr. Forson will like to thank all those who have by various means shown concern and support for him and his family during this trying period,” lawyers for Anthony Forson Jnr noted in a statement dated January 14, 2019.

Below is her full statement on Facebook;

How I was raped by Anthony Forson Jnr. (Ghana Bar Association President) & have filed a criminal complaint against him in Washington D.C.

“Yesterday, I filed a criminal complaint with the Washington DC Police Department against the current President of the Ghana Bar Association for a rape that occurred in the US in December 2012 and the perpetrator was Anthony Forson Jnr who is currently the President of the Ghana Bar Association. The investigation is pending & if the case is cleared, charges will be filed against him.

I want to be clear just as I stated in my post on Selasi that I DO NOT want or need a pesewa from Tony. I have my own money. Not to boast but I teach several courses at a top-notch university in Canada & just finished managing a major research project. I am a published author & I am regularly invited to participate in paid speaking opportunities due to my activist work. So this is not about money. This is about justice & trying to ensure that the next generation of Gh. female lawyers will never suffer the way that I have suffered.

I met Tony at the last Ghana Bar Association event I attended before travelling to study for my masters at Cornell University. This was almost a year after being raped by Selasi & my heart had hardened. After my bitter experience, I had decided that most married male lawyers in Ghana were going to take advantage of you anyway so it was better to just date them for money.

At that time, I needed money for Cornell as my funding only covered my tuition. So when Tony told me he wanted to date me, I agreed. He would send me many messages telling me he loved me. I used to call him ‘T-baby.’ He knows all these things & can admit them if only he will be honest.

We never had actual sex in Ghana although we were physically intimate (would kiss & touch & do other stuff) and then I left for Cornell. I did any job I could find in Cornell just to survive. I asked a relative for rent & he told me if he gave me the money I wouldn’t pay back. That was the day I realized I was on my own. I worked as a cook in a cafeteria & would stand for hours. I worked as a cleaner. I would be so tired I would sleep during lectures. Eventually, I decided to contact Tony for money.

He told me to meet him at a hotel in Washington DC for the rent money. It was close to school exams but I went anyway. Remember that at this time we hadn’t actually had sex but I told myself that I would just close my eyes & do it with a condom (because I knew he was sleeping with many women) & then at least I wouldn’t have to drop out of school. He told me he would arrange transportation for me.

I lost my laptop in the taxi & arrived at the hotel crying my eyes out. All my lecture notes were on that laptop and losing it meant I would fail the exams. Tony didn’t care. By this time, I knew the drill with dating married men. I knew that they claimed to love you but of course, they didn’t. You were just a piece of meat so I wasn’t shocked at his reaction.

As soon as I settled in, he asked for sex. I had already psyched myself up and so I asked him whether he had a condom. When he said no, I pleaded with him to allow me to at least go get a condom but he pinned me down & raped me.”

Background

Ghanaian lawyer based in North America, Kuukuwa Andam made some wild allegations against President of the Ghana Bar Association, Anthony Forson Jnr.

The female lawyer in a post on her wall accused Anthony Forson Jnr of rape, narrating the alleged traumatizing experience she went through after her “rapist” failed to apologise to her for his actions.

She claims Anthony Forson Jr. raped her in a hotel in Washington D.C in 2012 when she went there to have “decent sex” with him in exchange for money she needed for her rent.

“He told me to meet him at a hotel in Washington DC for the rent money… Remember that at this time we hadn’t actually had s*x but I told myself that I would just close my eyes & do it with a condom (because I knew he was sleeping with many women) & then at least I wouldn’t have to drop out of school. He told me he would arrange transportation for me,” Kuukuwa disclosed in a Facebook post.

She added, “As soon as I settled in, he asked for s*x. I had already psyched myself up and so I asked him whether he had a condom. When he said no, I pleaded with him to allow me to at least go get a condom but he pinned me down & raped me.”

According to Kuukuwa, Tony failed to give her the full rent money as promised and even refused to communicate with her.

“After raping me, he refused to talk to me. It was as if he had been filled with some new hatred for me. He told me with disdain that I could take the $400 on the table if I wanted. I almost went mad. I couldn’t believe that he had forced himself on me & was not even talking to me. And the money he had given me was even less than the price of the laptop I had lost just to see him. So I had been raped & ended up in debt too,” she wrote.

Kuukuwa narrates how she suffered after the incident and had to be hospitalised in a psychiatric facility.

She says several letters and messages to the GBA President demanding an apology from him went unanswered, hence her decision to expose and bring him to justice.

To this effect, Kuukuwa disclosed that she has filed a criminal complaint with the Washington DC Police Department against Mr. Forson pending investigation and if the case is cleared, charges will be filed against him.

Similar allegations were made by the same against another prominent Ghanaian lawyer.

However, in a statement released by lawyers for Anthony Forson, Beyuo & Co, he denied the allegation flatly, saying it was a palpable falsehood orchestrated to soil his hard-earned reputation.
