Rapper Kwaw Kese says there is no difference between the Children’s ward at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and a prison.
He told Starr FM in an interview, the place is “extremely unhealthy” and “an eyesore.”
“I have been to prison before and if I tell you there’s no difference between the children’s ward and prison I bet you, I’m being very truthful. It is extremely unhealthy, the situation there is pathetic,” explained the rapper.
“The situation at the Korle Bu Children’s Ward was an eyesore. I wish after saying this you’ll come and have a look at it yourself or you’ll send your colleague journalists to report on the issue. You have to see the children’s emergency unit, trust me. What the newborn babies and their mothers go through is pathetic. I mean this ward that houses new born babies, I’m talking about a day old baby. The place is extremely vulnerable, anything at all can happen to those babies.”
Kese’s son died some three days after he was born at an unnamed private health facility in Accra.
Doctors at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, where the baby was transferred to after developing heart complications on Friday, June 29, 2018, told the parents there wasn’t anything they could do to save the baby’s life.
He couldn’t travel outside the country for a cure also because of his size. The baby died on Monday, July 2, 2018 after unsuccessful attempts to save his life.
The dead son would have been the rapper’s second child with wife, Mrs. Doris Kyei Botchwey.
The couple’s first child is Docilla Nana Hemaa Botchwey, who Kese once described as “the best gift I got from 2016” and “lovely present.”
Mrs. Botchwey is popularly known as Pokua/Poks off her role in popular Ghanaian Television series, Efiewura. She also owns Poks Inn.
