A former National Vice Chairperson of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anita Desoso, says the 90-day jail term handed to actress, Rosemond Alade Brown over the publication of nude pictures is fair.
Known on social media as Akuapem Poloo was found guilty of posting a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son on June 30, 2020.
She was charged for publication of obscene material and domestic violence by an Accra circuit court.
The actress pleaded guilty to all three charges and was convicted on her own plea by the court.
The presiding judge, Mrs. Christina Cann, bemoaned the spate of nudity on Ghanaian social media, maintaining that the punishment meted out to Akuapem Polo must serve as a deterrent to others.
Wadding into the judgment, Madam Anita Desoso expressed delight at the development but wondered about the actress’ mental health and called for physiological assistance.
“They have sentenced her to 90 days imprisonment. Apart from that, she needs a physiologist. Physiologically it can have an effect on her. The same applies to her child,” she told Original 91.9FM’s Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.
“The verdict has been read. The law serves as a deterrent to others. If it is reduced it needs to be replicated. 90 days will elapse soon,” Anita Desoso added on the Adwenekasa programme.”
The erstwhile National Women’s Organiser of the opposition NDC, therefore, alluded that the 7-year-old son of Akuapem Poloo should be separated from her parent for his own good.
“The child if possible should be given to some responsible people. I want the child to be relocated to a different town and change his school,” she noted.
