Stop Politicizing Josephine Panyin Mensah's Fake Pregnancy Saga - Senior Psychologist Warns

Senior Psychologist, Prof. Joseph Osafo, has cautioned politicians against politicizing the developing fake pregnancy and kidnapping story at Takoradi, Western Region, involving a 29-year old woman named Josephine Panyin Mensah.

Mrs. Panyin Mensah is a suspect at the centre of the fake story.

She reportedly got missing and, recounting her ordeal after being found, disclosed she was kidnapped.

Another shocking revelation aside her kidnapping is that she was nine months pregnant when her alleged kidnappers picked her away.

But after thorough investigations by the Police, it's turned out that she faked her story and is currently facing prosecution.

She was arraigned before a Takoradi Circuit Court on Monday, September 27 and, with five lawyers defending her, has been granted a GHC 50, 000 bail with two sureties.

Her case has been adjourned to October 14, 2021.

Mrs. Panyin Mensah's issue has however turned political as some people are shifting blames on the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo with they reportedly claiming the President has a hand in this case.

Prof. Joseph Osafo, making submissions on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme, bemoaned the political twist on the issue.

Speaking to host Kwami Sefa Kayi, he briefly warned those politicizing the matter saying, "we cannot polarize everything in this country on political or partisan lines. We have to stop it!''
