Rapper, Kwaw Kese, born Emmanuel Botchway donated some items worth GH¢50,000 to the Ho Prisons on Monday October 12, 2015.
Speaking at the event, Kwaw revealed, “I got a call that there was an outbreak of skin diseases at the Ho Prison and almost all the prisoners were infected, so I decided to go and see what the problem really is. The Prison officers told me some of the emergency items they needed and I decided to support them”.
“I believe the time I spent in prison was a blessing and I will do anything I can to change the poor conditions inside prisons in Ghana. I am still waiting and hoping that senior officials of the Ghana Prison Service would approve my proposed 20 years development plan and then Ghanaians would understand what I really want to do”.
“I want to thank Joy Industries for supporting me to do this and am calling on my fellow stars, cooperate companies, NGOs, Churches and everybody to support prisons and prisoners in Ghana because they really need it”.
During the launch of the Kwaw Kese Foundation, he disclosed that "My personal experiences from prison has really touched and moved me to contribute my little quota to help our brothers and sisters who have been incarcerated".
Kwaw Kese, known on stage as "Abodam" was arrested for publicly smoking cannabis and he spent five weeks in Kumasi Central Prison.
