KKD rape saga 3 reasons why State dropped case against KKD

The state has dropped its case against entertainment personality Kwesi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) who was standing trial for rape.

  • Published:

Popular Ghanaian broadcaster, Kwasi Kyei Darkwa, also known as KKD has been acquitted and discharged.

The state dropped rape charges levelled against him.

Stating the reasons for their decision the state prosecutors said “the vicitm in this case Ewureffe is still very unwilling to testify in court.

Here are three (3) reasons why the State dropped the rape case against KKD.


The Attorney General has entered a nolle prosequi for the following reasons.

1 The Victim in this case, Ewureffe is still very unwilling to testify in court. The victim stated that she is highly traumatized by the events on the day of the incident and its aftermath and so was not in the right frame of mind to appear before the court

2. Thus the Attorney General believed that it was not in the best interest of the victim and the prosecution to present her before the court at this point in time.

The AG was mindful of the provisions under the Prosecutors code one of which was that, the best interest of the victim is to be considered in cases of this nature in deciding whether to prosecute a case or not.

3. The other witness in this case who are mostly family members of Ewureffe are also unwilling to testify.

The AG believed in the case and so held on to it with the hope that the witnesses will willingly appear to testify when they are needed by the court.

This was not to say that the AG is unaware of the various legal processes at her disposal to compel the witnesses to appear before the court. It is to be noted that the AG still believes in the case and reserves the right to commence the prosecution once the victim and witnesses are ready.
