Media Personality, Kofi Okyere Darko says Ex-President called him to inquiry about Kwasi Kyei Darkwa’s rape saga because he was concerned.
Speaking on the Tonight with Nii Kpakpo Thompson, KOD revealed that “When it happened President Rawlings told me that he thinks that being everything that I am I didn’t have to be quiet about it and I have to go out and talk about the facts of the matter because he was very concerned, he was very concerned, he had an interest in that case.
And am like a son… so to make sure am doing the right thing, he called me and wanted to know the truth and I told him”.
KOD added that, “Right then, I called Nana Bediatuo who is my personal lawyer and Nana became his (KKD) lawyer. KKD didn’t know Nana from anywhere. That very night I called the President’s brother, Ibrahim who showed up the following morning at the Police station.
Right from that day my wife was cooking for him for the next two to three days. Maybe the only thing I didn’t do was to write things on Facebook. The law had taken up the case, what was I going to write” KOD quipped.
“When my father died, KKD came home. And it was at a time I could feel things were not okay between KKD and myself. I spoke to him in Twi [If you are here let me use the opportunity to apologise to you].
He felt that I should have been in court or sitting on a show like this one in his defence but my lawyers had talked to me.
My lawyers said that where the act took place I was not there. And he had conceded that he had consensual sex with the young lady. He had spoken for himself, what else was I going to say?”
“I have now buried this issue like my father, it’s been the lowest low in my life,” KOD disclosed.
KKD was officially charge with raping a 19-year-old girl in the bathroom of a suite at the African Regent Hotel in December 2014.
The State was forced to drop its charges against the entertainment personality in April, 2015 because the lady at the centre of the rape charge against KKD said she was no longer interested in the case.
