A Ghanaian football player in Gävle, Sweden, Kwame Bonsu, has been sent to prison for assaulting and raping his wife. A Swedish court yesterday sentenced Kwame, who plays in Sweden’s second division, to two years in prison for beating and raping his estranged wife.
22-year-old Kwame Bonsu who played for the Gefle IF club, after serving his sentence will also be deported from the Scandinavian country where he has lived since 2013.
The court heard that the rape and beatings took place in the couple’s apartment during an evening in November 2015 when he had refused to let her out.
Bonsu repeatedly denied the charges, but testimony from his wife’s relatives led the court to believe the victim’s version of events.
