Update on KKD Rape case: Alleged Victim Withdraws Charge, KKD Issues an Apology Letter

Ghana's KKD BET 20101. Kwasi Kyei Dakwah aka KKD may be a free man soon. He was accused of raping a young woman this past December, arrested and held without bail. The rape victim and her family met with his family over the holidays to discuss the rape allegation.

2. Subsequently after the meeting, the victim writes the court a two page letter asking to withdraw the case. She explains the pressure and abuse she was experiencing from society at large and that she wanted peace of mind. She believed “God” will be the one to remit justice.

3. KKD writes his own letter and apologizes.

4. Under Ghana’s criminal laws, even though the victim decides to withdraw the case, Ghana’s Attorney General/Prosecutor can still decide to press forward with charges. Obviously, the challenge is for the prosecutor to review and be sure they have enough evidence to do so.

    Is KKD admitting that he committed the crime of which he is accused? Or is he apologizing to his supporters for putting himself in a position to be falsely accused?

    Either way, this public announcement is not a good look.
