Ever since it was announced on Wednesday that, Akuapem Poloo has been convicted on her own plea, there have been lots of arguments and pleas from some celebrities and ordinary Ghanaians on why she should be pardoned and made to walk away.
In case you’ve not read the latest update, Akuapem Poloo has since been sentenced to 90 days in prison by a judge today, April 15th, 2021 after it turned out she was not pregnant when a pregnancy test was done.
Popular news anchor, Serwaa Amihere was shocked people were pleading with the judge to pardon her when Akuapem Poloo herself pleaded guilty in court.
In a tweet asking why people were asking her to be freed, musician and business man Reggie Rockson asked her if she has a child suggesting that, she wouldn’t understand why because she hasn’t given birth yet so wouldn’t know the pain of a mother going to jail and leaving her son behind.
Serwaaa’s tweet read:
A person is convicted on her OWN PLEA. this means that the person accepts that he or she is wrong. The natural consequence of pleading guilty on your own volition means that you are ready to be punished.
How are we asking for this person to be freed….
Then Reggie’s reply to her reads:
WE ASK COS WE ARE HUMAN AND ALL BLEED RED AND FEEL FOR THIS PERSONS PLIGHT IS WHY IT IS OK TO ASK AND MORE SO ABOUT HER SON!! DO YOU HAVE A CHILD?
