She made this revelation after Kuukuwa Andam made a startling revelation about the current Ghana Bar Association President, Anthony Forson Jnr. who alleged to have raped her in 2012.
“Yep. Escaped four rape attempts before I turned 18 in Ghana. Are Ghanaian men are rapists or do they not understand sex, love and relationships?” Leila asked.
She indicated that “In a society where a woman is deemed property, it’s not surprising they believe they can take anyone they want.
Widowhood rites, Dipo rites, witches camps, female genital mutilation, trokosi….a violation of the life and body of women in the name of religion or culture has plagued the society for generations!
Bottom line, African men have no respect for women! But a woman must be married or she’s not complete, so we have a bunch of ignorant women who give agency to the male exploitation agenda”.
Although the issue dominated discussions on radio and television it seems to have gone to rest like any other issue does in Ghana.
Some of the movies she’s directed ‘I Sing of a Well’ 2009, ‘Sinking Sands’ 2010, and ‘Ties That Bind’ 2011 became block buster at the Cinemas.
