Ghanaian Fighter who Grabbed Girls Oranges Come Under Fire
Have you seen the video of Ghanaian boxer Bukom Banku fondling the parts of some two little girls? Actress Ama K Abebrese is not finding it funny that such a personality could publicly grope the girls without minding the consequence.
Ama is asking that the authority to look into the matter but some of the ladies who saw the video are not in agreement with Ama. Ama asked “Why is he grabbing the bre*st of young girls on camera? If this is what he does publicly I don't even want to imagine what happens behind closed doors. This is not in any way funny. Is disturbing, it's abusive and I hope the relevant authorities deal with it. The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection needs to investigate this.”
This brought up arguments with some women insisting that Banku did no wrong. Ama exclaimed “It is very worrying to me the amount of comments that are blaming these young girls saying that they are 'enjoying it' and calling them all sorts of names. If these girls are underage, then what he is doing is abusive. I do not know their age but they look young.”
She continued “It's important to note that whether they look like they are enjoying it or not does not stop it being abusive. Most people that are groomed from a young age and molested over a period of time do not any better. The psyche of abuse victims is rather complex. If these girls have been abused their whole lives, they do not know any better. Some young girls and boys are sexually and emotionally abused from an early age. So by the time they grow up they think it's normal behaviour. They are victims and some do not even realise it.
She concludes “Furthermore, if you think that it is OK that a grown man will engage in this sort of behaviour with young people, then you are also part of the bigger problem of our society and why so many abusers/predators continue to abuse and molest young people and get away with it.”
