Out from no where, a second wife of the slain Member of Parliament for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford, who was murdered last week has shown up.
Reports reaching odradeyghnews indicate that, the late MP for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford was married to two women.
The wife of the late MP known to the public is Ophelia Hayford who has been selected by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to replace him as the parliamentary candidate for the upcoming December 7 elections.
However, a second wife identified as Sarah Quansah Hayford has also shown up and according to her, she met the late MP in 2009. She also indicated that the late MP at the time they met told her that he had divorced his wife.
The second wife to the Late MP told Kasapa FM‘s Akwasi Nsiah that she got married to the late MP on 8th June, 2013 at a public event that saw them signing their marriage documents.
She later got to know that the late MP was still married to his first wife in 2016 after her 1st wife Ophelia found out about their marriage and started sending her threatening messages.
“At the time Ophelia called me, I had been married to Ekow for the past three years and living with him at Tarkwa. Feeling very shocked, I called my husband and asked him who Ophelia was? He told me to ignore her whenever she calls me and I told him he needed to explain things to me because the woman keeps sending me text messages. It emerged that he had not officially divorced his first wife as he indicated but he couldn’t tell me the truth, the reason why I agreed to marry him. I asked what was the way forward and my late husband told me that he’ll sort out the issue and so I was waiting for his action. But since then I never heard from anyone including his first wife. I’ve been staying with him at Tarkwa and he visits his mother occasionally on weekends being the only child.
“When the matter came up I went to see his mother for a discussion and she told me to hold my peace and that the issue has already happened. It is true that her son is already married and has married me as well. All the family members know and accept that Ekow has two wives and so I shouldn’t be worried. This is what his mother told me,” Sarah added.
