Contrary to popular belief, our various prisons are not overrun with homosexuals. Akuapem Poloo, who has had firsthand experience with incarceration, has shared her thoughts on the perception of lesbianism in female prisons.
The mother of one of the inmates who was released about a week ago after paying the GHC12,000 fine claims she did not witness any instances of a fellow inmate having sexual relations with another woman.
According to Akuapem Poloo, the notion that the majority of female prisoners are lesbians should be abandoned because it is deceptive and false.
She described how she and a large group of other inmates bathed together in a large bathroom, but no one made sexual advances toward each other.
The former ex-convict also emphasized the neatness she saw and praised the prison officers for being strict about personal hygiene.
During her interview with Sammy Kay, Akuapem Poloo also thanked Rev Owusu Bempah, DKB, Chief Of Tepa, and all the other generous people who contributed to her freedom.
