CCTV From Hotel Throws More Light on the KKD rape case. (READ MORE)





Lawyers for KKD claim CCTV footage from the  Hotel shows Ghanaian celebrity, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah, and the victim of a rape case kissing romantically before and after  the alleged incident.

In their application latest for bail filed at the Human Rights Courts in Accra Today, Wednesday the 31st,  KKD’s legal team referred to the video from the security cameras at the hotel, which they claim showed the 19 year old “romantically kissing” KKD before the alleged rape.

The team also added that “most importantly after the alleged rape was said to have occurred, the footage shows the accused and the complainant walking together from the hotel suite through the hotel lobby in much the same manner as they entered the hotel.”


The alleged rape victim did not report to the Police

The lawyers also questioned the claims made by the complainant, arguing that the allegation of rape was “a mere afterthought” since the initial complainant was not the alleged victim but her male companion.

“Surprisingly, the person who the prosecution claims to have been raped was not the initial complainant in this matter but a male companion even though she is an adult female,” the application said.

“The complainant came out of the bathroom in the full glare of the other two persons including her own cousin, in the room and yet the facts do not show that she informed either of them that she had been raped by the accused person whilst in the bathroom.”

KKD is currently in police custody after being arrested on Saturday, December 27, after he was accused of rape of rape by a 19-year-old, Ewuraeffe Orleans Thompson.

KKD was denied bail yesterday.
