Singer Kwaw Kese has opened up about the death of his newborn baby who died 24 hours after delivery at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
According to Kwaw Kese, Korle-Bu children’s ward should be blamed for his newborn baby’s death. He compared the situation at the children’s ward to that of prison.
“I have been to prison before and if I tell you there’s no difference between the children’s ward and prison I bet you, I’m being very truthful. It is extremely unhealthy, the situation there is pathetic,” he told Starr FM in an interview this morning.
He added: “The situation at the Korle Bu Children’s Ward was an eyesore. I wish after saying this you’ll come and have a look at it yourself or you’ll send your colleague journalists to report on the issue.
“You have to see the children’s emergency unit, trust me. What the newborn babies and their mothers go through is pathetic. I mean this ward that houses new born babies, I’m talking about a day old baby. The place is extremely vulnerable, anything at all can happen to those babies.”
Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with Kwaw Kese an his family in these difficult times.
