‘I Was Raped When I was 11’ – Maurice Ampaw
Ghanaian lawyer, Maurice Ampaw has revealed that he was raped when he was just eleven years old. The maverick celebrity lawyer made this interesting revelation at the ongoing ‘Orgasm Conference’ in Accra, hosted by counsellor George Lutterodt.
I quite remember the first day I broke my virginity, it was r*pe…at the age of I think 11 years. We had this girl who was 18 years and was from Chokor and I from Sukura.
So we did what we called ‘Maame ne Paapa’, so she said she was Maame and I was Paapa. Most of these things happens especially in compound houses. You know where you have a young girl telling a young boy you are my husband.
Some of them start to have s*x with the young ones without their consent which is very bad. If you are a lady and you have s*x with a guy below the age of 16 years, you have defiled him. You can go to prison maximum 25 years and minimum 7 years.
The annual Orgasm Conference, hosted by Counsellor George Lutterodt, is aimed at educating and sensitizing married couples on the rules governing sex and marriage.
