If you are a man hoping to win a case against a woman or a number of women who
may have raped you, then you would probably have to forget it as the law doesn't favor
adult male rape victims.
This revelation was made on The Late Afternoon Show on GHOne TV on Monday when
the host posed a question to her guest and legal practitioner, George Tetteh-Wayo
wondering if a man can be raped.
According to the lawyer, rape is in respect of a female: carnal knowledge of a female,
according to section 97 of the 1960 constitution and as a result. He further expatiated
on the law which however favors males under the age of 16 who are defiled.
His assertions were backed by Chief Superintendent Owusua Kyeremeh, National
Coordinating Director for DOVVSU who run us through the process by which alleged
perpetrators are brought to book.
The Late Afternoon Show delves into social issues, real life stories and lifestyle from the
point of the young, fun and vibrant adult. With a mixed bag of everything that is
