In Spring 2019 Addeah Prempeh contacted a Ghanaian Member of Parliament, Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, and persuaded her to give him money for his studies in the Netherlands. She now realizes he scammed her.
Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings is the eldest daughter of former President of Ghana Jerry Rawlings and a champion for women’s and children’s rights and the environment. In 2017 Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh approached her to speak at his Ghana Readers Club event, to help promote reading in the nation. She posted the pictures of this event on her Facebook timeline, which is how we found her and why we contacted her.
In an e-mail dated September 16, 2019, she explained: “I met Addeah for the first time in the same year he did his reading event. He approached me in Parliament with a convincing pitch. When I got to the venue I saw Dutch ambassador Ron Strikker as well as a rep from the USAID there. I suppose it added more legitimacy.”
