New evidence has emerged showing that Swedish wife of convicted Ghanaian footballer, Kwame Bonsu, might have accused him of raping her in marriage because she wanted him convicted to gain some money.

The player himself, on the other hand, denied the allegations and claimed that ex-wife “could not handle” that he wanted a divorce.
The secretly recorded video was first shared on Instagram by former Ghana international, Yussif Chibsah and offers an insight into the stormy relationship between the convicted Ghanaian footballer, Kwame Bonsu and his ex-wife.
Bonsu was handed a two-year jail term on Friday after he was convicted for marital rape by the Gavle District Court.
