KKD remanded over rape charges

Radio personality and entertainment icon Kwesi Kyei Darkwa has been
remanded in prison custody over a charge of rape brought against him
by the police.

He was remanded by the Kaneshie District Magistrates' Court on Tuesday
December 30 to reappear on January 8, 2015.

KKD, as he is popularly called, is alleged to have raped a 19-year-old
lady in the washroom of a hotel in Accra.

The Ghanaian celebrity was arrested by the police on Saturday,
December 27, for the allegedly raping the 19-year-old.

He was detained by the airport police over the allegation but his
lawyer, Nana Asante Bediatuo who visited him expressed confidence he
would be granted bail.

The showbiz personality later admitted he had sex with the lady but
denied it was without her consent.

KDD said he actually had a drink with the lady after act but was
picked up shortly after two gentlemen he suspects have a relationship
with the lady lodged a complaint against him and alleging he raped the
lady.

Sunday, the police made things murkier by publicly announcing that KKD
was being investigated for sexual assault, an unknown offence in
Ghana's criminal justice system.
KKD was expected to be taken to court on Monday, but the police failed to do so.

The entertainment icon appeared in court Tuesday with his lawyers
hopeful that he would be granted bail.

The Magistrates' Court had other ideas; it remanded the iconic
entertainer, compounding his magnificent fall in a matter of days.
