Fake pregnant woman bought belly bump for ₵30 from market- Prosecutor tells court



The prosecutor handling the case involving Josephine Panin Mensah, the fake pregnant woman in Takoradi has said she bought the belly bump at GHS30 from the Takoradi Market Circle.

Emmanuel Basintale told the Takoradi Harbour Circuit Court A on Monday that Josephine Panyin Mensah bought the belly bump to give the impression that she was pregnant.

Meanwhile, the woman whose story has assumed widespread attention all over the internet pleaded not guilty in her first appearance in court on Monday, Citi News reports.

This is in spite of the claims by the police that she had confessed to faking the kidnapping and the pregnancy.

Citi News’ Akwesi Agyei Anim said the woman, who was brought to the Takoradi Habour Circuit Court A by police around 6:00 am, appeared calm


She is facing two charges of deceiving a public officer and publication of false news with intent to cause fear and panic.

The acting Director-General in charge of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori in an earlier interview said the police were going to prosecute her because she wasted their resources by creating such a fake story and sending them on a wild goose chase.

“There is a greater possibility that she might appear before the court because she manufactured all these things with a figment of her own imagination and put the police into business. And we deployed a 40-member search team and even when we located her through public assistance, we took her to the hospital with policemen providing security, and where she claimed to have attended antenatal clinics, it turned out to be false. We went in for a second opinion and got a team of doctors to work on her,” ACP Kwesi Ofori said.
