Midland case: Assaulted woman Receives an apartment and a shop from Despite; GHS 40, 000 donations from Ghanaians
The woman who was assaulted by a police officer at a Midland Savings and Loans branch has reportedly received cash donations to the tune of GHc40,000.
There was outrage among the majority of Ghanaians following footages of a policeman mercilessly beating up a woman, later identified as Patience Sarfo. In the said video, the police officer is captured beating up the woman despite she carrying a baby in her hands.
Patience had entered the Midland Savings and Loan banking hall after transaction hours to withdraw some money. However, she was refused the transaction on the explanation that banking hours were over and that she could therefore not withdraw her money. Upon insisting, the police officer, who has since been identified as Frederick Amanor, was called to drive the woman out of the banking hall.
kafuidanku This is so unacceptable! A woman holding a baby being abused like nobody’s business, are we animals ? Can’t we communicate as a people ? Are there no laws in our country? I don’t know what her offence is but does it warrant this humiliation? Women and men who truly support women, please speak up for this poor woman and her child . We have laws and they must work ! By the way ,s the abuser really a police officer ?

The one minute-twenty-seven seconds (1:27) video which was apparently recorded by an onlooker captured the policeman abusing the lady, first hitting her with an umbrella and then later countlessly slapping her on the face, before dragging her out.
Several Ghanaians took to various social media platforms to condemn the actions of the policeman, who has since been remanded by the Police administration.
But in a rather kind gesture, Patience has received several donations from Ghanaians following her ordeal.
Reports suggest that she has received cash donations amounting to GHc40,000, as well as foodstuff and clothing. Further reports also claim that Peace FM and the Despite Group have offered her an apartment and shop.
Also, NPP National Women’s Organiser Kate Gyamfua donated rice and other foodstuffs plus GHC 5,000 cash to the woman who was assaulted by that monster in uniform.
