Come And Help Me; i'm Suffering - President’s mother’ languishing as a beggar at Premuase

I’M SUFFERING; COME AND HELP ME -‘President’s mother’ languishing as a beggar at Premuase



Travelling from Accra to Kejeji, capital of the Sene East District in the Brong-Ahafo Region, one of the new districts created in 2012, takes more than nine hours, using a V8.

Travelling from Accra to Kejeji, capital of the Sene East District in the Brong-Ahafo Region, one of the new districts created in 2012, takes more than nine hours, using a V8.

Accra to Atebubu is a smooth journey, but it is very uncomfortable continuing the journey from Atebubu to Kwame Danso, capital of the Sene West district, because the road is rough, untarred and very dusty.

It even turns out to be a near-hell of experience travelling further from Kwame Danso to Kejeji, the capital of a district with no single tarred road. But now, the Mahama government has commissioned a vote-inducing surfacing work to be carried out on the road. Contractors were on site at the time of our visit.

Premuase is a very popular village in the area, not just because the next town ahead of it is Kejeji, the district capital, but it is because a very important person is languishing there, living virtually as a beggar, thus becoming an object of scorn to her fellow villagers.

The first thing one is greeted with upon entering the Premuase village is extreme poverty and deprivation. But that is not more of an issue to many of the villagers. The major issue which is a constant talk in the town is the pathetic living conditions of a particular woman at the village.




The villagers find it difficult to understand why this woman should be living like a virtual beggar even though she is ‘the president’s mother.’

President John Dramani Mahama calls this woman Maame Dansoa because that was how his late father, E.A. Mahama, a Northern Regional Commissioner in the government of Kwame Nkrumah, used to call her.

According to Maame Akosua Dansoa, she took care of President Mahama and the rest of his siblings during their childhood, bathing them, washing their clothes, cooking for them and sending them to school.

Maame Dansoa’s younger mother, Auntie Grace, was married to President Mahama’s father. She was brought into the late Mr Mahama’s household to take care of the domestic affairs.

Little John Mahama and his siblings from the same mother had to be made a part of their father’s household, to live with their other siblings from a different mother, Auntie Grace, under the care of Maame Dansoa.

Maame Dansoa stayed with the Mahama family in Tamale and Accra for almost twenty four years, during which the late E. A Mahama showed her much affection because she was a humble girl and a very good cook, whose meals the family would not sacrifice for any other person’s meals.

One very important moment she still cherishes was when President Mahama’s late father showed her Queen Elizabeth, from England, when the British Monarch visited Ghana.
