My daughter poisoned my husband – Woman suspects

A Ghanaian woman is suspecting her 21-year-old daughter of poisoning her own father the day she returned from school.

The woman who has been shocked and pained by the demise of her husband sent her story to Facebook's David Papa Bondze-Mbir on condition of anonymity.

She explained that her daughter, a university student, who hardly cooks the family meal, opted to do the cooking that day she returned from school. She prepared fufu for the family but prepared rice and vegetable stew for her father separately.

"My daughter returned from school days ago and opted to cook for the family. She hardly would cook at home. And I think she prepared her father’s meal separately", she wrote.

The woman woke up the next morning next to the lifeless body of her husband.

"I woke up next to my husband’s dead body the following morning."

Her daughter didn't show any sign of grieve or emotions at the death of her biological father, rather, she chose to pack her things to go back to school.

"My daughter just went back to school in the morning, acting all ‘normal’, even after finding out her father had died in his sleep. She’s not grieving, she’s not sad nor mourning. It’s like, nothing really happened to her that day", she told David Bondze-Mbir in the conversation.

This act, her mother explains, could be attributed to she (daughter) finding out her father was cheating on his wife for five years.

“She found out my husband had been sleeping with another lady,” she said.

She added that "over five years. My daughter came to finally understand why I was often very sad and brokenhearted for years, and also, why I always wanted a separation from her father. I couldn’t move out because of my children. I was staying for them to not miss out on having both of their parents around them", she added.

This was the text message she received from her daughter the day she returned to school.

“Ma, I hope you’re not going to be crying after all that he did to you, and to us? It’s good he’s dead, you know? Just cheer up. We will work hard to take very good care of you. You’re too good to be still married to him. He let all of us down. He sinned greatly against you, and he tried turning us against you, our mother. I will never forgive him for that; even in his death. The wages of sin is death, Ma. I’m glad he’s dead. Plan his funeral without me in it. He lost the right to be my father. I love you, Ma.”

The morning her father died, she sent this text message to her mother:

“Ma, I hope you’re not going to be crying after all that he did to you, and to us? It’s good he’s dead, you know? Just cheer up. We will work hard to take very good care of you. You’re too good to be still married to him. He let all of us down. He sinned greatly against you, and he tried turning us against you, our mother. I will never forgive him for that; even in his death. The wages of sin is death, Ma. I’m glad he’s dead. Plan his funeral without me in it. He lost the right to be my father. I love you, Ma.”
