- The wife of a Ghanaian man has left him after his business went bad and he lost all his money
- They have been married for six years and have two children together but this seems to have not been enough for her to stand by him
- According to the wife, she would return if the man got back on his feet financially
A Ghanaian man has found himself in a dilemma after his wife decided to pack out of their matrimonial home until his financial situation gets better.
The man, whose name has not been disclosed, recounted his sad love story in a letter to popular relationship talkshow Sister Sister on CitiTV and CitiFM.
According to the heartbroken husband, he and his wife, who works as a banker have been married for six years and have two children together.
In their third year of marriage, the man's business collapsed and it became increasingly difficult to feed the family, which caused his wife's attitude to change dramatically.
She would call him all sorts of names, including 'good-for-nothing', and also started cheating on him unapologetically.
As a result, the businessman travelled to Saudi Arabia for greener pastures but things only got worse, which forced him to go back to Ghana.
Upon his return, she left with an ultimatum that unless he worked out his financial troubles, there was no coming back for her.
Meanwhile, Mariam Wanzala, a mother of two from Kenya, has been left inconsolable after her husband left her to raise her children alone. The 39-year-old nurse was once lively and active before a deadly tumour robbed her of her sight and reduced her to moving around using a cane.
Briefly.co.za learned that the lady used to be a nurse in Eldoret before discovering she had a life-threatening brain tumour that needed to be removed urgently, Citizen TV reported.
Mariam went through her first operation in 2014 with hopes she would recuperate and go back to living her life but everything went south shortly after the procedure.
“I was born normal and was not blind when growing up. I had a scan which showed I had a brain tumour. I was then told I needed to undergo an operation,” the mother of two said.
After developing complications, Mariam learnt she had free fluid in her head and needed to be operated on again. By that time, she had lost her sight and was fighting for her life.
Despite all this, the dedicated mom did not lose hope. The lady, whose past seven years have been harrowing, had to stop working as she was still unwell and blind.
Her husband left after learning Mariam was never going to regain her sight.
“He told me to take my youngest child, pick a cup and start begging in the streets so I could be helped,” Mariam said.
The 39-year-old walked from one hospital to another hoping maybe a doctor would manage to return her eyesight, but money was an issue. She then returned to her ancestral home to live with her mother.
