Former NDC member of parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak has given a swift response to his ex-wife, Rasheeda Adam after five years of divorce.
According to Ras Mubarak, recent abuse rants by his former wife has awakened him from his sleep and called for a rebuttal.
Madam Rasheeda Adams took to Facebook to write an epistle on her own tale of abuse at the expense of the former member of parliament which led her to seek divorce and fight an endless legal battle.
Her rants comes after she linked what she experienced during her marriage to Ras Mubarak to the most unfortunate abuse of Lilian Dedjoe by her husband, which reportedly led to Lilian’s untimely death in East Legon – Accra, Ghana.
She wrote; “
“Leave leave leave” but when I left and told my story, -I was called names you wouldn’t believe-Foot-soldiers were dispatched to insult me from dawn to dusk-No one was willing to help in any way because they were “afraid people will say they’re encouraging me to divorce”
-The courts frustrated me
-The state protected him(MPs have more important things to do than go to court
-My abuser still had access to me because of kids and frustrated me to no end.
-I was Denied child support for a long time because I was told if my children and I starved long enough we would return.
-My own sister, gave me her apartment and collected the rent in full, and even harassed me for the money, never mind that I was struggling with two kids on my own. My own family member.
-Everyone called me a drama queen; I was leaving a whole MP “because of a few slaps”?, they said I was overreacting. (It wasn’t a few slaps, it was full-scale beatings for years)
-I Spent Many a sleepless night figuring out how to build up my life back to what it was before things got derailed while nursing a 3-month-old and looking after a 3 yr old.
-All those days showing up at meetings with my sleeping child in a car seat
-That you’re basically on your own in this world
-That no amount of help is coming from any quarter to reset your life for you.
-That most of the people who seem like they want to help, just want to come and clean out the small remaining flesh hanging on your carcass and may not mean you well.
Now here we are, better than we’ve ever been, more comfortable that we’ve ever been.
Life is 10 times better for my children and I.
My smile is back, my glow is back, when I laugh, it extends into the pits of my stomach again. Life is pretty much perfect. It wasn’t easy though.
It took so much work, and my bones still ache from the amount of labor on my plate each day. I work and I look after my kids, surrounded by love, and that’s all a soul needs, to be it at it’s peaceful best. So when I say leave that abusive man you’re married to and you’ll be fine, I don’t say it to trivialize your pain. I say it because I know you can do it. I just need you to believe it too.”
In a swift response to the above claims by Madam Rasheeda, Mr Mubarak, who is now married to an Algerian wrote;
“Ignore attention seeking x Wife
In 5years since Ms. Adams packed and emptied my house, I have never paid attention to any of the issues she’d leveled against me save in court. And it has been so for good reason – the respect I have for my my kids, family and community. Secondly, I have never been bothered because if she can hate her own father enough not to want him at her wedding, if she can hate the man who gave birth to her and named her, enough not to attend his his funeral when he passed away, peddling falsehood against me shouldn’t be anything.
However, her latest attempt to link her issues with the most unfortunate abuse of #Lilian Dedjoe by her husband, which reportedly led to Lilian’s untimely death can’t pass without a rebuttal. I got tag and trolled by all manner of characters over her latest meltdown. Integrity is not sold on the market, and lies told too many times tend to be believable.
For five or so years now, she has seized every opportunity from unsuspecting and gullible journalists and bloggers to abuse me in mainstream and on social media. I’ve been trolled and called all manner of things by cowards hiding behind phones and computers. It’s never bothered me one bit. I have a tough skin.”
