A 43-year-old man, Yaw Atta and his son, Kwame Tawiah, are currently recovering from machete wounds at the Sefwi Juaboso Government Hospital after butchering each other in a fight over a woman.
The incident happened at Dedemude, a village in Juaboso District in the Western Region.
The struggle between father and son started when the father accused the 20-year-old son of bonking his step mother, Akosua Asantewaa.
The father told Adom FM’s Joshua Kulenu that the son has been doing this for the past two years and had no intention of stopping despite warnings from him to put an end to the forbidden act.
The tension between father and son over wife and step mother, respectively, reached a crescendo this week when the dad carried out his threat to kill the son and attacked the son with a machete.
“My dad raised the machete with the intention of chopping off my head but I blocked it with my hand, my hand was almost chopped off but I managed to seize the machete and also attacked him…,” Tawiah said on Adom FM.
Yaw Atta sustained injuries to the neck and the head after the attack.
The two are currently receiving treatment at the Sefwi Juaboso Government Hospital.
Two years of bonking
Speaking on Adom FM’s Evening News on Thursday, Yaw Atta claimed that the son has been sleeping with the wife for two consecutive years now.
He claimed he sought spiritual help after which he cautioned the son of the consequences of the amorous act but he refused to heed his warning and still continued to bonk her.
Kwame Tawiah when reached on phone confirmed that he had been having an affair with the step mum but claimed it was not as frequent as the Dad claimed.
“The day Ebony died was when I had sex with her and that has not happened again…I don’t know what came over me that day”, he said.
He was thus shocked that the father will claim that he was in the habit of bonking his step-mum.
The mum, 30-year-old Akosua Asantewaa has disputed the boy’s claims, saying she had had an affair with the stepson for a week.
“I was lying on my bed on the day Ebony died when Tawiah came into the room and forced himself on me, he kissed me and that is all I can remember…we have since then been having sex for a week,” she said.
The woman who claimed she and her family had compensated the man since then added: “I don’t know what came over and caused me to have sex with Tawiah.”
The mother of five claimed the work rate of the father and son in bed were at par.
Interestingly, she could not confirm if she was pregnant or not.
