“Herbert Addo was rejected by family on his sickbed,” Widow reveals


Wife of the late coach Herbert Addo, Mrs Gifty Acquah has made a devastating disclosure of how the former Ghana coach was abandoned by his family whiles on his sickbed.

The bereaved wife has been faced with vilification from the late coach’s family, who have accused her of forsaking her sick husband.

Nevertheless, Mrs. Addo dismissed those claims during an interview on Atinka TV.

“A doctor recommended that we take him to Cuba to expedite his healing so he ( Herbert Addo) made a call to his younger brother (Philip Addo) who had then sold portions of the family land for over GHC2.5 billion to come help him with some funds to aid him to travel to Cuba for healing.”

“But to the disappointment of the coach his brother never offered the help”, Mrs Acquah said amidst tears,” she added

The comment by Mrs. Addo is in sharp contrast to an earlier claim by one of the coach’s brothers, Philip Addo who accused the British High Commission of denying the late coach a visa to England to seek medical attention.

She disclosed that due to the cold relationship that existed between the former Aduana Stars coach and his daughters, they did not shower him with the care and love he needed whiles on his sickbed.

Mrs. Addo revealed that on a countless number of occasions Herbert Addo’s brothers and daughters turned down pleas by their brother and father respectively to come to his aid.

Coach Herbert Addo was buried on Saturday 24th June in a burial ceremony that was marred by chaos and confusion over his place of interment.
