A MUCH-publicized wedding between a US-based Ghanaian and a lady, said to be a banker, could not take place on Saturday because the father of the soon-to-be groom, had secured a court injunction to stop the proposed wedding.
According to Mr. Joseph Agyenim Boateng (the applicant/complainant), his son, Charles Boateng, was legally married to another Ghanaian lady in the US, hence his decision to stop another wedding here in Ghana.
“I have secured an injunction from the High Court in Kumasi to stop the wedding from taking place at St. Theresa Catholic Church at Asawase in Kumasi. I am a Catholic and I worship with the Abuakwa Parish and so I cannot look on for my son, who has a wife in the US, to marry another woman in Ghana.
“I was the one, who led my son to get married to his first wife, so if I allow him to marry another lady it may result in a legal issue, which I want to avoid”, he told an Accra-based radio station.
Mr. Boateng added: “I initially warned the church not to supervise the wedding but I later realized that they have manufactured invitation cards, meaning the wedding is taking place. I therefore decided to go to court and secure an injunction to stop the wedding”.
According to him, his son and his wife in the US are blessed with two beautiful children. He therefore stressed that if his son indeed wanted a new wife, he should legally divorce the first wife so that he could marry the new lady.
