John Mensah gets new wife


Information reaching News-One indicates that former Black Stars captain, John Mensah, will be mar­rying a new wife on Saturday, November 15.

The only information on John’s wife-to-be is that her name is Mimi and she is a well brought up beautiful lady from a Christian home.

Reports say on Saturday John and Mimi will be having a traditional marriage ceremony, after which they will have a white wedding before the end of the year.

The venue for Saturday’s marriage ceremony is being kept away from the media and will be a strictly by invita­tion ceremony reserved for close family and friends.

John and his former wife officially divorced early this year. They were married for over ten years during which period they had four children.

Early reports on the divorce case suggested that it was Henrietta who filed the divorce petition, with the excuse that John had become an irresponsible father who was refusing to cater for the children.

Henrietta also accused John of infidelity in the divorce petition.

When news broke about the divorce petition, John Mensah, in an interview with Accra-based Radio XYZ, denied the allegations of infidelity and child neglect.

“I do what every responsible father has to do for his children and I have no reason not to cater for their needs…I do well to send them money as I know they will need it. And I have always been taking responsibility of everything else including their school fees,” John Mensah noted.

The station further quoted Henrietta to have said it was not her wish to end her marriage and that John should be blamed for the situation.

“‘The divorce is from John Mensah but you will take it that I took it to court so it’s me; but seriously when you look at things well, it’s not my fault.. .1 don’t know the rea­son why. He only knows the reason why.

“I don’t want the marriage to come this way but it has come to a point that I don’t have anything to do now… My parents are still married; why must I destroy my mar­riage? …We started from nowhere and by God’s grace we’ve been lifted to this place. If I’m a bad wife, we could­n’t have lived [together] for such a long time; so there’s something somewhere…If I’m not a good wife, I can’t take care of four children while my husband is away working,” Henrietta was quoted.
