President for the National Kayaye Association, Adiza Isunah, has lamented how their husbands overburden them with lots of demands after they migrate to the southern part of Ghana for greener pastures.
She claims that as a result of these demands, they are unable to purchase healthy food for consumption in order to conserve money to purchase these products and other stuff.
She made her submission in a chat with a lawyer known as Inuah Yusif.
She said: “One thing they have complained to me is that the list their husbands give them when they are coming here from the North is too much.
“The men give them a long list telling them to buy them this and that some men even tell them to buy motorbikes and because of that, they don’t buy any proper food to eat,
Hajiah Isunah also revealed that some men in Northern Ghana neglect to care for their spouses when they become pregnant, prompting their ladies to travel from the north to engage in Kayaye business with pregnancies.
As a result, she urges the authorities to pay attention to Kayaye women in the Northern area, as their husbands do not treat them fairly.
“What pains me the most is that they don’t take care of their wives when they impregnate them, you will see a Kayaye woman with one-month pregnancy, you will ask them to go back, by the time you realise she has given birth in a vehicle.”
“I will write a letter to the president, chief of staff, and the parliament to help the Kayaye women because they are suffering.” she added.
