Moesha Budonita Boduong has apologised to Ghanaians over her unguarded statement about her country’s women in a recent interview with the CNN.
Many Ghanaian women have taken to social media to criticise the young actress over her claims on CNN that Ghana’s economy is so bad that women are compelled to have sexual affairs with men just to survive.
“Ghana our economy is such that you just need someone to take care of you because you can’t make enough money as a woman here,” she told Christiane Amanpour on her show, Sex & Love Around The World.
But she didn’t get it easy at all, as majority of Ghanaians took to social media to lambast her. They argued she shouldn’t have generalised her comment since it is not a true representation of the lives of many Ghanaian women.
There are a number of women who put in an effort to better their lives instead of opting for sex for favours.
In an Instagram post on Friday, Moesha had apologised over her statement. She was remorseful and sorry for putting all women under an umbrella as her.
She wrote, “Dear gh (Ghana ) this is Moesha. I have been humbled by all that is going on and I have also learnt a lot in the last few days since the CNN video came out. I have had a lot of time to think and reflect and I APOLOGIZE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY MY AFRICAN SISTERS.
“I pray u all find it in your hearts to forgive me. It was definitely not my intention to offend any of you. I respect all the hard working women of our beloved country and accept that some of my utterances were not a reflection of what happens in most homes. GOD works in mysterious ways and everything happens because he says so.
“Thanks for the love, pieces of advice and criticisms. GOD bless us all! The full version of the interview drops this weekend and I hope you can appreciate what I said in its entirety. Thank you. God bless you all!”
