Moving abroad has always been the dream of many, but a recent story by Twitter user Ama Cherries (@EweGirl_) has shade light on the real situation of African women who follow white men abroad.
In 2017 I wanted to leave Ghana for good. My plan was to get work in Germany because I was dating a German man. He managed to book me a ticket to Germany. I even got a visa s3f Cat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joy he was living in Munich (most racist)
He used to take me with him to see his friends and family. That also stopped.
When someone came over he would tell me to stay in the room.
I started sleeping on the floor. We used to share a bed. But I was on the floor with just a sheet.
One day I cooked meat for him. It was well done. He threw the meat back at me and told me that I should not cook my bush food for him. In the process of all that I scored a burn on my chest. Which I treated alone.
When I had my periods. He would find me on the floor because I could not sleep on his bed. And he would kick me and say how I am lying and that I do not want to work and clean the house. Guys. Fear Germans. Fear them. I used to cry every night.
One day. We were out at a restaurant and I order burger and chips with milkshake. He told me that I am fat and ugly and when we got home. He made me strip and stand infront of the mirror. He started pinching my fat and calling me a black bitch.
Then one day I wanted to leave. I just said I will go to the airport and tell them to take me back to Ghana. But I couldn’t find my passport. He had taken it. That night I asked him to buy for me a flight back to Ghana. He told me that he is not my parent and I should call my mom
All this time I had lied to my family that I was enjoying Germany. I could not handle embarrassment and shame. I kept calm.
This is now 2018 August. I still had not fallen pregnant.
He was also using condom when we had sex to avoid me from getting pregnant. He started to starve me. Everytime I wanted to eat I would have to ask him because the fridge was lock.
One day when I was cleaning. I found my passport and I kept it. Chale.
When he came from work. I hadn’t clean the bathroom. He kicked me out on the streets. I went to a police station and told them that I was kicked out.
I show am my passport. They locked me up Cat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joyCat face with tears of joy Ama Cherries
I gave them his address in Munich. He came to the police cell. He told them that he found me on the streets because I had overstayed and that I had nowhere else to go and he housed me and fed me.
