Rapper, Kwaw Kese, who was standing trial for a narcotics related offence has been sentenced to a day’s imprisonment.

A Kumasi High Court Thursday ruled that he should also pay a fine of GHc 1, 200.

The Judge William Boampong further ruled that should he default in paying the 1200 he would do some three days in prison. enewsgh.com however understands that Kwaw has paid the fine.

He is due for release tomorrow.

Arrested on the weekend of Saturday November 22, 2014, at a popular pub in the Ashanti Regional capital, he spent some one month appealing for bail while on remand.

After being denied on two occasions, a new plea for bail on health grounds was finally upheld on December 30 in the sum of GHC 80, 000 with one surety without justification. The prosecution did not oppose to the application.

Kese subsequently spent time at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for a stomach-related complication prior to a December 30 ruling, which saw him being granted bail.

He has since started a personal campaign to highlight the harsh conditions in Ghana’s prisons.
