Ghanaian husbands who refuse to eat food prepared by their wives risk going to jail for up to two years.

Those men could also be fined 500 penalty units which is equivalent to $1000 (GH¢6,000) if convicted.

Police say men not eating food prepared by their wives are committing an offence.

They can be charged for emotional abuse, according to a senior official of Ghana’s Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the police service, Superintendent George Appiah-Sakyi.

He is quoted by local media as saying that “If your husbands refuse to eat your food and make you unhappy and causes you emotional pain, you can also report them to the police. If your husband comes home late and causes you to be unhappy you can make a case at DOVVSU.”

In June last year the same official said married men in Ghana should report their wives who wear jeans to bed to deny them sex.

George Appiah-Sakyi at the time said wives who deny their husbands sex are abusing them emotionally.

He was quoted by the Ghana News Agency as saying that “denying your spouse sex amounted to emotional abuse”.

“If your wife wears jeans to sleep and causing you emotional abuse, its an offence and you can report her to DOVVSU,” he stated.
