"He said he was in love but was not ready to marry then. So I had to wait for him to finish his studies then he would come back. I accepted because I too was not ready for marriage at 23," she told Momanyi in an interview.

Shortly after, the man left for his studies. However, the two would often communicate through letters. Joan thought the man would be back in a year, but that did not happen.

After three years, she couldn't take it anymore and demanded to know when he would return. The man quickly sent his parents to hers, requesting for dowry arrangements to be made.

He even paid my dowry, Joan said

The parents agreed on the dowry, and it was delivered.

"The parents brought KSh 25,000 and part of the 12 cows that were requested. He then began to promise me that he would be back in a month, but would change his story every time. He kept pushing the date and this got me worried," Joan said.

One day, Joan received a heavy envelope from the post office. She was excited, knowing her love had sent her something special. She was often receiving some dollars from him and this, she thought, was no different.

But the shock she got after opening the envelope was unmatched.

Envelope containing shocking news

Inside the envelope were letters, many letters.

"All the letters I ever wrote to him. Then there was another letter from a woman. She claimed to be his wife. She told me that the two were married and if I was in doubt, I should call their pastor who wedded them. Then she included the pastor's number," Joan recalled.

Joan's heart was shattered. She took the letter to his uncle and informed him about the discovery, and he promised to follow up with him.

To date, Joan has never heard from the man. She got married elsewhere and now has two children.

Joan said this incident broke her heart.

"Neighbours who were there when the dowry was brought began to gossip about me," she recalled, adding that she had to be strong.

The 80-year-old revealed that he had four children with different women while living at Osu in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

Bushira told SVTV Africa's DJ Nyaami in a recent interview that he has experienced cold like never before and would not encourage the youth to leave their home country.
