A 30-year-old pregnant woman died with her unborn baby at the Suntreso Government Hospital in Kumasi on Wednesday, 4 July 2018 after the health post refused her entry into the labour ward because her husband could not immediately pay a GHC500 'Doctor Motivation Fee'.

Angela Afriyie Agyemang later died at the theatre just as her husband had made available the GHC500 fee for which she had been denied medical attention.

Pastor Solomon Lamo Latiff of the House of Faith Ministry in Kumasi, husband to the deceased, said he had taken his wife to the hospital the previous day when she started experiencing labour pangs after her due date exceeded by a week.

He told Moro Awudu on Class91.3FM's Executive Breakfast Show that one Dr Sarpong then informed him that a Caesarean Section (CS) was to be done but not until he had paid the GHC500 doctor motivation fee.

Pastor Agyemang said he intends suing the hospital for medical negligence, since, according to him, the hospital allowed several other women in labour into the theatre while his wife was kept sitting in a wheelchair for over three hours due to his inability to immediately pay the GHS500 'Doctor Motivation Fee'.

God will punish this doctor and all the midwives involved. 500 cedis is used by women to do their hair and you kill two people because of this chicken change. What is the meaning of this ***barred word*** Doctors Motivation fee? The pastor should go ahead to sue them
Name: kwame
I support and agree with the husband to go ahead and sue the hospital and the so called Dr.
What a wicked country we have found ourselves, why are we becoming so devilish in this our mother Ghana. In fact I felt so sad to hear that a pregnant woman and her unborn baby died because of 500 Ghana cides. While people are using our hard earned tax payers money to do unnecessary thing. I support the Pastor to take a legal action against the hospital for them killing his beautiful wife. What is wrong, even if they have to rescue the woman life after which they demand the money from the man before they go home. God will punish them all for looking at this innocent woman to lost her life. Woman May your soul and the unborn baby rest in perfect peace. Husband may God almighty comfort your soul, because this is so painful to bear in your heart Pastor.!!!!

See how SICK the system is. Imagine those 275 buses acquired by Blay for NPP, had the money in healthcare account. It could have saved such a valuable life. Every four years NPP or NDC politicians wear political suit & Abaga clothing & beg developed nations for money & waste it.
GHANA PAAA NIE !!!!!!!; 'Doctors Motivation Fees'; What an evil country Ghana has become ; the truth is that even Doctors are acting same as politicians today ; they are all chasing money ; go to Korle -Bu ;Tema or Ridge hospital if you do nt pay you shall not get a bed ; if you do not pay your dead relative may not be treated at the mortuary ; even Atta -Amissah was thrown at the back of a pick up to 37 hospital ; WHY HAVE OUR SOCIETY BECOME SO DIABOLICAL including doctors and nurses are just wicked and treat human beings like gabbage forggeting that they were trained with publiv funds and why has the government neglected the health service ; look at the manner in which Atta -Amissah ; PV Obeng ; Alhaji Bature and Atta Mills all died ; NOBODY CARES IN GHANA ; in Europe snd the US health is NO 1 but in Ghana luxury cars and using procurement policy to still from Ghanaians is the number priority ;MAY SHE REST IN PEACE WITH HER UNBORN CHILD !!!!!!

Teachers motivation how much
Name: @S. R. Angaamwine
I don't understand your name Angaamwine but believe it gives praise to God so stop being fulish and go to school. A woman can go into labour before or after the due date. The due date is just a guide. Labour could even be 2-3 weeks after the due date. If 2 weeks after the due date the women is not experiencing labour, she MAY go for the labour to be induced. Next time don't accuse the old lady of witchcraft when her child is dead.
