Private legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw is insisting that the mother of missing musician, Castro is suffering despite her denial.

In an earlier media engagement, Maurice Ampaw claimed that Castro’s mother had been abandoned and therefore was still reeling under a lot of pain. According to the lawyer, he had learnt this first hand from his interaction with the family of Castro.

However, his claims were rejected the family of the musician. The mother of Castro in a conversation on Onua FM dismissed the claim of suffering posited Mr. Ampaw and further denied ever meeting the controversial lawyer. This rebuttal was backed Castro’s brother who also insisted the legal practitioner had misrepresented them.

Now, when subjected to strict proof MzGee on 3FM’s ShowBiz 927, Mr. Ampaw maintained he had interacted with the woman and that what he said about the family was factual. Lawyer Ampaw then accused the media of twisting his comments.

“There’s a way which the media does propaganda in reporting. I didn’t say Castro’s mother is poor. I didn’t use the word poor. All I have to say is that Castro’s mother is not happy, Castro’s mother is suffering but hardly will she come and say that she is suffering,”

On the family’s denial of knowing him, Mr. Ampaw quizzed how it could have been possible for him to know the residence of Castro’s mother if indeed he had not met her.

“Whether she is suffering or not, if she says she doesn’t know me, how did I get to know where she stays? I said I know Castro’s mother, I’ve been to the place so if she’s on air denying that she doesn’t know me, I don’t have a problem with that”.
