For her, her husband was sick, and he died from the sicknesses that he started battling in August 2023. 

"As far as I'm concerned, my husband was sick, and I know the sickness and I won't lie," she said. 

Apostle Kumah also called on law enforcement agencies to invite individuals, particularly Captain Smart of Onua TV, who claimed that he had evidence that Dr John Kumah was poisoned to obtain the said evidence.  

She said she has all the medical reports on her husband's condition, both at home and abroad, that point to the fact that her husband was not poisoned as speculated.
