The career of Kumasi Sports Academy player Holali Ativor is set to be put on hold following a shock revelation about her gender was revealed.
Her mother, Victoria Ativor told Happy FM, Thursday, that player has male and female sex organs.
“Yes it is true they have sent my daughter home because she has two organs. When I gave birth to her she had the vagina but with time the penis started growing,” She said.
“She is 20 years old and all her life she sees herself a woman. I have taken her to a lot of places for help but to no avail. She insists she is a woman and wants the penis taken off.”
“I will plead with Ghanaians to come to my aid so she can have surgery. For now, she is not yet home. She is on her way from camp to the house.”
Ativor’s gender came under scrutiny after reports emerged that she has been dropped from Black Queens team for being hermaphrodite.
The news sent shock waves with many criticising the source of the news, Sikka Sports.
However, Ghanasoccernet.com decided to do further checks and now it has been confirmed that Ativor has two organs and thus is ineligible to play for Black Queens.
It’s possible Ativor won’t also feature in the Women’s Premier League again for Kumasi Sports Academy.
Ativor was part of the Black Queens team that camped in Cape coast ahead of the Wafu tournament in 2019 but was dropped.
