The Gavle district court also said that the 22 year-old who played for Gefle If Club, will be expelled from the Scandinavian country after serving his sentence.
It was also made known that Bonsu was dismissed from the team with immediate effect and will also have to pay a sum of 240,000 kronor as compensation to his wife who is a Swedish national.
Kwame Bonsu who had lived in the country since 2013, met his wife in 2014 when he was playing in the southern swedish city of Mjolby. They married the following year. Few months after the wedding he signed a transfer to the town of Gavle, located about 300 kilometres away from Mjolby.
It was reported that his wife made claims that the rape and beatings took place in the couples apartment when he had refused to let out.
However, Bonsu denied all the charges against him but btestimony from his wife's relatives led the court to believe the victim's side of the story.
