Patrick Sawyer’s Wife Says Hubby Abandons Her & 3 Kids In America For Girlfriend In Liberia
August 21, 2014 – Patrick Sawyer’s Wife Says Husband Abandons Her & 3 Kids In America For Girlfriend In Liberia
Here is a letter the wife of late Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian who brought Ebola virus into Nigeria wrote about her hubby.
Her name is Decontee Sawyer.
I cannot apologize for Patrick’s actions because I didn’t cause them. He did a lot of things I didn’t like; going to Nigeria was one of them. His act was one of a desperate man. Many Nigerians and Liberians are affected because of that act of desperation.
I want to reach out to them and express how deeply saddened and sorry I am for their loss and their pain. I do apologize if my words have cost anyone who is grieving more pain. I fall on my knees and ask God for his healing power for all of those who are still infected with Ebola. I pray for all of the families who loved ones were taken away by this merciless killer Ebola, especially those affected by Patrick’s actions.
I pray for the people of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria. I pray for the people of Africa. We are all affected by Ebola. It will take all of us working together to eradicate Ebola. Ebola must go, and we must kick it out together. The God in me wouldn’t allow me to go and hide. He strengthens me to stay and fight. I’m fighting to help bring aid to my brothers and sisters in Africa. I am committed to this fight. But I cannot do it by myself. I need all of your help.
The good people of the world, not just Africa, need to come together, and fight together. We can either do it together and win, or we can tear each other down and loose. This is not just my fight, or Africa’s fight. This is the world’s fight.
Thank you, and God bless you all.
Patrick and I have been separated (not yet divorced) for the past one year and seven months. He left me when I was seven months pregnant with our third child. We already had a 3-year-old, and a 4-year-old together, with a third on the way.
He left us all and started a new family in Liberia. I was left by myself to now raise three children alone, one of which (my 3-year-old at the time) was diagnosed with autism. That in itself was a challenge (and still is). Patrick left us, and he never turned back. We only communicated occasionally regarding our children.
I was under so much emotional stress during my labor that I almost lost my last child, Bella. Thank God she is now a healthy 18months old girl. Patrick and I now have a 6yr old, a 5yr old, and an 18months old together (all girls). He and his mistress have a 2-year-old daughter together in Liberia. They lived together in the house that he and I built together.
Can you believe the idiot named the child he had with his mistress after me?
The man was deeply confused and troubled. So, my dear, my letter I wrote was not to defend my husband (the man that abandoned me with two small children while I was pregnant for the third). My letter was to shine light on the beyond broken healthcare system and bad governance of Liberia under President Sirleaf and previous presidents. Ebola didn’t start with Patrick in Liberia, as we both know.
Ebola was in Liberia from a traveler from Guinea since February of this year. The government knew about it and did nothing. Many Liberians, including myself, called out to the government then to close the borders. They didn’t do so until one of their own, Patrick, died in July.
