The 2016 Presidential candidate of the Ghana Freedom Party, Akua Donkor, says the whole debate on homosexuality will end once she is elected as president of Ghana. Both the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and governing NPP have been caught in the debate on why homosexuality must be considered in Ghana.
But Akua Donkor says her government has a new approach that will end the entire debate once and for all. "My government will end this gay thing, Our men will not sleep with men under my administration. NDC and NPP have failed us. They will run under my administration," she revealed in an interview with HITZ FM in Ghana while attending a funeral.
Recently, former CEO of the Volta River Authority (VRA) under the Kufuor administration, Charles Wireko Brobbey also known as 'Tarzan' has argued that homosexuals need to be respected. On his Facebook post, the politician, and policy analyst argues that Ghanaians must 'support LGBT rights'. Tarzan believes that LGBT rights in Ghana must be upheld especially when these men and women are Ghanaians and also human beings.
Some Ghanaians also engaged the politician on his views, questioning the morality of his argument.
Meanwhile, the senior law lecturer at the Ghana School of Law is sad about what he terms the chance government is giving to the West to demand Ghana legalizes homosexuality. Lawyer Moses Foh Amoaning is particularly mad about the recent comments made by a UN official against the stance of the speaker of parliament when it comes to gay rights. “I am sick and tired of this arrogant bigotry being thrown around by Europeans and because we ourselves are not thinking through these things, we allow them to insult us… poke down upon us and to say anything they like… even Ghanaians don’t seem to appreciate what is happening.” He revealed in an interview with Starr FM.
