Amend Ghana’s laws to ban homosexuality – Oquaye

The Speaker of Parliament Professor Mike Oquaye has called for the amendment of Ghana’s laws to completely ban homosexuality and make it illegal.

According to the Speaker, who doubles as a pastor, the despicable act is against the country’s culture and cannot be accepted.

Speaking during a courtesy call by the Royal House Chapel led by its founder Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, Prof. Oquaye said existing legislations are not clear of the illegality of the practice.

“It is unfortunate that people have become so liberal that they will want to liberalise Christianity…even priests are approving of homosexuality and allowing a man and a man [to] marry, a woman and a woman [to] marry and these are manifest abominations.

“I trust that with your kind of insistence, the Parliament of Ghana…will find its way clear in strengthening the laws to ban homosexuality as they exist. As for this, may God forbid that it becomes a Ghanaian culture,” Prof. Oquaye said.

Ghana’s laws are silent on homosexuality but persons found to be engaging in such acts are mostly attacked and brutally assaulted.

Most African countries also frown on the act and in some countries people suspected to be homosexuals are jailed or killed.
