Minister-designate for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Sarah Adwoa Sarfo has expressed disapproval over the legalisation of homosexuality in the country.
According to her, not only does the Ghanaian culture frown upon it, the laws governing the State make it criminal.
“The issue of LGBTQI is an issue that when mentioned creates some controversy but what I want to say is that our laws are clear on such practices. It makes it criminal.
“On the issue of its criminality, it is non-negotiable on the issue of cultural acceptance and norms too. These practices are also frowned upon,” she stated emphatically.
The Gender minister-designate made this known when she took her turn before the Parliament Appointments Committee during Wednesday’s Vetting.
Last week, the LGBTQI group in Ghana organised a fundraiser which was attended by several diplomats including the Australian High Commissioner who pledged to support the group.
This action triggered some Ghanaians calling on security personnel to shut down the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Intersex Rights (LGBTQI) movement in Ghana.
