UK Government Assures To Help Ghana Legalize H*m*s£xuality

On November 26, 2017, the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo disclosed to Aljazeera that h*m0sexuality legalization is bound to happen in Ghana some years to come.

This statement was followed by another offer from the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, which she stated clearly that her country Britain will now be helping government re-write Ghana’s anti-g*y laws by making it legal and accommodating of g*ys and l£sbians.

British premier, Theresa May, says Britain is to blame for making h*m*sexuality illegal in Ghana having colonized Ghana for over 140 years, the British Prime Minister at the Commonwealth heads of states conference said.

Even though she acknowledged the efforts being made by member countries to improve conditions of h*m*sexuals, she noted: “Yet there remains much to do…Nobody should face discrimination and persecution because of who they are or who they love. The UK stands ready to support any Commonwealth nation wanting to reform outdated legislation that makes such discrimination possible”.

So far, most homophobic laws used by former colonies of Britain have seen g*ys and l£sbian subjected to brutal treatment, death by hanging, excommunication from the church and even medical testing in extreme cases.

Her call comes after the Danish Ambassador to Ghana Tove Degnbol made a similar call on Ghanaians to respect the rights of g*ys and l£sbians.

“I think it is important that gay [and lesbian] rights are discussed. To us, gay rights are human rights. Everybody should have the same rights. We have been through this discussion in our country, initially, there was a lot of resistance from religion. I fully recognize the debate which is going on here in Ghana. But I think it is very important to understand that all people have rights,” despite their s*xuality and nationality”.

And it is the requirement of the democratic dispensation that all citizens are accorded equal protection of the law, no matter their s*xual orientation.

So far, there is no definitive law in Ghana which says h*m*s*xuality is a criminal act. When the President was asked about the possibility of h*mos£xuality legalization in the country and if it’s something his administration will want to pursue, he responded: ”IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS BOUND TO HAPPEN”.

Nana Addo in that interview on h*m*s£xuality argued that there could only be a legalization when society accepts the practice and lobbies are heightened.

“I DON’T FEEL, I DON’T SEE THAT IN GHANA THAT THERE IS THAT STRONG CURRENT OF OPINION THAT IS SAYING THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO DEAL WITH. IT IS NOT SO FAR A MATTER ON THE AGENDA”, HE EXPLAINED.

From issues of mob action to rejection, these gays, and lesbians who spoke to the human rights organization claim it is suicidal to live in Ghana as a g*y man or woman.

Nana Addo making reference to other countries cited an example saying, the activities of individuals and groups and certain awareness grew stronger that changed the law on h*m0s£xuality in England at the time.

He concluded that these are some of the processes that can lure such changes in Ghana but said these are not matters on the national agenda.

It remains unsure what the British prime minister said about helping Ghana reverse its anti-gay laws but all indications spell out the suspicion that the UK Government is now eager in championing the rights of g*ys and l£sbians in Ghana.
