Diplomats Supporting LGBT Should be Expelled, Ningo Prampram M.P Says

by The Ghana HIT

Expel diplomats who have declared support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender (LGBT) community in Ghana. These are the sentiments of Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Sam George, as he spoke during a television interview on Thursday the 25th of February. The tough-talking lawmaker called onto the government to strongly warn or expel foreign diplomats in support of the LGBT community in Ghana saying that it was time the foreign ministry stopped being too tolerant with high profile foreign officials supporting homosexuality in its territory.

“We will not allow anybody to bring homosexuality or love with animals into our country and tell us it is a right- It is not a right. It is a mental disorder, our law says it is illegal, you don’t have a right… I have gone out publicly to demand that the foreign ministry summons and issues either a strong warning or an expulsion notice to the Australian Ambassador, the Danish Ambassador, and the Rep of the EU in Ghana because the letters of credence they presented to HE President Akufo-Addo when they were nominated by their respective countries to come and serve in Ghana mandates them to respect the laws of Ghana,” stated the legislator.

This comes at a time when the LGBT Community in Ghana has expressed fear over their safety citing an incident that saw some National Security officials raid their office on Wednesday afternoon. The LGBT community has also sought the intervention of the human rights organizations following threats to burn down their office by some traditional leaders

Taking it to Facebook, the group pinned, “This morning, our office was raided by National Security. A few days ago, traditional leaders threatened to burn down our office but the police did not help. At this moment, we no longer have access to our safe space and our safety is being threatened… We call on all human rights organizations, and allies to speak out against this attack”.
