Ghana official calls for effort to 'round up' suspected gays

E-mail Print PDF

Paul Evans AidooThe Western Regional Minister, Paul Evans Aidoo, has ordered the immediate arrest of all homosexuals in the region. He tasked the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and all security agencies to smoke out persons suspected to be engaging in homosexuality.

He also enlisted the services of landlords and tenants to provide reliable information which will lead to the arrest of homosexuals. His directive follows months of campaign against the practice of homosexuality in the country.

The Christian Council of Ghana last Monday also condemned the growing incidence of homosexuality in the country after other religious bodies had taken to the streets in protest against the practice, urging Ghanaians not to vote for any politician who believes in the rights of homosexuals.

The Western Region has been a beehive of activities linked with homosexuality. A recent media report claimed the Western and Central regions together have a total of about 8,000 registered homosexuals and lesbians.

That report sparked a series of religious demonstrations, with the Muslim and Christian communities in the region hitting the streets to protest what they claim is an ungodly and demonic act.

In an interview with Joy FM, Mr. Aidoo condemned the practice but also contested the figure being bandied about in the media. Whilst conceding that the practice actually goes on in the region and in people’s closets, he said the 8,000 figure cannot be correct.

TVNL Comment:  Hitler's troops had "God With Us" etched onto their uniform belts as he sent gays to concentration camps.  These are Christian and Muslim groups acting in the name of their God.  Let's see if the world responds this time.
