Ghana Orders Arrest Of All Gays

The Western Region Minister in Ghana began a witchhunt today, urging landlords and tenants to snitch on their gay neighbors in order to arrest them.  Who knows what is going to happen to these poor people.

'Mr. Paul Aidoo minced no words at all in his dislike for the practice. He stated that 'all efforts are being made to get rid of these people in the society.'

"He said once they are arrested they will be hauled before court to test the strength of the law which frowns upon homosexuality in the country.

"But a Lawyer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has challenged the legitimacy of the minister's action.

"Ernest Kofi Abotsie told Joy News’ Dzifah Bampoh that no person can be arrested for breach of morality, explaining that the law on 'unnatural canal knowledge' in the criminal code is still ambiguous and cannot necessarily be said to be the same as homosexuality."

This is horrifying, and I will assert that our administration should and must condemn this action.
