Commit suicide if you can’t change, Ahadzi tells homosexuals

Published

The fierce opposition to homosexuality in Ghana took another turn on Monday, as an Cultural Anthropologist and senior member of the Afrikania Mission, Osofo Kofitse Ahadzi, has told gays to change their sexual orientation or commit suicide.

Contributing to the on whether the act should be accepted in Ghana or not. Ahadzi said the country must not accept it because it is not natural and does not conform to the customs of the people.

Osofo Ahadzi’s was reacting to a publication in which the General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Opuni-Frimpong, claimed that he had been under pressure by some donor agencies to be an ambassador for the acceptance of homosexuality in Ghana.

He said: “Even animals don’t behave this way. Can you see a he-goat mounting a he-goat? No. So why should human beings be doing that? And then you think that it’s your human right? Maybe is your human left. We can’t tolerate this in this country. They must give us a break.

“Was it David Cameron who said if we don’t accept homosexuality they won’t give us aid? Now are we being pushed to accept homosexuality because somebody will give us aid? Why can’t we develop ourselves? What can we get from the almond tree to help us grow well? We have all the plans that we need to cure our problems and not this homosexuality… We must think again.

“In the time of our ancient ancestors there was nothing like homosexuality. If you want to marry three or four women that’s fine. It’s been created that a man must marry a woman not a woman marrying a woman.”

The Anthropologist further counselled gays to “go and hang themselves” if they are not ready to change their ways.

“If they can’t live normal lives, they should go and commit suicide and save our generation from getting out of tune with reality,” he said.

The Ghana Police Service has arrested two persons alleged to be luring Ghanaians to subscribe to the Ponzi scheme, MMM.

The arrests, made by the Tema Community One police over the weekend, was a result of the directive from the Bank of Ghana warning the public against patronizing the scheme that has been discredited in several countries, including Nigeria.

Though the police is yet to give any official update on the arrest, a victim of the scheme, who spoke Citi Business News, said he decided to alert the police largely due to the public information on the illegality of MMM’s operations in Ghana.

“The gentlemen who approached my friend and I were not convincing in their product offering so I became suspicious and asked my friend whom I was with to ignore them. It was also because I had heard of the business in the news cautioning the public to be weary of the scheme,” he explained.

Published

on

Ghanaians, particularly social media users, have reacted to comments by the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, over ‘women and rape.’

This is not the first time the minister has provoked the ire of the public.

In her recent outburst, the Minister, during her opening address as the Co-Chairperson at the 90th anniversary and Speech and prize giving day for Krobo Girls Presbyterian Senior School at the weekend, urged girls not to attract rape by wearing provocative clothing.

Madam Djaba intimated that girls’ wearing short dresses could attract a rapist.

She said, “In conclusion, I want to say to you, be bold, be confident, be respectful. If you wear a short dress, it’s fashionable but, know that it can attract somebody who would want to rape or defile you.

“You must be responsible for the choices you make.”

The Minister also had some words for teachers who sexually assaulted girls.

According to her, “It is an abuse of their rights and you are their role model, you must not be the one to abuse the rights of the young girls.”

But some Ghanaians did not take her correlation between rape and girls’ dressing lightly.

Many of them have taken to social media to express their displeasure, with a number of them questioning her logic and others accusing her of victim blaming and shaming.
