The Kwabenya Traditional Council of Ga East in the Greater-Accra Region has threatened to burn down a house alleged to have hosted a meeting of the Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) group last Wednesday inside Ashongman in the Kwabenya District.
The Public Relations Officer of the traditional council, who is also the Kwabenya Musuku Manhene, Nii Mensah Dza Nyomo I told journalists at a press conference that a house in the area has been hosting LGBTQI meetings which the council will not accept.
The chiefs said an investigation has been launched into the matter to find out the exact house and its owner, warning the house could be set ablaze if it is confirmed that LGBTQI persons met there.
“We won’t sit down for Kwabenya to gain a bad name that the LGBTQI meeting grounds or office is located in Kwabenya Ashongman. No way”, the PRO warned.
This comes after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had ordered the shutdown of the recently opened LGBTQI office in Tesano, which orders was carried out by the police and national security earlier today.
The president’s orders followed a campaign led by the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, headed by popular Ghanaian lawyer and sport analyst, Moses Foh-Amoaning.
The coalition is made up of the Christian Council and the Catholic Bishops Conference, the Muslim community as well as the traditional rulers, making it a tripartite group fighting against the LGBTQI agenda in Ghana.
Moses Foh-Amoaning said that the formation of LGBTQI started in New York City and extended to California and has since spread throughout the world, and now want to invade Africa.
He has therefore called on African leaders to rise and take a stand against it, saying that if the west has legislated a against polygamy, which is a common cultural practice in Africa, they cannot impose the imperialist LGBTQI cultural on Africa in the name of human rights.
