Africa is not deterred by the veiled threats of withdrawal of investments and international aid, Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, has said. He noted that those threats and other stringent economic measures had not affected the continent’s effort at protecting its culture, values, and societal norms and to safeguard the future of its youth. A statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate of Parliament, copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the Speaker made the remarks at a meeting with Members of the British House of Lords and the House of Commons at Westminster in London. It said of concern to the British Members of Parliament was the law passed in Uganda recently on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex (LGBTQI) phenomenon, and the bill on Promotion of Human Sexual Rights and Family Values currently before Ghana’s Parliament.
