Rachel Appoh, a deputy minister of Gender and Children Protection has added her voice to calls for the hierarchy of the Ghana Armed Forces to crack the whip on the female soldier who allegedly married her lesbian partner in military uniform. Viral pictures and videos captured the officer whose identity has been revealed as Staff Sergeant Vidash Owusu, allegedly tying the knot with her lesbian partner. In a post on her social media handles, Rachel Appoh condemned the conduct of the officer and asked the GAF to deal with her. “It is most unfortunate that this nauseating act would be emanating from Ghana’s Military that has gained such international repute and pedigree for its discipline in all facets of its activities”. “We urge the Military High Command to take decisive action to purge itself of the collective disgrace this single act of indiscretion has brought to the GAF”.
