Ghana Anti-gay bill dangerous, proponents seek to promote hate


A professor of Journalism and Mass Communication, Kwame Karikari, has said the current anti-gay bill which is being promoted by Ningo Prampram lawmaker, Sam Nartey George and some of his colleague legislators, is dangerous because it seeks to promote hate for homosexuals in the country. In the view of Prof Karikari, gays and lesbians are human beings and deserve to be respected and protected like any other person. To that end, he said, any law that seeks to create problems for this group should be rejected. He said this while speaking on the First Take with Dzifa Bampoh on 3FM on Monday, October 4. The former Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) said he and a few of his colleagues who are fighting for the rights of homosexuals to be respected in Ghana will hold a public forum to debate this subject. “Hopefully, the media may also want to pick up the debate, debate them so that the public will instantly get to know the views that we hold and the views that the proponents of what we considered to be a dangerous bill, also hold.
