- Politician, Charles Wereko Brobby has been criticized for asking Ghanaians to accept gay rights
- Anti-gay lawyer, Moses Foh-Amoaning says Charles Wereko Brobby needs help
- Despite calls by Britain for gay rights, the government insists the act will still remain illegal
Anti-gay lawyer, Moses Foh-Amoaning, has jabbed politician and former CEO of the Volta River Authority (VRA), Dr. Charles Wereko Brobby for calling on Ghanaians to support gay rights.
The lawyer in an interview with Joy FM argues that he is willing to help the former politician if only he is willing to get help as a "homosexual".
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported on how the politician argued on his Facebook page that homosexuals also have rights and are Ghanaians and human beings.Reacting to the argument by Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby, lawyer Moses Foh-Amoaning said the argument was just wrong.
“So Dr. Charles Wereko Brobby, I am an albino, my name is Moses Foh-Amoaning [and] I accept the problem that I have but God being so good and my father being a minister of the gospel, trained me to be able to cater for the weakness that I have, genetically. So if you are a homosexual let us help you out of it rather than using vestiges of colonialism to support this degenerate moral behavior,” Foh-Amoaning revealed on Joy News.
It all happened when the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Prof. Philip Alston, says the speaker of parliament does not know what is happening in Ghana when it comes to homosexuality.
The speaker of parliament had earlier revealed that homosexuality is not in Ghana and that it is a strange activity that will not be accepted in the country but the UN official says Ghana's speaker of parliament has no idea of what is happening in Ghana.
According to the UN official, the number of gays and lesbians in Ghana is overwhelming and that enforcing gay rights could help safeguard the interests of the community.
“If you tell me that a man must sleep with a man so as to show his human rights for Ghana, I can assure you that our Parliament is a real micropause of the rule of Ghana. Ghanaians do not support gay rights and nobody is going to make any law that will support this kind of thing,” he revealed to the media after the UN held a fact-finding visit to Ghana about human rights and administrative justice.
The criticism closely follows the speech by the British prime minister, Theresa May, who has pledged UK's resolve to help Ghana and other African countries legalize homosexuality.
Theresa May, during the Commonwealth Heads of State conference in London, revealed that Britain introduced anti-gay laws in Ghana and therefore is prepared to reverse these laws.
