- Moses Foh-Amoaning has asked his colleague lawyer, Martin Kpebu, to be cautious with his pronouncements on gay rights
- Foh-Amoaning said Kpebu should desist from making comments on homosexual issues if he does not know what the laws in Ghana say about it
Senior law lecturer, Moses Foh-Amoaning, says any attempt by Ghana to legalize homosexuality will be a “fight against God”.
Foh-Amoaning said Mr Martin Kpebu should desist from making comments on homosexual issues if he does not know what the laws in Ghana say about it.
“I don’t know whether he is being influenced by some people to make comments like these. He should be careful,; he is a young lawyer, and if he doesn’t know what the law says, he should stop making pronouncements on it."
“This is not a curse I am reigning on him, but what he is doing is a fight against God, he is a small boy,” Foh-Amoaning said in an interview on Kumasi FM.
He added: “There is a lot of falsehood being peddled around about homosexual rights, especially same-sex marriage being a human right, therefore if he doesn't retract the comments, he might even die before the said 2039.”
The law lecturer’s comment comes on the back of Kpebu’s assertion that same-sex marriage may be legalised by 2039.
At a workshop organised by the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) last Thursday, May 23, 2019, Kpebu said although same-sex relationships are a major taboo in many African countries, Ghana cannot fight the international pressure that comes with such advocacy, adding that it was just a question of time.
Kpebu said the law inherited from the British colonial government was inconsistent with the fundamental human rights of the individual and violates a person’s right to dignity.
“What two adult people do in private, why is it another man’s business?” he queried.
“You think in 20 years we would not have legalised same-sex marriage? We can’t stand the force. It’s just a question of time,” Kpebu noted.
