- A group of gay associations are seeking to recruit members into their groups in the Western region
- A pastor at the Tarkwa SDA claims a letter was sent to the church to this effect by members of the group
It has emerged that some gay associations at Tarkwa in the Western region are beginning to scout for members for an upcoming gay association in the said region.
This was made known by an elder at the SDA Church of Tarkwa who claims that the church's resolve to refuse such recruitment has seen some members of the gay community threaten to lynch him.
According to Ephraim Paa Kwesi, the association of homosexuals requested that the church makes an announcement for interested persons to join their group.
Meanwhile, an assembly man for the Tarkwa Kwabedu Bogrekrom Electoral Area known as Paa Kwesi has revealed to Adom FM how these aggressive gay men stormed his residence with cutlasses with the threat of butchering him alive should he fail in ensuring that their call is heeded.
“I was returning home from church when my brother called and told me not to come home because the homosexuals have stormed the house with cutlasses to butcher me” he bemoaned.
Meanwhile the said letter is reported to have been handed over to the police for investigations to begin. Homosexuality currently remains against the culture of Ghana with persons who indulge in the act prone to being stigmatized or even brutalized by an angry mob.
Meanwhile, the Speaker of Parliament - Professor Mike Ocquaye Jnr - has revealed plans by government to criminalize the act amidst pressure from the international community against such move.
As we speak, various pressure is being mounted on government to ensure that the rights of the LGBT community is respected with the latest advocates being a group of Ghanaian men in Canada currently seeking signatures to this effect.
