The Ghana parliament speaker has shaded the US Vice President, Kamala Harris for canvassing for gay right in the country.
Kamala spoke out in support of LGBTQ+ people in Africa, following the introduction of a devastating new law in Uganda that bans queer identities entirely. Standing alongside Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo, Harris said she felt “very strongly” about supporting the development of LGBTQ+ rights in Africa.
“I will also say that this is an issue that we consider and I consider to be a human rights issue and that will not change,” she said.
However, the speaker slammed Kamara Harris, describing her comments as undemocratic.
According to him, it should not be tolerated.
He said, "I was so happy when I read that Pope Francis directed that no Reverend father should celebrate over gay or lesbian marriage. Yes, Rome has spoken and the matter is ended, so committee members that will refer to the bill, we want the report.
"Don't be intimidated by any person. I made this statement when I was a member of the European ACP Parliament in Brussels. Now we have two of our members in, who happen to be leading our committee constitutional legal colloquial affairs, who are handling the bill and since we referred it to them; till date, we haven't heard anything.”
