The Kwabenya Traditional Council in the GA East Municipality of the Greater Accra Region has issued a threat to burn a house situated at the Ashongman, a community within the Kwabenya District where it is alleged to have been a meeting place for Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) last Wednesday.
This was made known by the Public Relations Officer of the Traditional Council who doubles as the Kwabenya Musuku Manhene, Nii Mensah Dza Nyomo 1 at a press conference. He described action as unacceptable as the community and area do not accept such meetings.
The chiefs said an investigation has been launched into the matter to find out the exact house and the owner of the premises, warning the house could be set ablaze.
“We won’t sit down for Kwabenya to gain a bad name that the LGBT meeting grounds or office is located in Kwabenya Ashongman. No way!” he warned.
Giving the background of the LGBTQ movement, Lawyer Foh-Amoaning, the Executive Secretary of the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values said that its formation started in New York City and extended to California, and has since spread throughout the world now coming to Ghana but is unacceptable.
