Traditional priest, Nana Kwaku Bonsam has indicated that Ghana’s culture frowns upon Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer Individuals (LGBTQI) groups.
Speaking on Angel FM, he wondered why the President has demolished buildings to make way for a National Cathedral to honour God yet he entertains homosexuals and lesbians in the country.
“We stand our grounds not to approve the activities of the LGBT community today nor tomorrow. We are not Europeans to be adopting such behaviours; we were raised with dishes like ‘banku’, ‘fufuo’ and ‘akple’, why should we adopt something that doesn’t conform with our tradition?” he was quoted by angelonline.
He continued: “You speak of building a national cathedral and have begun works on it. What then is the point building the cathedral if you are going to support the activities of the LGBT community? Why didn’t you leave those buildings on the land undemolished?”
“If you have received any monies, return them. If you have taken any loans for the purpose of campaigning for the community, return the money, because we are not going to sit down for the activities of the community to be fruitful in this country,” he urged.
