Anti-gay Bill: It is ridiculous to imprison someone for being who they are, goes against equality

Published:

Pappy Kojo has stated that he opposes the anti-LGBT+ bill that is presently pending presidential approval.

Speaking on a podcast monitored by News & Vibes, he denounced it as a breach of human rights the part of the measure that might result in incarceration due to one’s sexual orientation.

Kojo highlighted how ridiculous it is to imprison someone for being who they are, saying that doing so is unfair and goes against the ideas of equality.

During his speech, Kojo singled out Sam George as a prominent supporter of the bill and alluded to the possibility that personal prejudices were at play.

He made the case that people in positions of authority frequently abuse their influence to advance agendas that benefit them.

Kojo also talked about the bill’s wider implications, stating that youngsters shouldn’t be exposed to topics of intimacy, regardless of sexual orientation.

His remarks add to the current discussion about how the measure would affect Ghanaian human rights.

The provisions of the Anti-Gay bill passed by parliament could result in a six-month to three-year prison sentence for anyone engaging in LGBTQ sexual activity.

A three-to five-year prison penalty is also stipulated in the law for the conduct of “wilful promotion, sponsorship, or support of LGBTQ+ activities.”

The bill awaits the president’s assent.
