Kwakye Ofosu demands apology from Akufo-Addo over homosexual answer.

Kwakye-Ofosu

A Deputy Communications during former President John Mahama-led administration, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, says President Nana Addo Akufo-Addo must apologize to the people of Ghana for his failure to defend them during an interview on legalizing homosexuality.

Mr Kwakye Ofosu said there are overwhelming Ghanaians who are against homosexuality so for the President, who promised to hold the dignity of this country, to refuse to be emphatic on the position of the country on the matter indicates he has betrayed the nation.

President Akufo-Addo was on Al Jazeera’s Talk to Al Jazeera on Sunday to talk about a wide range of issues concerning the African continent and Ghana. Among the issues were happenings in Togo, Zimbabwe and Kenya. He was also quizzed on Donald J. Trump.

The interview, which was conducted by Al Jazeera presenter, Jane Dutton, had a question on why homosexuality is illegal in Ghana.

In an answer to the question, President Akufo-Addo said “this is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: ‘Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana.

I grew up in England; I went to school as a young boy in England and I grew up at a time in England when homosexuality was banned there, it was illegal and I lived in the period when British politicians thought it was anathema to think about changing the law and suddenly the activities of individuals, of groups, a certain awareness, a certain development grew and grew and grew stronger and it forced a change in law.

 

I believe those are the same processes that will bring about changes in our situation.

At the moment, I don’t feel and I don’t see that in Ghana, there is that strong current of opinion that will say: ‘This is something that we need even deal with’. It’s not, so far, a matter which is on the agenda.”

But reacting to the President’s comments on TV3’s New Day hosted by Bright Nana Amfoh on Monday, Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said: “Leaders are expected to represent the people, especially when you travel outside but he did not speak well in that instance”. “He did not cover himself.

He did not defend the position of Ghanaians and what we need is an apology and not defend his position,” the National Democratic Congress (NDC) member explained.

He said “overwhelming [number of] Ghanaians have stated their position against it therefore the president is bound by the people of Ghana to defend them but he did not defend the position on the matter”.

U-turn

The former Deputy Communications Minister said “we are not barbaric like persons who go about torturing those who are involved in it but we are against it and that is why there is widespread anger against the president over the position”.

Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said the President’s position is a mark of a U-turn because some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have openly spoken and kicked against it.

 

“It marks a sudden U-turn because some people in Parliament held press conference to kick against it. The Speaker of Parliament also spoke against it so why is the President afraid to maintain it?”

The Member of Parliament for Effutu Constituency in the Central Region, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, said the culture of Ghana forbids homosexuality but no one can victimize those who are involved.

He said “our culture does not support same-sex marriage but if someone is involved, can you report him to the police, or can you force him or antagonize him?”

The NPP MP said: “I don’t think that [the President] has introduced any controversy because we do not subscribe to same-sex relationships but if somebody has that orientation, he is a man and wants to have relationship with fellow man…what can you do to the person?”

He added that “if it gets to a stage where Ghanaians would want to discuss it whether or not the laws must be changed, that is also another matter”.

“However, if the same Ghanaians decide to think that there is nothing wrong in having open relationship, it is up to us”.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin noted that “even the Catholic Church in Europe could not sustain the same sex opposition pressure when the state imposed on them”.

“Do you deny the fact that we have a lot of same-sex relationship in Ghana?” the MP asked.

SAD: Man, 22, gets death sentence for killing 2 Americans in Akwamufie.

Yaw-Anokye-Frimpong-620x330

A High Court in Accra has sentenced a 22-year-old man, Yaw Anokye, to death by hanging for the gruesome murder of two African-American women at Akwamufie in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region, in May 2015.

Yaw Anokye was found guilty by a seven-member jury after he had confessed to killing the two women in their 70s.

Delivering her judgment, the Judge, Justice Merley Afua Wood, asked God to have mercy on the soul of the accused as he was about to face death.

The two deceased persons, Mane Lena, 75, and 69-year-old Diop Nzanga, were kidnapped, murdered and buried in a shallow grave in 2015.

Police in Akosombo found the bodies of the two after they were reported to have gone missing.

Their bodies were exhumed after Acting President of the Akwamu Traditional Council dispatched over 70 people to complement a police search for the two when it became apparent they had gone missing.

About the two women

The two, who dealt in batik and tie-dye, had lived in a small settlement near Akwamufie for more than 18 years.

At the time, no reasons were assigned for the murder of the two expatriates, but some linked it to some community disagreement rooted in chieftaincy matters.

The Omanhene of the Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III, expressed shock at the murder of the two American women.

He said Akwamus had over the years lived with many strangers and settlers, including foreigners, on their land, without any problem.

Confession

According to the Daily Graphic, during the committal proceedings at the Accra Central District Court, Frimpong confessed to single-handedly clubbing the two women to death.

The five other accused persons were later discharged.

Frimpong repeated his confession at the Accra High Court during the trial, but stated that it was never his intention to kill them but that his intention was to steal from them.

According to him, he killed for fear of being exposed when they found him stealing in Madam Diop’s room.

Per his testimony, Frimpong went to the apartment to steal, but in the course of the act, Madam Diop returned home and caught him in the act.

Consequently, he struggled with her, overpowered her and tied her hands and also covered her mouth with a piece of cloth, after which he went home.

But out of fear of being exposed by his victim, he returned to the house with a club with the intention of killing her and met Madam Jaana in the apartment.

Frimpong told the court that he hit the two women repeatedly with the club and after killing them, and conveyed their bodies in a wheelbarrow to a nearby farm, dug a shallow grave and buried their bodies.

After the act, he stole GH¢156 from Madam Diop’s room, went to town and drunk alcohol in order to forget about what had happened.

Haunted

After the jury’s verdict last Wednesday, Frimpong was given an opportunity to make a statement before the court delivered its sentence.

He informed the court that he had committed other crimes which the police were currently investigating and said those crimes were haunting him.

“These crimes are haunting me because I know I committed them,’’ he said.

He prayed the court to have mercy on him because he had not intentionally killed the two women.

On death penalty in Ghana

The last time the Ghana recorded an execution of a convict, was in 1993, when then-president John Rawlings ordered the execution of 12 convicts via a firing squad.

According to Amnesty International Ghana, as at September 2016, there were 137 prisoners on death row, who have not been executed. As a result, many have pushed for Ghana to do away with the death penalty from Ghana’s legal system since it is not enforced.

Those opposed against the death penalty have argued that it is not the right punishment for a convicted murderer but retributive.

Death penalty has been in the country’s statute books since the application of the English common law in 1874, but in practice, no execution has been recorded since July 1993.

According to the proponents, much as the sentence may be seen in a wider sense as fairness, it doesn’t deter people from committing such crimes.
