Ghanaian singer, Sister Derby has descended heavily on the member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Sam George for fighting against the legalization of same-s*x marriage in Ghana.
According to the LGBTQI+ advocate, Sam George is a ‘backward thinker’ for rising against LGBTQI+ in the country.
Not long ago, Sam George and other members of Parliament drafted a bill that they are seeking to introduce in the house as a private bill to be approved to make activities of LGBTQI+ illegal in the country.
Part of the drafted bill popped online and garnered a lot of reactions on social media with a section thinking it may violate human rights in Ghana.
“A person who, by use of media, technological platform, technological account or any other means, produces, procures, markets, broadcasts, disseminates, publishes or distributes a material for purposes of promoting an activity prohibited under the Bill, or a person uses an electronic device, the Internet service, a film, or any other device capable of electronic storage or transmission to produce, procure, market, broadcast, disseminate, publishes or distribute a material for purposes of promoting an activity prohibited under the Bill commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a term of imprisonment of not less than five years and not more than ten years.”
Sam George in a Twitter post expressed his excitement about the positive feedback and support the bill has received.
“I have been overwhelmed by the massive support even here on a very ‘liberal’ platform like Twitter for our Bill on the LGBTQI+ menace. Homos3xuality is NOT a human right. It is a sexual preference. Preferences are not absolute or unregulated. We SHALL pass this Bill through,” he tweeted.
However, Sister Derby is not happy with Sam George’s stance on the issue. He called him “shameful” for trying to pass a bill to cause harm to queer people.
She branded the member of Parliament as a “backward thinker” who is full of perversion.
“His brain is in Europe in 1920 – homophobia sorh. Our African ancestors will be so ashamed of him. They were wiser and accepted queer folk unlike homophobes from Europe who forced their bigotry and hate on us then,” Sister Derby tweeted.
“You are rather full of perversion. So obsessed with people’s sexual orientation. Shame on you, you backward thinker!!!”
