The National House of Chiefs is urging Ghanaians not to visit any harm on people who supposedly practice or in support of LGBTQ+.
According to a press release by the house, it admonished Ghanaians not to take the laws into their own hands by beating, lynching or discriminating against Lesbians, Gays and other homosexuals.
The chiefs added that although they will never entertain LGBTQI in the communities, they will continue to have respect for the human rights and opinions of such individuals.
“We are, however, appealing to Ghanaians not to take the law into their own hands by way of burning, lynching, molesting and visiting mayhem on suspected gay or lesbian couples, rather should report such individuals to the law enforcement agencies for necessary action”, the statement added.
The National House of Chiefs also made it point-blank that they are not and will never be in support of LGBTQ+ and related matters in Ghana.
“It is pertinent to note that, as traditional leaders and for that matter custodians of our lands, we will never support, accept or condone such practices”, the House of Chiefs said in a press release.
