Ghana is a country governed by laws and anyone who is found guilty of any wrongdoing will be made to face the spelled out punishments accordingly. Some persons are currently facing jail terms for being found guilty of unnatural carnal knowledge, a misdemeanor that is punishable under the criminal procedure code of Ghana.
Apart from this, it appears the entire nation is against the practices of LGBTQ and its related activities to the extent that some members of parliament have laid before the house, a bill to criminalize the activities in Ghana. The clergy, chiefs, and many Ghanaians have thrown their weight behind the members of parliament to go ahead and pass the bill into law to enable anyone who engages in LGBTQ plus punished.
As the country is contemplating on how to banish the activities from the country, two gay men have been caught making out in a car. Their action captured with a phone lens as they were busy making out has since gone viral and most Ghanaians are unhappy about their act. They believe that the two men were behaving abnormally because it is never right for them to have engaged in the act at that location.
Even though they have received some lashes already when they were caught, and the public has lambasted them, a call is being made for the arrest as soon as possible. The destination for the kind of crime they have committed is in the prison. There is video evidence available and it is enough to find them guilty under the criminal procedure code.
Apart from the calls to the police from to public to send them straight to prison for their crimes, they would have been made to go through tradition and to some extent, banished as a punishment for their crimes. For now, the signals are clear on the walls that Ghana is not ready to accept LGBTQ and its related activities. For now, the police would have to intervene and ensure the culprits face the laws of the country.
