Several people have been pouring sweet words on the Member Of Parliament for Ningo Prampram Constituency, Hon. Sam Djata George. This followed a banter between the Ghanaian MP and a former British Member Of Parliament Seb Dance on Twitter.
The two parliamentarians disagreed on a current bill the Ghanaian parliament is considering that frowns on the rights of LGBTQI+ people. The bill, if passed, will criminalize sexual intercourse between two males or two females, sexual intercourse between a man and an animal or a woman and an animal, sexual intercourse in the anus, etc.
This bill has attracted a lot of concerns from the general public, with many Ghanaians expressing their joy over the bill, positing that that sexual preference is against the culture of our land. But the former British MP expressed his dislike for the bill that the Ghanaian parliamentary is considering. According to him, the bill is born out of a colonial mindset and is against the human rights of those with such sexual preferences.
Hon. Sam George however vehemently defended the bill, asking the former British MP and his people to also decriminalize polygamy if they seek to protect the rights of people. Ghanaians who followed the conversation between the two gentlemen are happily expressing their appreciation to Sam George for dealing with Seb Dance I'm that manner.
The following are some of the reactions from Ghanaians on social media.
