Sam George stormed the Asempa FM studios yesterday afternoon for an interview. For several days, Sam George has been in the news because of his stance on the prohibition of homosexuality in the country. Sam George and a group of other MPs have written a bill that will be presented to Parliament for consideration.
According to Sam George, the bill will even protect homosexuals from physical violence, so he doesn't see why people are getting so worked up about it.
Sam George was asked by Osei Bonsu, the host of ‘Ekosii Sen,' what he plans to do if he is prevented from traveling abroad because of his choice to present a law criminalizing LGBTQ+ people. During the Hearts Kotoko game, Sam George visited with the Australian High Commissioner, who informed him that he would be denied a visa to travel abroad.
“On what grounds do they wish to put me on a no-fly list? It should be shown to me. He can't threaten him, I told him. I inquired as to whether he was familiar with Nzulenzu or Mole National Park. I can go to those places and relax. There are several wonderful areas in Ghana where I can unwind. You can't make me travel if you threaten me with it. He could come to Prampram for some fresh air as they pound Fufu or banku for him to witness how wonderful Ghana is.”- Sam George stated.
He went on to say that he is grateful for the support he is receiving from religious and traditional organizations. He stated that it is only fair that he stand for the correct route rather than remain silent and let Western culture to poison Ghanaian culture.
