Sam P. Yalley, a so-called public interest lawyer and a former deputy minister in the administration of former military dictator Jerry John Rawlings. He is proposing that persona arrested for acts of homosexuality be charged with genocide. His reasoning is that homosexuality exterminates the concept of procreation.
He made his comments in response to the Attorney General, Martin Amidu, who said that homosexual acts between two consenting adults were not illegal with regard to Ghana’s laws if they were confined to the privacy of the partner’s bedroom.
For me there is another session of the criminal code which people are not taking a look at, it is about genocide.
Genocide results in the extermination of the human race and if you expand the meaning of homosexuality to mean that a man cannot have a child with another man then it means that that practice would lead to the extermination of mankind and therefore for me if i am to charge anybody apart from having unnatural carnal knowledge, i would also charge him with genocide and see how he can get out of that situation.
If you are a man and you are having canal knowledge with a man how are you going to have a child?
I agree totally with the clergy in condemning it.
