WESTERN DIPLOMATS DENYING MPS VISA OVER THE ANTI-GAY BILL – ARTHUR KENNEDY

News circulating on the internet indicates that Arthur Kobina Kennedy, one of the leading members of the New Patriotic Party based in the United States has disclosed in an article depicting how some of the members of parliament are being denied visas and threatened to stay away from the Anti-LGBTQ+ bill currently in parliament.

Sited on GHBase.com, in the said article, the onetime presidential candidate of NPP said the intimidation is mainly coming from the western diplomatic community.

TOLERANCE AND THE DEBATE ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY IN GHANA

The pending legislation about homosexuality in Ghana has led to unfortunate manifestations of intolerance. Parliament is considering a bill that would criminalize certain aspects of homosexual conduct in Ghana.

In response, significant segments of the community, including Christian, Muslim and traditional authorities have offered support. On the other hand, there is an impressive array of intellectuals and government officials who are opposing the proposed bill. Indeed, a significant part of the diplomatic community too, has weighed in, to oppose the bill.

My goal today, is not to opine on the merits of the bill. Indeed, I wish, in the words of the sages, we had “allowed sleeping dogs to lie”. The homosexual community, in my view, were doing fine, in their private spaces, subject to the protections of the law accorded to all citizens.

Unfortunately, the opposition to the bill, motivated by the noble desire to promote tolerance for our homosexual community, has been characterized by intolerance.

Some lawmakers, including the bill’s sponsor, Sam George have been threatened publicly and privately. Calls have been made to the Speaker, threatening MPs. Some have been denied visas and warned to stay away from this issue. It is sad that this intimidation is coming mainly from the Western diplomatic community.

In addition to democracy and the rule of law, the West exemplifies, to the eternal admiration of people like me, the attitude of tolerance. It is at the heart of multi-party democracy and the support of minority rights etc that make the West such a powerful example to the rest of the world.

As JFK put it, “Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather, it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.”.

The West argued that dealing with China and Russia was better than isolating them. The West insisted on constructive engagement with Apartheid South Africa while we beat War drums. They were right.. Let us not fight intolerance with intolerance.

The next time there is an election dispute or tribal fighting and the West comes preaching tolerance, it would help if opportunists cannot remind us of Western intolerance!

The problem of this bill is not the Parliament. It is reflecting public opinion. Let us continue to educate the public.

Finally, to Parliament, continue this new attitude, by championing the interest of the public for Healthcare, jobs and for fighting the canker of corruption.

Long live tolerance.

Long live Ghana.

Arthur Kobina Kennedy

“WE NEED A GENERATION THAT CAN DO WITHOUT BUMS AND BOOBS TO BUILD GHANA” – AFIA POKUA

Ghanaian On-Air personality and journalist, Afia Pokua, popularly known as Vim Lady has made a very intriguing statement on social media which has got a lot of people talking.

As stated in Vim Lady’s post, she urged Ghanaians to follow the footsteps of the independent fighter, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who helped build the nation greatly and stop fantasizing over buttocks and breasts.

Vim Lady’s post comes after thousands of Ghanaians took to the comment section beneath a post her colleague, Kofi Adomah Nwanwani made on his Facebook page.

On his page was a beautiful African woman with a gorgeous body shape with the caption “TELL ME WHICH COUNTRY IS SHE FROM.”

 

 

To which Afia Pokua also replied saying, “Typical Ghanaians. When they see buttocks noo, see, almost 1k comments. All for nash. Ino be so?. Let Kofi or someone post about the economy, or appealing for funds to save someone’s life, you see the number of comments, if you will even get 50. We are just like our leaders. Buttocks will kill us like Atubiga said. We need a generation that can do without bums and boobs to build this nation as Nkrumah did”.

SELLY GALLEY IS NOT MY FRIEND-PRAYE HONEHO’S WIFE BEVERLY AFAGLO SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT

Actress and wife of Choirmaster/Praye Honeho Beverly Afaglo have indicated on a television show that she is not friends with Praye Tietia’s wife, Selly Galley.

Beverly Afaglo who was a guest on the ‘United Showbiz’ program on UTV hosted by Abeiku Santana, claimed she has no relationship with her colleague actress, however, they are not enemies either.

On the same platform, she explained herself concerning the circulating video where she was spotted boasting of her wealth and properties, an act that led her to a controversial path with trolls.

This was what she said;

“I will not retract this statement anytime, any day because I didn’t lie. So Ghanaians twisting this story saddens me. First and foremost, they didn’t even start the reason why I did this video. My marriage was on the attack. I went to a radio show, I can’t remember who, and the host asked me that nowadays I frequent London a lot. And rumors have it that I may have a boyfriend or lover there who pays for my ticket.

“I thought it was a joke. The next thing, it has been published on tabloids and everywhere. And I said, what kind of joke is this? How much is a ticket to London? They talk as if I am unemployed or I can’t afford a plane ticket. Why should a man sponsor me before I can travel? So I got angry, and I wanted to spell it out.”

YOU’RE SOME NONSENSE WOMAN I DON’T CARE ABOUT – NANA ABA ANAMOAH TELLS LYDIA FORSON

Ghanaian GHOne TV newscaster, Nana Aba Anamoah on her Twitter page has made a post that could be misunderstood by fans who don’t have a clear picture of her relationship with actress, Lydia Forson.

Nana Aba Anamoah indicated that she misses actress Lydia Forson but she is one nonsense woman whom she doesn’t care about.

It could clearly be noted that Nana Aba Anamoah was expressing her friendly love to her but to anyone who does not really understand their relationship well, will mean an insult to just starting an already existing beef between the two.

We are yet to see the reaction Lydia Forson will give after seeing this post.
