VIDEO: “I Am Saddened, Passage Of Anti-LGBTQI+ Law Is Against Constitution” – Prof. Emerita Takyiwaa Manuh<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

Senior Research Fellow at CDD and Emerita Professor Takyiwaa Manuh has expressed her sadness over the anti-LGBTQI+ bill’s passage in Parliament.

Emerita Professor Takyiwaa Manuh remembered on the Ama Ghana Morning Show on Time FM 97.7MHz that although she lobbied unsuccessfully to oppose the bill’s passing, it was nonetheless passed.

The Parliament of Ghana on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 saw the passage of legislation by Ghana’s parliament that tightens the country’s crackdown on the rights of LGBTQ individuals and those who support lesbian, gay, and other non-conventional sexual orientations or gender identities.

The bill has been forwarded to the president’s desk for ratification.

According to Emerita Professor Takyiwaa Manuh, the 1992 constitution is violated by the law’s passage.

She pointed out that because the West African nation is often seen as respecting human rights more than most other African nations, the bill’s passing is not good news for the nation.
