Former Deputy Speaker of Parliament Mike Ocquaye has warned that Africa’s traditional family system is under threat from gay promoters from the West.
“We consider this an abomination. We don’t want a moustache man marrying another bearded man and it is the right of the children to call a man father and a woman mother. Children brought up in the other way will become what we call miscreants,” the history professor told an antigay forum in Accra.
He said: “Indeed the family is under satanic attack and we should take great care to protect it,” adding that: “We Africans have certain values and our friends who want to remain our friends in the Western world must respect our values.”
According to him, the family system in the West is vanishing because that part of the World has allowed itself to be engulfed by homosexuality.
“At least British recognises it is in a serious crisis today because as they themselves say: ‘The family has broken down’. The family in Europe has broken down. Two years ago, the British Prime Minister himself made a public announcement of this,” the former legislator who is also a Clergyman said.
