The UK Parliament has invited members of Ghana’s Constitutional, Legal, and Parliamentary Affairs Committee to a meeting over the anti-gay bill, according to the committee chair, Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi.
In an exclusive interview with TV3, he said that the MPs will depart Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on Sunday, June 12 and then report to the meeting on Monday, June 13.
“The invitation was delivered to the Speaker, who then passed it to the Committee. Four committee members, including myself and the ranking member, will attend this crucial meeting. We were meant to leave tonight, but due to flying arrangements, we will leave on Sunday, so we will walk into the conference on Monday morning, and we will be through by Wednesday,” he remarked on Saturday, June 11.
The contentious bill has split sentiment in Ghana.
While some, especially religious and traditional groups, welcomed the Bill and hoped for its passage, others asserted that it could draw the ire of the world community against Ghana.
The bill is supported by Ningo Prampram legislator Samuel Nartey George and some of his legislative colleagues.
