Speaking with Ismail Akwei on the Low Down Show on GhanaWeb TV, Ghanaian reggae artiste and radio presenter, Abubakar Ahmed, better known as Blakk Rasta, revealed that instead of homosexuals being thrown into jails, why don’t they send them to psychiatric hospitals to be treated.
In the interview, he said:
If I go by what he says, then I think that a man sleeping with another man is totally abhorrent. It’s not normal and, for that matter, these people need to be taken to a place where they can get help rather than support a bill that has to do with the imbalance of the mind, “
“For me, I want to understand why a man would want to sleep with another man. From my readings, it is because human beings want to have some kind of freedom as to who they can love and who they cannot love.
“Reading from the past tells me that when a man wants to sleep with another man, it’s madness. In Germany, there is a hospital for gay people. A man who wants to sleep with another man, and great
philosophers attributed that to “mental imbalance.”
