Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko highlights disparity: Harsher penalties for same-sex marriages vs. older males marrying young girls. Join the discussion on this controversial issue.

Prominent New Patriotic Party figure Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has called attention to the disparity in treatment between same-sex marriages and adult marriages to young girls.

His comments come in the wake of the contentious marriage of 63-year-old Gborbu Wulomo to a 13-year-old girl.

The tragedy has sparked discussions about the need for stronger laws to prevent underage marriage in the nation.

The Ga priest Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII came under heavy fire when a video of his marriage to Naa Okromo went viral. The ceremony took place at Nungua on Saturday, March 30, 2024, and attracted a lot of attention.

Gabby Otchere-Darko questioned why gays receive less terms than older adults who marry kids, despite the latter group’s outspoken opposition to jail sentences under anti-gay laws.

A bill imposing a three-to five-year prison term for anyone who knowingly promote or sponsor LGBTQ activities was passed by Parliament on Thursday, February 8. If caught in the act, offenders face a minimum of six months and a maximum of three years in jail.

On Tuesday, April 2, 2024, Mr. Otchere-Darko blasted Ghana for trying to impose fines on consenting homosexual partnerships while ignoring child marriage in a post on X (previously Twitter).
