Don’t panic, we’ll triumph – LGBT+ Rights Ghana react to office raid [ARTICLE]


The group said they will triumph despite a raid of their office by the security personnel.

The new office located at Ashongman in Accra was closed after the landlord of the building and the Kwabenya Traditional Council stormed the apartment of the organization.

According to the owner of the property, Dr. Asenso Gyambi, he was unhappy with the answers given to him by the tenant who rented the house.

He said one Alex Kofi Donkor, who doubles as the Director of LGBTQI rented the place under the pretext of using it as an office for a health NGO.

Narrating the story to Accra-based Joy FM, the landlord said he received a text message from an undisclosed source that the house is being used for LGBTQ activities.

“When I asked for evidence he sent me pictures of an event that was held in this house so I called the agent and I asked him who rented the house because they have been here for just two months.

“I asked him if he was aware an event of this nature took place here? He said ‘Oh Doc, nothing really it was just a party and fundraiser event we were having and it is all over social media.”

The Kwabenya Traditional Council also condemned LGBTQI activities within its catchment area and it comes after the European Union was accused of supporting and sponsoring the activities of LBGT rights in Ghana despite opposition from some Christian and other religious organizations in the country.

But the LGBT group in a Facebook post appealed to human rights organisation and allies to come to their aid.

The group said: “While this unfortunate incident has happened, we wish to encourage all our members, and queer Ghanaians to stay calm. Do not panic.

“We anticipated this. We will triumph.

“The police may have raided our office, and closed it down but the real office is in our hearts, and minds.”
