This gov’t has no plans to change the laws of same sex marriage – Nana Addo


President Nana Addo said his government has no plans to change the laws of same-sex marriage in Ghana while addressing some people in 2018.

Section 104 of the Ghanaian Criminal Code of 1960 contains provisions criminalising consensual same-sex sexual acts between males. Under Section 104(1)(b) “unnatural carnal knowledge” with consent is considered a misdemeanour. Under other subsections of Section 104, rape and bestiality are also criminalised. Additionally, Section 104(2) defines “unnatural carnal knowledge” as “sexual intercourse with a person in an unnatural manner or with an animal.” Under Article 296(4) of the Criminal Procedural Code, a misdemeanour shall be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years.
