Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, has condemned Counsellor George Lutterodt for promoting “rape culture”.
He said rape and violence against women are something Ghanaians should not joke with.
He added that Ghana should develop a robust environment to protect women.
Rape and violence against women is not something we should joke or toy with. We need to develop a more robust environment for protecting our wives, daughters, sisters and mothers. https://t.co/Fr7Vk9xW9s— Kojo Oppong Nkrumah (@konkrumah) July 9, 2020
“Rape and violence against women are not something we should joke or toy with. We need to develop a more robust environment for protecting our wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers,” he tweeted.
His comment comes after the counsellor in an interview on a local TV station Wednesday, July 8, claimed that victims of rape at a point ‘enjoy’ the act.
His comments have been greeted with lots of condemnation from celebrities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Juliet Ibrahim, Lydia Forson, and Sister Deborah.
Meanwhile, a petition to the Ministry of Communications and National Communications Authority to ban the counsellor from being empanelled on all television and radio stations has since gathered momentum on social media.
