Information reaching MSTV Gh has that a young married man is missing and all search to no avail. The young man’s wife reached out our reporter Mike Owusu to for public announcement on the media.

Salia Osuman is a young muslim married man with six children, Salia has gone missing for months and cannot be found after several family search team went searching.

Salia is accused of being bisexual who was caught with another having affair. Accra New Town is a Muslim community hence issue of LGBTQ+ is treated with anger and hatred. Upon the community realizing that Salia is a bisexual who is married, has six children with his with Khadija.
The accused is often seen with a male friend called Hamid, not knowing to the public the two friends are bisexual and having affair hence their strong relationship.

A man young saw them kissing when passing behind Hamid’s room and informed the community youth who planned to monitor their movement. Unlucky for the suspect they caught again kissing again when Salia visited Hamid. The youth group attacked them, beat, and threatened them with death fortunately for them elders for the came for their rescue.
Though Salia and Hamid were freed but life became unbearable in the community as the community starting shaming them, banned from entering mosque, vendors do not sell anything to them. On a bad day children will be stoning them in public and public shaming them.
Salia became jobless, was in the room until a day he went out never return and family has search virtually everywhere to no avail.
Life is hard me and the children after my husband gone missing…wife said.

NB: It is no secret that the Ghanaian people does not support or entertain such act, hence anytime they suspect you of such behavior, they will attack you which might lead to death or disability, they described LGBTQ+ activist as evil and indecent people.
This is the holy Quran stands on the issue: The Quran mentions sex between men several times, almost all of them in the context of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, in which some city inhabitants demand sexual access to the messengers sent by God to the prophet Lot (or Lut). The Quranic story is almost the same as the version in the Bible. Later explanations of the Quran agreed that the “abomination” alluded to by the Quranic passages was attempted sodomy (specifically anal intercourse) between men. The sins of the people of Lut later became proverbial and the Arabic words for the act of anal sex between men such as “liwat” and for a person who performs such acts “Luti”; both derive from the name Lut, although Lut was not the one demanding sex.

The Constitution of Ghana: Section 104 (b) of the Ghanaian Criminal Code of 1960, criminalizes “unnatural carnal knowledge”, as a misdemeanor. Section 104 defines “unnatural carnal knowledge” as “sexual intercourse with a person in an unnatural manner or with an animal”. Due to the definition contained in Section 99 of the code, which stipulates “penetration”, an “unnatural manner” is taken to refer to sex acts between men–not between women–and oral and anal sex between people of different sexes. Misdemeanors carry a penalty of up to three years imprisonment under Article 296 of the Criminal Procedural Code.

The Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and its traditional interpretations in Judaism and Christianity have historically affirmed and endorsed a patriarchal and heteronormative approach towards human sexuality, favoring exclusively penetrative vaginal intercourse between men and women within the boundaries of marriage over all other forms of human sexual activity, including autoeroticism, masturbation, oral sex, non-penetrative and non-heterosexual sexual intercourse, believing and teaching that such behaviors are forbidden because they are considered to be sinful, and further compared to or derived from the behavior of the alleged residents of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Africa traditional believers does not favor the act in no equal terms hence it is very hard for anyone to safely practice LGBTQ+ in Africa which Ghana is no exception, there is a bill in parliament of Ghana to criminalize the act.
