Ghanaians who are condemning Ghanaian media personalities Kwasi Kyei Darkwah, because of his son’s sexual orientation, has received harsh criticism from him.
The son of KKD, Kwaku Darkwah Kyei-Darkwah, was captured in a viral video leading hundreds of LGBTQ individuals in campaigning for their rights in the UK.
Many Ghanaians’ reactions to this news were negative, with some labeling KKD a negligent father for failing to teach his kid Ghanaian values.
KKD has said that he is merely a shepherd and not an engineer to instruct his son on how to conduct his life in an effort to defend his activities.
In an interview on Power FM that was monitored by 1Family Radio, he also urged people to quit criticizing his son since he has every right to lead any kind of life he chooses.
“Those who call me and are worried about my son, I believe it’s because you love him. And those who are insulting me because of him, I leave them to God.’’
“They are insulting me because my son is transgender and he is leading a trans movement in the U.K. At least he is able to lead something,’’ he said.
“Whether I agree with him or not, it’s none of your business. It’s not yours to discuss. You can’t tell me how to handle my son.’’
“It was God who gave you the strength to train your child. Parents are shepherds, not engineers. Parents are shepherds, not engineers. So, reduce the trolls,’’ he added.
