Owning to recent spins and misrepresentations put on a story DAILY GUIDE published as far back as January 9, 2012, we are compelled to reproduce the article in order to set the records straight. There was no malice in our decision to publish the story.
âWhen the frog narrates events from the river-bank to the effect that the crocodile is dead, you have no reason to doubt itâ.
A very respectable-looking man who is based in Tema has told DAILY GUIDE that he has had a homosexual relationship with a former deputy minister of state who now heads a very reputable bank that has its headquarters on the High Street in Accra.
Joseph Kwabena Owusu-Sekyere, believed to be in his late fifties, personally and confidently walked into the offices of DAILY GUIDE after several contacts with our Tema correspondent, and narrated how he and the said banker had kissed, caressed, romanced, licked and sucked each otherâs sex organs in a long-standing homosexual relationship.
Mr. Owusu-Sekyere revealed further that he and the said top banker (name withheld for now) fell in love with each other when they were students at a top boyâs senior secondary school in Cape Coast in the Central Region.
âAfter secondary school, I traveled to the United States of America and he went to the university but when I returned, he had been made a deputy minister and we continued our sexual relationships although he was married.
âI would go to his office during lunch time and we would drive to his house because the wife would not be home by then. We would kiss, fondle each other, make love and he would give me money. There was this time his house boy nearly caught us,â Mr. Owusu-Sekyere narrated.
Interestingly, Owusu-Sekyere said he did not mind at all if his photographs were taken and splashed on the front page of the paper because according to him, there was too much hypocrisy being displayed over issues concerning homosexuality.
âLook, everyone knows this and they used to call us âCreptuaâ. You ask him about it or just mention my name and he cannot deny. I can go with you when you are ready to ask his side of the storyâŚ.He was very passionate about it and was deeply involved so I do not understand all the hypocrisy going on about gays and the attempt to portray the whole thing as if it just started or as if the big names in society are not involvedâŚI can mention a lot of names of people in government and give you the evidence if you really want. I can mention several old boys who were in school with us and they can all confirm this,â he noted.
Owusu-Sekyere explained that he entered secondary school in 1966 and left in 1973 while the top banker entered the same school in 1964 and left in 1971.
He said their sexual relationship lasted from 1969 to 1971 when the ex-minster, then his senior, left secondary school.
He said they however continued later on in their adult life, sometimes on the blind side of his wife, either in his car or hiding in the garage of his residence.
When asked why he was revealing this now, and why he wanted the world to know, Owusu-Sekyere said he felt hurt because it was the banker, then his senior, who introduced him to homosexual activities and got him addicted.
âNow it is something I have done for a long time and I do not like the way he and other big persons in authority treat gays and shy away from the very practice they are involved in,â he explained.
Owusu-Sekyere revealed further that he has a son who is sojourned in London but he did not have a wife and continues to engage in homosexuality.
DAILY GUIDEâs attempt to talk to the said ex-minister on the issue proved futile.
