Controversial ‘celebrity’ lawyer, Mr. Maurice Ampaw has alleged that many of the so-called men of God in Ghana are currently sleeping with married women with others sleeping with girls who are even below the legal sex having age in the country.
He makes the point that if about ten pastors are lined up today, only two out of the number will pass a test of such manner.
Lawyer Ampaw speaking in an interview on an Accra based radio said his basic problem with these pastors is that they are hypocrites who act as very holy people but do all the evil things behind the scene.
This allegation came up as a point to back his case that the President Akuffo-Addo government should as a matter of urgency pass a bail to legalize sex tourism in the country. According to him, even though his call for the government to legalize sex tourism is very laudable, these hypocrite pastors will oppose it and say it is a sin.
On his case of the need for sex tourism to be legalized, Ampaw stated that many of the foreigners who have been visiting the country for tourism sleep with the ladies and pay them meager sums of money because the trade has not been legalized and institutionalized. He stressed that some ladies take either Gh20 cedis or Gh10,00 cedis, with others taking just kenkey when they sleep with these foreigners, which is not supposed to be so in his view.
He further strengthened his call by stating that these ladies who will have plans to engage in the trade should be registered and medically screened by the government. After which they will be given a license and some fixed rates to work with.
Lawyer Ampaw was quick to add that even though people always think sex tourism is mostly about sex, it is not always the case. He revealed that some of his friends and himself usually just want to have the pleasure of seeing ladies walk about and play, which also forms part of sex tourism.
