Kwesi Pratt has come hard on the Vice President of the United States of America, Kamala Harris over her utterances during her visit to Ghana.
Addressing the press at Jubilee House, Kamala Harris declared the US support for the homosexual community.
Standing alongside Ghana's President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Mrs. Harris said she felt “very strongly” about supporting the development of LGBTQ+ rights in Africa.
“I will also say that this is an issue that we consider and I consider to be a human rights issue and that will not change,” she said.
On Wednesday, she also announced a $1 billion initiative to improve women's economic empowerment in Africa.
"Improving the economic status of women and girls is not only a matter of human rights, justice and equity, it is also a strategic imperative that reduces poverty and promotes sustainable economic growth," she emphasized.
But Mr. Pratt has blasted the United States over their position on Africa and how they seem to be imposing their rights on African countries.
"If you knew democracy, would racism be so rampant in your country? If you knew democracy, would you have gone to Iraq to kill one million people? You supported Apartheid. You showed the way for Nelson Mandela to be arrested. Are you the ones to teach us democracy?", he questioned.
Mr. Pratt said these on Peace FM's morning show "Kokrokoo".
