Ghanaian singer Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu, widely known as Sister Debby, has urged authorities to focus on arresting murderers instead of passing an anti-gay bill.

In a social media post on Thursday, February 29, she singled out the late music executive Fenneck Okyere, who was 31 years old when unknown assailants brutally killed him by breaking into his house on March 13, 2014.

Sister Debby told the Ghana police to learn from the South African police, who have arrested six people in connection with the murder of the late rapper AKA.

AKA died along with his friend Jabulani Ngcobo outside a restaurant in Johannesburg in February 2023.

She noted that in Ghana, no police have been able to arrest Fenneck's murderers or even identify suspects.

Instead of emulating South Africa's efforts, she argued that Ghana is emulating Uganda by passing an "anti-gay hate bill".

"In Ghana, no police has been able to arrest Fedec’s murderer or even suspects. Instead of emulating South Africa, we dey emulate Uganda. Ghana is a failed state especially with this new hate bill as the cherry on top," she wrote.

The bill, referred to as the "Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill", was unanimously passed by Parliament on February 28.
