The University of Professional Studies (UPSA) Accra, has expelled two female students from the school’s hostel for allegedly engaging in homos*xuality.
A notice released by the school says these students were involved in a s*xual activity with one male who is a non-resident.
It went on to say the two female students are alleged to be l*sbians.
“Engaging in acts of l*sbianism is contrary to Section 1.28.11(g) of the Student Handbook of the University of Professional Studies, Accra; 2018 and Schedule G 8.3 (23) of the Statute of the University.”
“They have since been dismissed from UPSA Hostel awaiting further sanctions from Management”.
The school therefore urged students to “desist from s*xual misconduct and observe all other rules and regulations in the Hostel as well as the Student Handbook. Any student caught infringing any of the regulations will not be spared.”
As it stands, the act of L*sbianism and homos*xuality is illegal in Ghana.
Lawmakers in the country are still deliberating on passing a law to officially criminalise activities of LGBTQ+.
