Gender Minister Supports Calls To Ban Counsellor Lutterodt From Speaking In The Media

Published

on


The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamle Morrison has asked that George Lutterodt must be banned from speaking in the media with immediate effect.

According to the Minister, she described George Lutterodt’s comment as insane and asked rhetorically wether he has raped somebody before.

Speaking to Valentina Ofori Afriyie on 12 Live on Class91.3FM on Friday, 10 July 2020, Mrs Morrison stated that she “was surprised a sane human being can sit on radio and television and make some utterances.”

“Has he raped somebody before? Does he know how rape victims feel about being raped… it is sad that the interview went on. What was the programme about? How can somebody behave like that? This is so insane. This is just not right,” she stated.

She indicated that Ama K Abebrese reached out to her concerning gathering signatures for the petition, which the Ministry would have a look at, adding, however, that the“counsellor”should not be entertained on the airwaves.
