Celebrities who openly condemned Nungua Wulomo’s marriage to a 12-year-old girl

Celebrities in Ghana have taken to social media to express their strong opinions regarding the recent marriage between a 63-year-old traditional priest in Nungua, Gborbu Wulomo, Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII, and a 12-year-old girl.

The news of this marriage, which emerged on March 30, has sparked widespread discussions and criticisms on Twitter, with celebrities expressing profound anger over the situation.

Many of these public figures have condemned the act as dehumanising, while others have criticised the chief’s justification that the young bride won’t be expected to fulfil sexual obligations.

They have emphasised that Wulomo’s justification does not make his marriage to a minor legal in any way.

In response to the outcry, the Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Hon. Stephen Asamoah-Boateng, has promised to investigate the matter thoroughly and take appropriate action.

Furthermore, organisations like Africa Education Watch have called on the police to apprehend Gborbu Wulomo for unlawfully marrying an underage girl.
