Ghanaian music diva and 4 time VGMA best female vocalist, Efya, has suggested that men who rape women should be castrated.
Efya believes that castrating rapists will deter potential perpetrators from engaging in the act since men put premium on their private parts.

Speaking on 3fm’s Urban Blend show, Efya did not mince words on rape as the heinous activity seems to be getting out of hand due due to astronomical rise cases.
She said, “men who rape women are not treated the way they should be treated because of the amount of damage that they do cause to the woman, I feel the same kind of damage should be done to the man.”
When asked about the preferred punishment for male rapists, the singer responded that castration is the way forward.
She explained, “if we castrate a few of them, they will stop because they are very attached to that part of the body which they used in this act and if we take it away from them the same way that they take away our dignity and our pride and our power when they rape us when we are three years old”
Knowing that a victim’s decision to speak out is one of the ways that rapists could be fished out, trialed and punished, Efya called on them to speak out so that their offenders are dealt with accordingly.
“I want every girl out there that is being abused…I want you to know that something can be done about it just because the person is taking care of you doesn’t mean that your life is going to be over if you report it. I need everybody to speak. We need the women to speak up. We need the mothers to speak up. We need the aunties to speak up, the sisters,” she said.
