The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kwabre East District Nana Osei Asibbey Bonsu, told Kumasi-based Abusua FM that the DISEC and traditional leaders at Ahwiaa met and agreed to impose the ban in order to prevent future clashes.

According to him, DISEC and the traditional leaders will work to prevent an escalation of the tensions in the community.

“Since we don’t want to see any clash again in the Ahwiaa community, DISEC and traditional leaders have banned soloku and wake keeping. Even where is a funeral in the community, the moment the family head will leave the place the machines will also go off. We will maintain security presence here in order to ensure law and order” he said.
