Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun

Ashanti Regional Chief Imam has urged a 9-member peace and reconciliation committee to continue to resolve disputes, including chieftaincy within Zongo Communities in Greater Kumasi.

Though the committee has achieved some successes in the last three months, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun says its effective work is needed to settle misunderstandings among groups.

He says with the continued guidance of the Asantehene concerns that always trigger misunderstanding will soon be addressed.

The purpose of the committee, which officially began its work in August 2021, aims to bring major contributory factors into play for possible redress and come out with ideas for problem-solving.

Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu the second tasked the regional chief Imam to find lasting solutions to longstanding disputes and other related issues within the Zongo communities.
