Paramount Chief and President of Kwahu Traditional Area, Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong II

The Kwahu Traditional Council has asked all natives, not resident in the town presently, to stay where they are until further notice to protect its largely-aged population from the coronavirus.

The decision was arrived at following a meeting between the Council and the Kwahu COVID-19 Team – an advisory body responsible for handling the town’s coronavirus response and prevention.

In a press release copied to Joy News, the Council said the directive is in line with President Akufo-Addo’s move to control and prevent the spread of the pandemic.

 It, therefore, directed all natives of Kwahu who currently live outside Kwahu, “to continue to stay wherever they may be, in the weeks to come and postpone all planned visits to Kwahu until further notice.

“Kwahus living in Kwahu should remain in Kwahu. No travelling outside of Kwahu until the pandemic is contained,” the statement added.
