Manya Krobo Traditional Council to enforce bye-laws
Nene Agbau Narh said this at the launch of this year’s Ngmayem Festival of the traditional area at Odumase-Krobo.
This year’s festival, on the theme, ‘Our culture, Our Heritage, Our Pride,’ would be celebrated in October.
Nene Agbau Narh, who is also the Chairman of the Festival Planning Committee, said education of the children in the traditional area was of importance to the paramountcy and that there was the need to protect the children who were falling as a result of anti-social activities.
He explained that the spinning of music from dawn to dusk during funerals in the traditional area had influenced pupils in schools as most of them got involved in immoral activities at the expense of their studies.
‘We shall enforce the bye-laws and those who would flout them would face the full rigours of the law,’ he emphasised.
Nene Agbau Narh also spoke against women in the area attending prayer camps whenever they were sick at the expense of hospitals.
He explained that as much as he believed in spiritual healing, the rate at which spiritual healing centres were springing up in the area and the way women attended those centres were worrisome, adding that ‘those activities lead to a lot of breaks in marriages as some of the women paid more attention to those spiritual camps than their marital homes’.
Present at the function was the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Lower Manaya, Mr Isaac Agbo Tetteh, and the Member of Parliament, Mr Ebenezer OkleteyTerlabi.
