Assin-Apimanim honours two ‘Tourism Greats’

The chief and people of the Assin-Apimanim Traditional Council area have bestowed recognition and honour on two individuals for helping establish and promote tourism in the Assin-Apimanim area of the Central Region.

They are Mr. Nkunu Akyea, an educator and Rabbi Kohain Halevi, an entrepreneur.

This recognition was bestowed on the side lines of a grand durbar hosted by Barima Kwame Nkyi XII and the people of Assin-Manso to mark the 11th Edition of the 2014 National Emancipation Day Celebration.

The day also coincided with the 45th anniversary of the enstoolment of Barima Kwame Nkyi XII as Omanhene and President of Assin-Apimanim Traditional area.

The Assin-Apimanim area hosts the Assin-Manso Slave Heritage Site/Park, a place of historical significance, especially to African Americans due to its important role as a market in the ignominious slave trade.

Mr. Nkunu Akyea has been involved in the tourism sector in Ghana over the last 40 years.

A renowned geographer and educator, he has leveraged his deep knowledge of Ghana to promote its tourist attractions, especially in the Central Region as well as building its human capacity base.

Rabbi Kohain Halevi is an African-American entrepreneur who has chosen to make Ghana his home for the last eighteen plus years.

He has been deeply involved in promoting interest in Africa among African-Americans, including promoting the Pan African Historical Theatre Festival (PANAFEST) of which he has been the Executive Secretary.
