Following the rising cases of coronavirus in Ghana and worldwide, the paramount chief of Kwahu has put the vibrant town under lockdown to stop foreigners, locals and indigenes from bringing coronavirus to the town.
Kwahu Festival is celebrated in all the Kwahu communities, it is a festival of the Chiefs and people which comes off every year. Though traditionally a Christian celebration of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, it serves as a homecoming for the Kwahus. It was instituted to renew their commitment to the Christian faith.
But owing to the outbreak of coronavirus this year, the chief and opinion leaders have cancelled the event. They subsequently issued a statement to that effect.
