- Authorities at Kwahu have banned the invocation of curses there
- This follows high cases of cure-related deaths in the township
The Kwahu Traditional Council is suspending the act of cursing in the township following recent cases of mysterious deaths.
The traditional council believes there is now a culture of cursing in the township and that even Christians and Muslims are currently actively involved.
According to the traditional council, students have also joined the bandwagon invoking curses against their colleagues.
Chief of Kwahu-Abene, Nana Simple Wiredu explains how serious the situation is. According to him, not less than twenty complaints of the invocation of curses are made on a daily basis.
“It is very disheartening to note that, at least 20 cases of invocation of curses are recorded in the Kwahu area every day, even in the olden days when Christianity had not spread, invoking of curses wasn’t rampant but now even Christians, Mallams and traditionalists are all invoking curses, everybody is into it.
We have forbidden invocation of curses with immediate effect, anyone caught culpable will be dealt with,” he warned, during a speech at a traditional durbar to mark Kwahu Adae-Kese.
On his part, the Omanhene of Kwahu Traditional Area, Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong II cried for unity among residents and support the traditional Council champion development agenda for Kwahu.
