Thousands of revelers bring life to Kwahu as Easter fever heightens

- Thousands of Ghanaians have converged at Kwahu to celebrate Easter

- The AIDS commission has distributed 60,000 condoms so far

The Easter festivity is ongoing across the world and here in Ghana, thousands of holiday revelers are heading to the town of Kwahu to celebrate the festivity.

The reason for the choice of Kwahu remains due to the tourist attractions with celebrations culminating to the most-loved paragliding exercise.

Kwahu Easter festivity, which is originally meant to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has now been seen as a promiscuous event which sees revelers, especially teenagers, engage in various 'unacceptable vices'.

It pulls thousands of tourists and hoteliers who bank in the festivity as most of them are feared to have been booked already.

Meanwhile, the chief of Akuapem Berekusu in the Eastern Region, Nana Oteng Korankye, is calling for the arrest of persons who wear tight and short and skimpy dresses to this year's Kwahu Easter celebration.

But, one development which beautifies the Kwahu Easter festivities is the paragliding festival which was introduced more than a decade ago to promote tourism in the country, and also to spice up the Easter celebrations in Kwahu.
