However, Twum Barimah II did not revealed the exact date they would be visiting the family, but assured that the visit would be before the burial.

According to the chief, the mention of “Denkyira-Obuasi” anywhere usually incites anger in the hearts of many and has become an issue of mockery among Ghanaians.

YEN has earlier reported that the funeral and burial rites of the late Maxwell Mahama is supposed to take place on June 9, 2017.
