- The chief of Denkyira-Obuasi has indicated the desire of his townspeople to visit the late Maxwell Mahama’s family
- The regal stated that they would play their condolences and seek forgiveness at the meeting
YEN has learnt that the people and royals of the Denkyira-Obuasi community has made plans to send a delegation to visit the family of the late Captain Maxwell Mahama.
The late military officer was killed by the residents of Denkyira-Obuasi in a gruesome lynching.
Reports indicated that the Assemblyman of the area had gathered the youth of the area to lynch Captain Mahama after a “snail seller” suspected him of being an armed robber.
The Chief of the area hinted at the said meeting with the family at an event meant to cleanse the land of the curses incurred from the sad incident.
Krontihene Odiamono Twum Barimah II, the chief of Denkyira-Obuasi, stated at the event, that “the actions of the residents” are very regretted.
He stated that the community is looking forward to reconciling with the Mahama family with their visit to pay their condolences.
The regal also used the opportunity to call on Ghanaians to forgive the people of Denkyira-Obuasi for the crimes of some few residents.
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.
