Residents of Domeabra demonstrate against sale of cemetery land.

Traditional leaders and residents of Domeabra have demonstrated over the sale of cemetery land. The demonstrators accused the Atufutse of the community, Nii Kwabina Akomea of being behind the sale.

Asafotse Nii Kojo Kwao III, who led the protest said the sale of the land which has over the years served as a resting place for their ancestors is an abominable act that must not be tolerated.

He said “The place is a cemetery specifically designated for burial. It has been here for over ninety (90) years and has been inherited by our generation.“

“ It is for no other purpose than a cemetery. All the traditional leaders met and we demanded answers. We were told that the land has been given out by our Atufutse but everyone in the community including we the traditional leaders and even the children are against it.“

“We want the cemetery maintained here. And if anyone is interested in having a land here, we have a lot to allocate to the person but not the cemetery where we will all be buried when we die someday.“

The demonstrators thus demanded the immediate reversal of the alleged sale of the land saying the consequences may be catastrophic if it is not averted.
