The Omanhene of (Ati-Morkwa Traditional council in Twifo Ati-Morkwa District, Oseadieyo Kwasi Kanin (IV) have stated emphatically that, no one should put the blame of Galamsey activity on the chiefs, speaking with Odiasempa Kwaku Ahiaku, Omanhene noted that government gives concessions to mining companies without consulting the chiefs in the area not even divisional chiefs, hence they become unaware of any Galamsey activity and if you call the person in charge of the mining activity in your palace, he will refused to appear because he will tell you he has his concessions or certificate from the government.
He finally said, “the only way the government can fight Galamsey in this country is to collaborate with the Chiefs and give them back their powers”.

A 45-year-old farmer whose name was giving as Akwasi alias Chocho has committed suicide after killing his 38-year-old wedded wife, Afriyie at Adumasa a farming community, near Bomfa in the Juabeng Municipality of Ashanti Region.
The man, Akwasi, was reportedly lost his temper following a heated argument between him and his wife, Afriyie, leading to him butchering her on their farm, when both went to peel cocoa pod.
According to the eyewitness account, both deceased struggled on the process under the cocoa farm, which the strength of the man overpowered his wife, and had the opportunity to butchered her with cutlass and later transfer the body to hidden place.
It was revealed that, the man Akwasi, couldn’t get back home after killing his wife so he however walk almost 200 meters from the murdering scene to a nearby river to either poison his self or used other chemical which also send him to his early grave.
The grandfather of the male deceased, Akwasi Chocho, explained that, they were shock after hearing such tragedy.
He therefore explained how and when they got information about the demises of his relate and wife.
The assembly member for Adumasa electoral area, Hon. Patrick Yeboah Boateng, also expressed worried about the case, says deceased were having a marital issues, which also results in minor fighting among the husband and wife.

Akufo Addo Cautioned Not To Maintain Amoah Awuku, As MCE- Atwima Nwabiagya South Chiefs
The chiefs of Atwima Nwabiagya South Municipality of the Ashanti Region led by Bafour Owusu Afriyie II (Otumfuo Abrafuohene) says, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Government led by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo not even try to maintain their MCE in his second teams in office again because they can not work with a disrespectful Municipal Chief Like Hon. Michael Amoah Awuku.
There are so many developmental projects across the length and breadth of country and many Ghanaians appreciate the good works of the President by re-electing him to manage “The Office of The President” for the second term.
The inhabitants of Atwima Nwabiagya South Municipal Assembly perceive themselves like foreigners on their own land. Nobody talks about anything happening in the Municipality even if things are going wrong.
This seeming culture of silence has gained roots because any individual especially, a party member, who voices out against any wrong doing in the Municipality will be side-lined or suffer brutalities of“machomen” beatings for speaking the hard truth.
The lack of developmental projects is attributed to the bad leadership of the municipality led by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), HON. MICHAEL AMOAH AWUKU who has been the barrier of development in the Atwima Nwabiagya South Municipal Assembly.
The MCE has woefully failed in his deliveryin the use of Internally Generated Fund (IGF) and he cannot show a single evidence for development project initiated with IGF.
The Hon. Amoah Awuku has exhibited gross disrespect to Traditional Authorities in the Municipality.
The custodians of the land have not been involved whatsever in matters of development in the area. His high level of incompetence manifests in the brouhaha concerning the Abuakwa market, Bad Inner Roads (No reshaping of roads), Flooding on DKC, failure to construct a bridge on the Abuakwa-Housing road *(which has been a death trap that has killed ten (10) innocent souls within 4 years and some months),* corrupt practices, among others are some of the reasons of which the people of Atwima Nwabiagya South Municipal Assembly think the MCE, HON. MICHAEL AMOAH AWUKU under-performed in his first term.
The Chiefs and Queens includes: Nana Yaw Akuoko , Otumfuo Assinhene, Obofuo Atwimakwaa Boakye-Dankwa, Gyankobaahene, Nana Agyenim Boateng, Otumfuo Wireduhene
Nana Owusu Appau, Asenemasohene Bantama Gyasehene, Otumfuo Wiredu Hene, Nana Ama Takyia, Otumfouryere, Nana Akua Afriyie Owoabrempon – Fankyenebra and the Chief of Abuakwa-Maakro, Bafour Owusu Afriyie II (Otumfuo Abrafuohene) led the aforementioned chiefs and other Chiefs and Queens from the various communities to pay courtesy visit to the President to congratulate him for winning the just ended election. They also used the opportunity to discuss with the President the underdevelopment, hardships and problems of the Municipality on behalf of the good people of Atwima Nwabiagya Municipal Assembly.
The Chiefs, therefore appealed to the government to come to the people’s aid. Immediately after the chiefs’ courtesy visit to the President, the MCE, Hon. Michael Amoah Awuku started a campaign to ask the chiefs in an uncultured manner as to why they did not consult him before visiting the President.
He then used his boys as a medium to insult the chiefs from one radio station to the other disregarding their social status.
That is not all, the MCE has declared to deal with those Chiefs boot for boot if only he is re-appointed as the MCE. We the chiefs stand for peace and development, and it is clear that Hon. Michael Amoah Awuku doesn’t have the municipality at heart but rather seeks for his personal gains. We therefore see him as incompetent to lead the people of Atwima Nwabiagya Municipal Assembly.
We are pleading with the President to not to re-appoint Hon. Michael Amoah Awuku to lead. Atwima Nwabiagya Municipal Assembly. The people need accelerated development and Hon. Michael Amoah Awuku is not capable of steering the affairs of the municipality and the fortunes of NPP.
