As the struggle for the legitimate Ga Mantse continues, the Judicial Committee of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs has directed the combatants to restrain themselves from participating in this year’s Homowo Festival.
According to the Judicial Committee, the contending parties – Boni Nii Tackie, Adama Latse II and Dr Kelvin Tackie, Nii Agyemankese, Dr Nii Tettey Kwei and Nii Dodoo Nsaki II – should not involve themselves in the festival.
The Committee, chaired by Aadegon Ngmogmowuyaa Akwesi Anime VI, gave the order during its last sitting on Friday, June 7, 2019 at Dodowa.
“In view of the fact that the Homowo Festival begins on 11th June, 2019, we shall restrain all parties in this suit from playing any active role and any traditional role as Ga Mantse.
“The parties are not to conduct themselves as Ga Mantse in connection with the Homowo Festival, starting from the 11th June, 2019 until and including the 26th June, 2019, when the Judicial Committee will reassemble and give further directions.”
