They have also appealed to those currently in Kwahu to desist from leaving the area, and rather lock themselves on the mountains.
This, the chiefs believe will help prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus disease in the area.
The President of the Kwahu Traditional Council, Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong made the appeal in a statement issued on Thursday, March 26, 2020.
“All natives of Kwahu who currently live outside Kwahu, should endeavour to continue to stay wherever they may be, in the weeks to come and postpone all planned visit to Kwahu until further notice,” the statement said.
It said the decision is in line with directives by President Akufo–Addo to control and eradicate the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.
Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong also asked all residents to remain in Kwahu, “No travelling outside of Kwahu until the pandemic is contained.”.
