Irate Youth Attack Queen Mother For Stopping Residents Over Free Range At The Bush


Queen Mother Fights Residents Of Sakumono Village Over Open Defecation


Divisional Queen Mother of Sakumono under the Nungua Traditional Area, Naa Borley Wulu II, has disclosed that she has resorted to using strict measures to fight open defecation in her area.

According to Naa Borley Wulu II, she has taken upon herself to fight actively against residents who engage in open defecation in Sakumono Village.

Naa Borley, who double as a fetish priestess in an interview with Ghanaian Voice said, fighting the menace will be unsuccessful if the security forces fail to actively involve themselves.

While admitting Traditional rulers’ resolve to curb open defecation, the queen mother noted that the fight could be more successful if security forces are involved hence the need to bring them to enforce the law.

“I involved the police because the youth in Sakumono Village have decided not to take anything I say serious. Where they openly defecate is right behind my house making it difficult to sometimes breathe. They’re not just polluting the environment but also destroying it,” Naa Borley said.

Naa Borley added that, a toilet facility has been provided for the community at a fee. She said, even though a latrine has been provided, the youth refuse to use it.

Speaking to some residents at Sakumono Village, they are alleging that her bodyguards in the last few days have been terrorizing residents who use a parcel of land close by as a place of convenience because there is no toilet to visit when nature calls.

Some Irate youth at Sakumono Village have vowed to confront her and forcefully eject her from the Village after some youths were attacked by her alleged bodyguards.

The residents are asking Wetlands Division of the Forestry Commission to investigate the matter as the priestess’ residence is within the Ramsar site.

The police, however, did not respond immediately as the Baatsona Divisional Command which oversees the area says it will respond on Monday.
