In the wake of the number of positive coronavirus cases recorded in the country, the chief and elders of Kwahu have released a press statement declaring a lockdown on all indigenes of the land to stay at wherever they are.
According to the Chiefs, Kwahu has old people residing there and therefore if these natives come from places where they reside, they could cause an outbreak of the Coronavirus which will be an unbearable situation.

The statement indicated that all social gatherings during this period should be halted until further notice.
