The township of Agona Kwanyako, in the Agona East District of the Central region was thrown into a state of mourning, following the drowning of three second-year students of Agona Kwanyako Anglican Junior High School (JHS).

The deceased are Matilda Amatayo,16; Hannah Mensah, 18; and Rahael Awudzie, 17.

According to the bereaved parents and the Headteacher of the School, Nii Okain, his teachers asked the students, including the girls to bring bamboos to school on Monday.

The bamboos were to be used to make leisure seats at the school.

The bodies have not been found by over 20 divers made up of members of the Asafo Company of Agona Kwanyako and others since last Saturday when the news broke.

District Chief Executive (DCE) of Agona East, Dennis Armah-Frempong, and his delegation had earlier visited the Chiefs, Asafo Companies, bereaved families and teachers of Anglican JHS to discuss ways and means to recover the bodies from the river.

The DCE and his team on Sunday morning again joined the search party, chiefs, the bereaved families, some residents and teachers to search for the bodies of the three girls.

Nana Adeiso, Nifahene of Agona Kwanyako told the DCE and his delegation that five girls and a boy on Saturday, went to the river banks to cut the bamboos, but two girls and the boy escaped unhurt.

Kwame Mensah, the father of Hannah Mensah, one of the deceased, said he told his daughter not to go and cut the bamboo but rather wash his clothes for him, but the girl ignored his instruction.

Comfort Assani, the mother of Amatayo, deceased, said she instructed her daughter not to go to the banks of River Ayensu to cut the bamboo, but the girl indicated that she would be punished on Monday by the teachers.

Mrs. Assani said she told her daughter that on Monday she herself will accompany her to school to plead with the teachers and explain why she did not bring the bamboo to school, but her daughter refused to heed the advice.

The parents have appealed to the Ministry of Education and the Director- General of the Ghana Education Service to intervene to stop teachers and especially head of basic schools from forcing school children to bring bamboos, stones, fire woods, brooms and others to curb disasters.

The bodies have still not been found.

My son’s marriage collapsed ,I am glad -Maame Dokono

Grace Omaboe, popularly known as Maame Dokono.One of her sons married a woman from Trinidad & Tobago and he decided to break up the marriage .His reasons have not yet being disclosed yet,but Maame Dokono His mother was actually glad it happened.
Even though she didn’t openly say she supports divorce, she walked on air when the two gave up on their marriage, and her reason is that she wanted a Ghanaian wife for her son.

“We were all in London for the wedding but after some time it broke up and then I said well I am happy that it has broken down,” she said last week Wednesday while reacting to a News-One question during a press screening of her upcoming film, ‘My Very Ghanaian Wedding’.

She said she had a beautiful Ghanaian doctor for the son who lives in New York.

However, he didn’t accept her choice and won’t succumb to the usual trend in Maame Dokono’s family, where she and her husband always select spouses for their children.

Maame Dokono was speaking about her son’s marriage in public because her family story is similar to that of her upcoming film which is set for cinema release on October 6.

“I am particularly interested in this film because I find myself in there. I really went for it because I have experienced this situation. My son who lives in New York wanted to marry and usually the father and I will select a Ghanaian woman for all our children but this son said no and he got married to someone from Trinidad & Tobago.


We were all in London for the wedding but after some time it broke down and then I said well I am happy that it has broken down. This time, I am going to give you a Ghanaian medical doctor, a very beautiful girl then he goes for another white girl. A pure white. When I read the script I said ah this is my situation I will do it,” she told a section of
the Ghanaian media but won’t mention the son’s name.

The upcoming film which talks about marriage and Ghanaian culture is directed by Helel Smith. It delves into how culture and traditions play a key role in the society and how it binds people together.

According to Maame Dokono, Ghanaian traditional wedding is more important than the white wedding in the church. She, therefore, encouraged young people never to shy away from traditional marriage, as she emphasized the need to always marry in the presence of one’s family.

Mama Dokono went off local TV screens for some time but she says, “I’m back. Actually I wanted to take a little bit of rest after going through politics. I wanted to hide a little so I visited my children outside and since I came back I have been acting.”
