Swedruman Traditional fines family for lavish funeral

By GNA

The Swedruman Traditional Council in the Central Region reminding citizens that the ban on extravagant funerals was still in force, fined a family that flouted the rule, last week, some GH¢200.00.

The Council also reminded citizens that the ban on long funeral corteges through its principal streets with loud music and sirens remained in force.

Nana Asiedu Kobina Botwe II, Chief of Swedru, who announced this at the Council’s weekly meeting, on Thursday, warned that any person who would flout these bye-laws would be severely dealt with.

He said the reminder followed the outrageous behaviour displayed by some celebrants last Friday, adding that the representatives of the bereaved family that were summoned before the Council would additionally pay three bottles of schnapps and a sheep.

The Chief of Swedru said the Council would also punish the young men those young men in that funeral who paraded the streets in speeding and horn-tooting vehicles and those drove around playing loud music.

“The Council would also not entertain the practice of bereaved families organising large out-door parties with loud music and expensive foods for fixing the dates of funerals and burials for their loved ones,” he stressed.

He said stiffer punishments would be imposed on future offers and urged heads of families in the Agona Swedru Municipality to cooperate to save the excesses incurred on funerals and to maintain peace and order at all times.
