Burial took place at Dokrochiwa of Nana Akyea Manya,
Chief of Dokrochiwa at the weekend.
Nana Manya was the President of the Council of Chiefs in the Coaltar Traditional
Area and a government appointee to the Suhum Kraboa Coaltar District Assembly.
Nana Manya, 70, ruled for 25 years.
In a tribute, the newly installed chief of Dokrochiwa, Nana Anom II, who is the
acting President of the Council of Chiefs in the Coaltar Traditional Area, said the late
chief was a devoted and hardworking man.
He said it was through his efforts that Dokrochiwa had electricity and he helped to
establish a number of schools in addition to building one of the biggest commercial
markets in the Suhum Kraboa Coaltar district.
He said Nana Manya contributed in many diverse ways to developing Dokrochiwa,
adding that, most of the streets in the town were constructed from his own resources.

Okyere, said Nana Manya who was a trained agriculturist both in Ghana and America
introduced modern farming at Dokrochiwa and its surrounding areas.
The former District Chief Executive for Suhum Kraboa Coaltar District, Mr

Cement Works constructed a six- classroom block, office and store at Dokrochiwa at
no cost to the community.
