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.

The immediate past Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayensuano, Mr Godfred

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

Michael Kofi Mensah, said it was through the efforts of Nana Manya that Ghana

Cement Works constructed a six- classroom block, office and store at Dokrochiwa at

no cost to the community.
