Swarm of bees disrupt function

Listen to article

Aflao, Sept 19, GNA - A swarm of bees on Saturday descended on the venue of the durbar for the inauguration of the Aflao branch of the Ghana Hairdressers and Beauticians Association (GHABA) of the Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU) of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) at Aflao, disrupting the function for about half an hour.

Some of the dignitaries and members of the association including the mistresses and the apprentices moved from their seats seeking cover and some repeatedly beat away the poisonous insects with copies of the programme and handkerchiefs.

Many believed the exotic chemicals used in the beautiful and the complex hairdos members wore and the strong perfumes they used might have attracted the bees.
