Ga Traditional Council bans funerals in Accra from October 15

The Ga Traditional Council has announced a temporary prohibition on funeral ceremonies in the Greater Accra region, which will be enforced from October 15 to October 29, 2023.

This action is in connection with the arrangements being made for the funeral of the deceased Ga Manye, Naa Dedei Omaedru III, who passed away in December 2022.

Ambassador Sylvester Parker Allotey, who serves as the Chief of Protocol at the Office of the Ga Mantse, communicated that the imposition of this ban is a vital measure taken to ensure the smooth conduct of the funeral proceedings for the late Ga Manye.

“From the 15th of October, no funerals will be allowed in the region because we have to observe that two-week period from that 15th to 29th for only the rites leading to the proper farewell for the queen mother. Then there will be no installation of any traditional office holder till after the funeral.

“But in the week of the burial, there will be additional measures which we will put out very soon. The additional measures will include the period where shops and commercial activities will be stopped and also there are certain streets which will be closed,” he said.
