Kpedze- Sreme celebrates Yam festival

The mid-day downpour, followed by an exceptionally high temperature did little to disrupt the event, which was held under the theme: ‘Promoting unity through development.

More than GH¢ 11, 600 was realized during an appeal for funds in aid of a project to provide the community tap water.

The Dufia of Kpedze-Sreme, Togbe Kelley IX, said the self-help spirit of the people was still very high.

Last year, for instance, he said proceeds from the festival were used to provide a 20-seater water closet facility at Anoe.

Prior to that, Togbe Kelley said the street lights and a bungalow at the local polyclinic were made possible with similar funds.

He said lack of tap water in the community was a paradox because there were several water bodies nearby.

The Dufia of Kpedze-Sreme entreated the people to remain united all the time for greater development projects to take place smoothly in the area.

Touching on the forthcoming elections, Togbe Kelley cautioned the youth not to allow any selfish politician to use them as vessels of violence.
