Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation together with USAIDS have pledged to help stem COVID-19 spread in the Ahafo Region.

This was revealed when the executives of the two bodies paid a courtesy call on the chiefs and Assembly members of Kenyasi No.1 to discuss the best way to fight against the disease, which has currently infected 36 persons in the Asutifi North District where Kenyasi is.

A member of the team, Nana Dabo Agyekum disclosed that the Asantehene and Founder of Foundation, has decided to assist all communities within his kingdom to curb the spread of Covid-19.

According to him, the outcome of their deliberations with the chiefs and Assembly members would be forwarded to the Otumfour Osei Tutu II to determine when  and how to reach the entire community.

He stated that his team is extremely overwhelmed by the facts and figures the chiefs and Assembly members shared at the meeting on the disease, showing clearly that with a little push, the spread of coronavirus in Kenyasi can be halted.

Nana Dabo Agyekum commended them for their effort so far and admonished them to continue with the sensitization to keep residents free from COVID-19, which has already infected 116 persons in Ahafo Region, a situation that worries Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Some of the chiefs and Assembly members also thanked Asantehene for his initiative, which is a booster to the community’s effort in the COVID-19 fight.

According to them, the only challenge they have is the lack of enforcement of the COVID-19 directives.

They explained, chiefs, Assembly members and private organizations have distributed loads of face mask to the residents but most of them do not wear the face masks and that is very worrying.

“Soon the police will team up with a regional taskforce to enforce the directives and ensure compliance,” they said.

The chiefs also appealed to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to extend the initiative to other parts of the region.
