Activities at Kumasi to bounce back after Asantehemaa’s burial

Activities  within the Kumasi metropolis are expected to bounce back  today, following the burial of the late queen mother, Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem ( the second).

The late queen mother was  finally laid to rest yesterday, in line with the customs and traditions of the Ashanti Kingdom.

The final funeral rites which begun last Monday, disrupted both commercial and academic work, but the situation is expected to turnaround beginning today.

Yesterday, the Kumasi Metropolis was virtually a ghost town as commercial activity was barred from 8pm until 4 am today.

Transport operators who ply the Accra Kumasi route recorded low patronage at the various stations in Accra due to the the ban on trading activities by the Asantehene.

With the funeral rites now over, it is anticipated that things will return to normalcy.
