AMA bans drumming and noise-making

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced to residents in its jurisdiction that there will be a ban on drumming and noise-making for a period of one month. This will start from 10th May to 10th June 2021.

For the purpose of peace, security and harmony, the AMA has set the following rules;

1. During the period of the ban, the usual form of worship should be confined to the premises of churches/mosques and noise levels be minimized to the barest limits possible. In addition, all COVID-19 protocols (i.e. washing of hands under running water with soap, the use of hand sanitisers, the wearing of nose masks and physical distancing) should be strictly adhered to.

2. Religious bodies and traditional authorities must show respect for one another and restrain their followers from making derogatory and inflammatory remarks about the beliefs and practices of one another.

3. The positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs are banned. Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during the period.

4. Apart from an identifiable task force that consists of AMA personnel, the Ghana Police Service and Representatives from the Traditional Councils with tags, no other person or group of persons should be seen or found enforcing the abatement of noise in the metropolis.

The annual ban on drumming and noise-making is a practice that precedes the celebration of the Homowo festival in the Ga traditional area and

AMA entreats all indigenes, towns and villages under the jurisdiction of the Ga Traditional Area to operate and comply with them accordingly during this period.
