Ejura has begun the process of healing after the recent seismic events that rocked the town.
The place saw violent confrontation between an angry youth protesting the murder of a social and political commentator, Mohammed Ibrahim alias “Kaaka”, and soldiers sent in to make sure that there was law and order.
Two protesters were shot and killed while others got injured.
The incident led to the setting up of a committee to investigate what happened and make recommendations.
The committee has since completed its assignment and submitted its report to the government.
The traditional rulers would not wait for a white paper to be issued on the report and are using the annual “Sekyerene Festival” to heal the wounds and help everybody to accept to live in peace and harmony.
Nana Osei Ansebie, the Nifahene, at the media launch of the festival said, there could not be progress in the midst of chaos - in an environment where the people distrusted, hated and were suspicious of one another.
That was why “peaceful co-existence” had been made the central theme of this year’s festival.
'Kaaka's' death triggered the violent confrontations that led to the killing of two others.
Kennedy Agyapong reacting to the Ejura incident, condemned the Journalist who first broke the news about 'Kaaka's' death, Erastus Asare Donkor of Love FM.
