The Acting President
Akuapem Traditional Council
Akropong – Akuapem
20th April, 2019
PETITION TO PROTECT THE DIGNITY AND SANCTITY OF THE AKUAPEM LEGACY BY CALLING ‘AKUAPEM POLOO’ TO ORDER.
I write as a native of Akuapem and the Assemblyman for Awukugua Electoral Area in the Nifa Division of the Akuapem Traditional Area.
Nananom, we (Akuapems) are the most peaceful, respectful and humblest of all Ghanaian ethinc groups. We are the only people even when we want to insult you, we start with an apology. For example for doing something silly or annoying an Akuapem will say “me pa kyew se woye abia” (I am very sorry but you are a fool). Ghanaians refer to us as “Ofie” (Home)
Akuapem is famous for being the home base of Basel Mission that metamorphosed to Presbyterian Church of Ghana, when in 1835 the missionaries led by Andreas Riis arrived in Akropong with his Mulatto friend Lutterodt of Osu and laid the foundation of the Basel Missionary Evangelization upon which “the gospel took root and spread to all parts of the country.”
Also, the reggae icon, Bob marley`s wife, Rita Marley is honorary citizen of Akuapem town, Aburi. She has been living here for ages. She owns her recording studios and other businesses on the Akuapem Mountains due to our location, Vegetation and the Climate.
The legendary priest, Okomfo Anokye’s shrine at Awukugua-Akwapem, our tradition and rich culture display during the Ohum and Odwira festivals has also served as major tourist attraction for the nation.
But Nanamon, in recent times, a quick search of Akuapem on the internet produces unacceptable activities of one Rosemond Brown, who calls herself Akuapem Poloo, whose behaviours and character contradict the legacies of our great grand fathers. The links below are some of her disgraceful behaviours;

It is evidentially clear that the altitude and the fashion trend of this individual does not depict our culture throughout the 17 principal towns and villages of Akuapem.
I am therefore calling on the Akuapem Traditional Council, Members of Parliament, MDCEs and well meaning citizens of Akuapem home and abroad to as a Matter of urgency protect the dignity and sanctity of the legacies of our forefathers by condemning and calling the said Akuapem Poloo to order.
Hon. Kwabi Frank (Dawuro)
