Cemetery reclaimed for football field expansion in Takoradi

The Chief and Queenmother of Diabane with the help of the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly are reclaiming part of the town’s cemetery to make room for an expansion of the communities football field.

The exhumation process was supervised by the Assembly’s Environmental Health Department.

Family and relatives have therefore trooped in their numbers to the cemetery in Diabene, a suburb of Kojokrom in the Essikadu-Ketan Constituency to collect the remains of their relatives for reburial.
