People of Osu celebrate Homowo 8/22/2007
Accra, Aug. 21, GNA - Police presence in Osu in Accra, which is divided over a chieftaincy dispute, ensured that the people had a peaceful Homowo celebration.

Nii Nortey Owuo III, Osu Manste, amidst drumming and dancing, sprinkled "Kpokpoi", the traditional food made of corn flour and palm fruit soup, through some streets of Osu.

The Osu Mantse after sprinkling the Kpokpoi on the streets, took another route back to his palace to avert a possible clash by the other faction who had mounted a roadblock to prevent him from passing. After the Osu Mantse passed by the Dowuona Family House, Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI, the Mantse of the other faction, also sprinkled Kpokpoi in front of his palace.

It was fanfare as jubilant subjects danced to welcome him back to the palace without any clash after which chiefs and other dignitaries, including the Mayor of Accra, Stanley Adjiri Blankson graced the occasion.

Osu Stool Secretary, Nii Akwei Nortey had earlier on assured the public of a peaceful Homowo Festival.

"So far as we are concerned there is no dispute in Osu. What are we fighting about?" he asked. "Nothing," he answered. He noted that the dispute about who was Osu Mantse was settled by a Supreme Court ruling on May 17, 2006 in favour of Nii Nortey Owuo III. The Homowo festivities, he said, would be climaxed with a carnival and called on the public to ensure that it was peaceful.Source:
