The Agogo Traditional Council has introduced sweeping measures to curb expensive funerals in the traditional area.

Among the measures are a ban on the performance of widowhood rites and the use of beer and other drinks to serve mourners. In addition, special cloths and T-shirts cannot be used at any funeral within the traditional area, while the age-old one-week observance of the passing of a person, which in recent years has seen massive spending by bereaved families and well-wishers, must only be a family gathering from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Council meeting

The reforms were arrived at during a meeting of the traditional council in Agogo in the Ashanti Region last Sunday.

The meeting, which was chaired by the Omanhene of the Agogo Traditional Area, Nana Kwame Akuoko Sarpong, evaluated a month’s piloting of the reforms and arrived at the conclusion that the reforms led to a drastic cut in the cost of funerals and, therefore, were worth scaling it up across the entire traditional area.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the Akyeamehene (Chief Linguist of the Omanhene), Nana Boakye Yiadom, explained that the council reached the conclusion that lavish spending had no place in the performance of funerals, especially in present times.

He said in order not to make the measures an imposition, the public was consulted, in addition to the one-month successful piloting.
