Easter is a significant religious festival for Christians worldwide, commemorating the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, in Ghana, the festival has become a divided celebration between Christians and the traditional people of Kwahu in the Eastern Region.
The people of Kwahu celebrate Easter as a traditional festival, attracting people from all walks of life, including those from the diaspora. Their festivities have made the festival very popular in Ghana, and this year’s celebration promises to be a memorable one.
As our cameras capture the atmosphere and euphoria of Kwahu during the festival, long queues and slow vehicular movement are notable. Market women have traveled from long distances to sell their products, expecting to make high sales during the festivities.
The heavy presence of the Ghana Police Service Personnel in the region ensures the safety of lives and property. Friendly-looking policemen are seen in buses and vans, ready to maintain law and order.
Furthermore, this year’s Kwahu Easter celebration includes a health walk by the New Patriotic Party, which will take place on Saturday, April 8, 2023
