A bizarre incident marked this year’s Easter celebrations at Kwahu in the Eastern Region, leaving many merrymakers and celebrants in great shock, after a pretty lady in her mid-twenties openly had sex with a young man in the full glare of merry-makers.
The alleged incident took place on the popular Obomeng high street where many merry-makers on such occasions converge for fun and socialization, around 8.30pm on Saturday, and where Adom FM was having a massive street jam for celebrants.
The young man, in his late twenties, had accosted the lady who was dressed in skimpy knickers and an ‘inviting’ white top with the inscription, “Who can sex with me in public” and challenged her that he was ready to have sex with her in public.
The young man, who looked drunk and was in the company of friends, started undressing.
The lady readily accepted the challenge, also undressed and the two engaged in ‘rollicking’ sex in the open, with onlookers watching the spectacle in great shock.
The lady in question was said to be a prostitute and was later seen chatting up and chasing clients for sex for GH¢10.
Many wondered why morality in modern Ghana had sunk so low, while others expressed the opinion that people around should have arrested and handed them over to the police.
The bizarre incident became the talk of the Easter celebrations.
This year’s Easter celebrations, apart from the open sex incident, were also low-key, with many people being passive celebrants.
Even though the main converging point for celebrants, Obomeng high street, was filled with merry-makers, many Kwahu towns like Atibie, Mpraeso, Obo, Nkwatia, Abetifi and Pepease did not experience the normal vibrancy associated with the Easter celebrations on the Kwahu ridge.
Many attributed the low turn-out to the economic hardships and the ongoing biometric registration exercise.
Many fresh young celebrants drank their heads off and caused a lot of damage to people’s cars as they openly banged on moving vehicles.
Most of the youth were also violent towards others despite the heavy presence of the police to maintain law and order.
The Member of Parliament for the area, Seth Kwame Acheampong, who was in the thick of affairs regarding the celebrations, expressed worry over the uncoordinated events at the celebrations.
“Kwahu Easter has become part of the national calendar and is a major tourist attraction in the country which government can take advantage of and make a lot of money from,” he said.
According to him, the Ministry of Tourism could take advantage of the celebrations and organize music festival and sell their Ghanaian music to the outside world.
“Our roads are very bad, especially the one to the paragliding site at Odwen Anoma and the road leading from Nkawkaw to Atibie,” he said.
