3rd Day… A 5 Day Journey To BECE Part 3
Abura Dunkwa is the capital town of Abura – Asebu – Kwamankese district, one of the less privileged districts in the country, located in the southern part of Ghana. Mapped to be found in Central Region, the town is situated on the Yamoronsa – Assin Fosu road or Cape Coast –Kumasi road. The main occupation of the people is Orange and Cocoa production.
My BECE Candidates and I precisely settled in a suburb of Abura Dunkwa known in our local dialect as Twa Nsu Kada which is translated in English as ‘’Cross the river and rest or sleep’’. Twa Nsu Kada is a farming community mainly into cocoa. One will see sheds covered with cocoa seed to dry in almost all the homes in the village.
The community which has an estimate of 500 people lack certain infrastructure and social amenities. There is no potable water for cooking or drinking, very bad roads, no toilet facility and most buildings are made from clay and others.
Today, on the 3rd day, the candidates wrote only one paper, ICT, which ended at 1100 GMT. So we took the rest of the day to tour and observe certain historic places in the community and Abura Dunkwa Township.
We visited the famous grounds of the mysterious Asebu Amanfi, a farmer and a hunter.
History made us understand that he was a giant, when he shaved his hair, it can be put together to form a pillow. A lot more to his existence, ekowsimpson.com will make it a point to bring you all the story.
These are the photos we took from the day 3.
