By on

HomowoFestivalGhana1-580x330The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced that this year’s ban on drumming and noisemaking commences from Monday 8 May to Thursday 8 June, ahead of the annual Homowo festival.

The AMA has advised that during the period of the ban, the usual form of worship should be confined to the premises of churches/mosques and noise levels be minimised to the barest limits possible.

The AMA has also asked religious bodies and traditional authorities to show respect for one another and restrain their followers from making derogatory and inflammatory remarks about the beliefs and practices of one another.

The ban also affects loud speakers outside the premises of churches, mosques, and pubs. “Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during this period,” a statement signed by the head of public affairs of the AMA, Numo Blafo III, said.

The statement added: “Apart from an identifiable task force which consists of AMA personnel, the Police Service and representative from the traditional councils with tags, no other person or group of persons should be seen or found enforcing the abatement of noise in the metropolis.”
