In order to do this, his nonprofit Kabaka Foundation believed the creation of the court complex was essential.

“providing a fair and effective justice system, we can reassure investors and visitors that Kwahu is a safe and security place to live and do business, but improving security is not just about building new institutions, it is also a out fostering a sense of oneness, peace and unity within our community” the Chief told Afia Pokuah.
