The Chiefs and people of Suame Municipality have lined-up series of programs to mark the 5th Anniversary of the installation of Nana Dr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, and Nana Mrs. Irene Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu as Sompahene and Sompahemaa of Suame Municipality respectively.
After 21years of dedicated service to the people of Suame Constituency as Member of Parliament and having spearheaded the development of the area from a town council through Sub-metro to one of the most vibrant Municipal Assemblies in the Ashanti Region, it came as no surprise when the chiefs bestowed such an honour on him.
The anniversary was also in honour Mrs Irene Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu who is the Sompahemaa of Suame Municipality. Mrs. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu is Founder of the Sompahemaa Foundation. It is said ‘behind every successful man is a hardworking woman’.
To the people, not only has Mrs. Irene Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu sacrificed her leisure on the altar of service to the nation by her husband, she has also, through the Sompahemaa Foundation, contributed tremendously to the welfare of the aged, the poor and vulnerable in society, particularly those within the Suame Municipality.
The couple, Nana Dr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and Nana Mrs. Irene Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu were later in the day hosted to a Grand Durbar at Bremang in the Suame Municipality.
The Durbar which was well attended by a large crowd from the municipality had the Municipal Chief Executive of Suame, the Suame Divisional Police Commander, the Managing Director of Nana Kwadwo Gyasi Company limited, Assembly Members, Unit Committee Member, and the 2021 Winner of the Ghana’s Most Beautiful lady.
Earlier at the Makro M/A JHS Park the couple performed the opening ceremony to mark the beginning of a month-long sporting activities as part of the Anniversary.
