Some prominent people, including sub-chiefs, are accused of intercepting relief supplies intended for flood victims, diverting them home, and misappropriating them. This is in reference to the floods caused by the spillage of the Akosombo and Kpong dams, which have left many people homeless.
The acting chief of Mepe, Rudolph Kwadzo Gli, expressed his reservations prior to the presentation of food and other relief items worth GH20,000 to flood victims in the town last Friday (November 10), by the Avazorli Union, of which Mepe is a member.
As a result, he urged all donor organizations to deliver relief items to the palace of the Mepe Paramount Chief in order to ensure an equitable distribution of the items among the displaced people.
According to reports, the acting supreme chief did not provide any additional information on those who committed the fraudulent acts.
Other Avazorli communities include Ziavi, Kpedze-Todze, Etordome, Botoku, Ando (Ghana and Togo), and Kpando-Anyigbe.
Togbe Kwaku Ayim IV, the Mount Chief of Ziavi, led a delegation of Avazorli chiefs and queens in a touching visit to Mepe to present the items at the palace.
Bags of gari, plantain, maize, corn flour, cassava dough, and a consignment of sachet water, bales of clothes, and an undisclosed amount of money were among the items.
According to reportsHe pleaded with Mepe’s chiefs and queens not to exclude physically challenged people from the distribution of the items.
Togbe Ayim promised that the other Avazorli groups would always be there for their siblings in Mepe, through thick and thin, and would always share their pain in times of adversity.
