FROM FRANCIS XAH, ZIAVI-DZOGBE
HE chiefs and the people of the Ziavi Traditional Area, in the Ho Municipality, have celebrated their annual DUTUTU DOZA(Development festival) in pomp and pageantry.
A retinue of chiefs, dressed in their resplendent regalia, trooped to the durbar ground, with drumming and dancing.
The paramount chief of the Ziavi Traditional Area, Togbe Kwaku Ayim IV in an address, warned the youth against bush burning, stealing and dodging communal labour, stressing that, such acts would be met with severe sanctions.
He has also cautioned that Ziavi citizens outside the town, who refused to contribute their quota towards the development of the town, would not be permitted to be buried in the town if they died.
Togbe Ayim IV urged parents to send their children to school because that is the only way to secure a brighter future for them.
Dr. Kofi Debrah, National chairman of the Ziavi Community Development Association (ZICODA) in an address, said membership drive for citizens home and abroad, would be intensified.
He lamented that, out of total membership of 250 people in ZICODA, only 50 are of good standing, by paying their dues regularly.
Dr. Debrah later presented three computers and their accessories, totaling GH¢2,050 to Togbe Ayim IV towards the accelerated ICT education at Ziavi traditional Area.
Dr. Gameli Norgbe, chairman of the education committee, deplored the low standard of education among the youth and promised that, everything possible would be done to raise the standards.
