Two royal families today, Tuesday, 3 November 2020, clashed over a piece of land earmarked for the construction of a hospital at Ampabame No.2 in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region Class FM report.
One family, Butuakwaa, said the land belongs to them but were not consulted before it was released for the project.
The other family, Mamsen, which gave out the land to the government for the project, rubbished the claim of the rival family.
The two families clashed on the land amidst fisticuffs during a communal labor exercise organized by the community to weed the land for the cutting of sod by the Municipal assembly to start the project.
A member of the Butuakwaa family, Ama Dapaah, told Class News’ regional correspondent Elisha Adarkwah that they are not against development but since they were not consulted, they will not allow the hospital to be constructed on their land.
But the queen mother of the community, Nana Abena Gyamfua Amonu, said the land does not belong to the aggrieved family and will ensure the hospital project takes place.
