Kumawu chiefs in the Ashanti Region have called on the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to leave a lasting legacy in the area before leaving power. The chiefs lamented that most of the developmental projects such as power, water, and roads were done by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) governments, despite the people of Kumawu consistently voting for the NPP.

During a visit by the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta, the Worasohene, Acheamfour Adu Acheampong, cautioned the minister not to start the road projects only to abandon them after the by-election. The Kumawu Kyidomhene, Nana Akwasi Agyekeumhene, expressed similar sentiments and emphasized that Kumawu had been taken for granted for too long.

The Minister for Roads and Highways assured the people that the project was not a campaign gimmick, but rather a project that had already been planned. The project includes the rehabilitation of the Kumawu-Woraso and Kumawu-Effiduase-Juaben roads, as well as a five-kilometer town road asphaltic inlay. The Omanhene for Kumawu, Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, confirmed that the late MP had informed the people of Kumawu that the roads would be rehabilitated, and the contractors are set to move to the site by the second week of April 2023.

Kumawu is facing a major challenge with its bad roads, which is hampering investment and development in the area. The Kumawu by-election has been set for May 23, 2023, by the Electoral Commission (EC) to elect a new Member of Parliament following the death of the sitting MP, Mr. Basoah. The people of Kumawu are calling on the NPP to make good on their promises and leave a legacy of development that they can be proud of.
