A Chinese national by name Sun Qiang has been enstooled the development chief (Nkosuohene) at Kwahu Abetifi in the Eastern region.
The enstoolment ceremony took place on Saturday, September 5, 2020.
A grand durbar was organised at the Kwawu Abetifi Palace to commemorate the special day.
The Chinese national, owing to his enstoolment as the development chief, has been given the Ghanaian name Barima Kofi Ayeboafo as his traditional stool name.
The enstoolment of the Chinese national has, however, received some negative reactions from some Ghanaians with the chiefs and people of Kwahu Abetifi heavily criticised.
On social media, many were angry at the chief of Kwahu Abetifi whilst others couldn’t understand why a Chinese man would be made a chief in Ghana.
