Bui- Ancestral Graves Dug Up By New Hydro

Bui damSome residents in the Bui enclave where a new hydro dam has been constructed have said that they feel unnerved by the flooding of their ancestral graves.

Communities around the gorge had to be relocated alongside their ancestral deities and grave, to pave way for the construction of the dam. The exercise was done by the Bui Power Authority with the help of the Archeology department of the University of Ghana.

However, not all bodies buried at the site were exhumed for reburial. A native of the area called the XYZ Breakfast Show this morning and expressed grave concerns about what he described as selective exhumation of bodies.
