They were financed by a Kumasi-based transport operator, Mr Amponsah Marfo, who is a native of the town.
Mr Marfo, popularly called “Agya Ewiase,” constructed a multi-purpose community centre and provided the local Pentecost Church, and Methodist Church with musical instruments. He also provided three modern stand-pipes for the town.
Mr Marfo has also procured four motorbikes for the Mampong Divisional Police, tarred the two-kilometre principal street of the town and also provided the local health centre with an ambulance.
The total cost of the facilities is Ghc2 million.
They were inaugurated by Daasebre Osei Bonsu II, the Mamponghene, on behalf of the Asantehene at a colourful ceremony attended by the chiefs and people from the municipality and other areas.
The Asantehene commended Mr Marfo for demonstrating a spirit of communalism which needed to be emulated by all.
He stressed that it was time the people saw the development of their community as a priority.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II also commended Mr Marfo for the honour done the traditional area.
In appreciation of Mr Marfo’s pragmatic efforts, Daasebre Osei Bonsu installed him as the “Sompahene” (Serviceable Chief) in the traditional area.
The Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye, on behalf of the Inspector General of Police, thanked Mr Marfo for his continued support for the police.
DCOP Boakye recalled that when the police appealed to Mr Marfo to assist them to put up a police post at Pra-River junction and Bireku to check the incessant attacks on vehicles and robbery in that area, he enthusiastically sponsored the project.
Mr Marfo noted that what he had achieved was as a result of the help of the Almighty God and therefore it was necessary for him to share what he had got with mankind.
He noted that he had been visiting several widowers and widows as well as the aged and assisting them to meet their basic needs.
