The chiefs and people of Denkyemuoso in the Atwima-Kwanwoma District has hosted a group German citizens from the city of Murnau, near Munich in Bavaria in their community.

The effort was to highlight the fraternal relations between the two communities and promote cultural exchange and development amongst them.

The group led by Mr Albert Osei-Wusu, a Ghanaian based in Germany, also visited the Denkyemuoso community to deepen the existing partnership and share in the traditions of the people.

At a durbar to welcome them, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II, Atwimahene, deliberated on the history and culture of the Atwima people saying the name of the town means bringing the people, who are fighters from Denkyira, together for development.

He said a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) would soon be signed between the community and the group at Murnau in July to formalize the relationship.

Nana Brempong urged parents to take keen interest in the education of their children and be concerned about their welfare.

He also urged the youth in the area to take advantage of the educational and cultural exchange programs that would be implemented under the partnership, to climb higher in education and improve on themselves.

Madam Barbara Kroner, Chief Executive of the Barbara Kroner Schokoladen Manufaktur, a 200-year-old chocolate manufacturing company in Murnau, said the partnership would afford the people of the two communities the opportunity to learn the cultures and traditions of each other and exchange ideas to ensure a good sisterly relationship.

She said the group had earlier on visited the Yayra Glover Limited, a company that uses organic fertilizer to plant and produce cocoa at Suhum in the Eastern Region.

Madam Kroner said her company would partner and support farmers in the country to develop their own organic fertilizer and apply them on their cocoa farms.

The company is also planning to purchase cocoa directly from Ghana to use for the production of quality chocolate in Murnau.

Madam Torinta Wolfart, who is also known as Nana Akua Kyere II, Nkosuohemaa of Atwima, said she was beginning a project to teach Ghanaian children the German language.

Madam Wolfart, who is also an artist and English teacher in Germany, said it is important to teach the young ones, our future leaders, different languages to make them competitive on the job market.

She said she would continue with her efforts at the German/Ghanaian School at Denkyemuoso to help the children realize their potentials, build their confidence and be more assertive in their endeavours.
