The mystery ram
THE STRANGE ram which was discovered at the premises of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) on Wednesday morning has been taken to the Manhyia palace, DAILY GUIDE has learnt.
The giant ram, which had a piece of red cloth tied around its neck was initially taken to the premises of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) at about 11:30am.
This was after the strange animal, which sources indicated was dropped off at the mortuary’s premises at about 1:30am by an unidentified person, was found loitering at the place around 5:30am.
The presence of the all-white ram shocked workers and patrons of the mortuary.
The workers were so afraid that none of them was able to go near the gigantic ram which many observers opined that it could have been left there by someone for ritual purposes.
It was not clear why the ram was sent to the official seat of the Asantehene, but it is believed that the animal was sent there because the palace is the home of tradition in the Ashanti kingdom.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that in view of the suggestion that the animal might have been brought to the hospital for ritual purposes, the Manhyia palace will perform the necessary rites to neutralise the rituals behind the ram.
This will ensure that there are no negative consequences in the region.
