GH@60: Kayayei join independence parade


For the first time in Kumasi, itinerant head porters, popularly called ‘kayayei’, turned up to participate in the 60th Independence Day celebrations in the Ashanti regional capital.

The female porters mesmerised the parade when they came in with their pans on their heads.

According to their leader, Adiza Zongo Pioneer, their appearance was a way of thanking the Akufo-Addo-led administration after it announced the scrapping of levies paid by kayayei in the 2017 budget read on Thursday March 2.

She is optimistic that the NPP government was committed to helping them in their activities.
