She called it a historic city with buried treasures just dying to be utilised!

She wrote: A contemporary of Paa Grant, businessman extraordinaire who imported Scottish and Italian artisans to build his dream home 100 years ago!!

It’s also called ‘hwe ma npori’ to wit be careful not to stumble if you stare ‘ a truly imposing structure and I stumbled and fell after staring at it!! Just imagine the sight of this building among mud huts 100 years ago! Mind blowing. We are the descendants of greatness and have to own and claim our destiny!!.
