A Kwahu man invited his friends for his mother’s funeral.
After lowering the coffin, they put yam, rice, meat etc, into the grave.
His Hausa friend asked why. The Kwahu man smiled & said, “According to our tradition, the dead go on a long journey & need all the food items they can get”.
The Hausa friend dropped GH.10,000 cedis inside and said, “When the food finish, buy more”.
His Fante friend also added GH.5,000 cedis and said, add this in case it is not enough.
An Ashanti man who was present at the funeral simply smiled, and said I will also give GH.5,000 cedis. He brought out his cheque book and wrote a cheque of GH.20,000 cedis, dropped it in the coffin and took the GH.15,000 cedis cash as change.
Then he said, “Eno Serwaa! withdraw when you reach Asamando! It is going to be a dangerous journey, we don’t know how many robbers are out there and no one will be there to save you so just manage the cheque”
