90-year-old man, Paul Kingsley Asamoah is set to be honoured by his community, Kona in the Ashanti Region for inventing the Wooden Spatula locally known as ‘banku ta’ in 1944 and the ceiling brush in 1986.
The organizer of the event, Sylvester Owusu Adjei noted that it’s become necessary to honour Kingsley Asamoah for his invention because it has created employment for people in so many years.
‘’We have to celebrate the living not the dead so they can enjoy their labour’’ he said.
The event will come off on Sunday, August 6, 2020, at 2:00 pm at the Kona social centre in the Ashanti region.
It will be graced by Member of Parliament for the Area, the chief and elders of the community.
The “banku ta” is used to stir banku to give it that fine texture. There are different types of wooden spatulas used in many ways for different purposes.
