The Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun has stated he doesn’t buy the idea by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to build mortuaries for use in Zongo Communities across the country.
Speaking on Okay FM, he noted that the opposition NDC could have suggested something better like One Zongo One Makaranta instead of morgues.
“How do you build mortuaries for Zongos, how? How? Even the name mortuary itself is bad, what is kept at mortuaries? We don’t learn there, it is dead bodies that are kept there…because our prophet has entreated us to read if they had promised One Zongo One Makaranta that would have been better,” he said.
“If they had promised One Zongo One Funeral House that would have been better. But the name mortuary is it good? Is it good if someone says he will build a mortuary for you? He wishes you death and he is insulting you on top of that,” the Imam stated
