Don’t pay cemetery wardens for burial space – AMA

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has asked members of the general public not to make any payment to cemetery wardens within the Accra area for burial space.

A press statement released by the head of Public Affairs at the AMA, Nuumo Blafo III, on Tuesday July 4 said: “The attention of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has been drawn to illegal activities of some individuals at public cemeteries within the AMA.

“The AMA is reminding the general public that it is illegal for people who have gone to bury their corpse (dead) to make payments to the cemetery wardens (sextons) for the allocation of burial space.

“All payments concerning the space in the AMA-managed cemeteries for burial are to be paid at the AMA Public Health Department at Adjabeng (adjacent Kingsway building) and not at the cemeteries.”

The statement added: “In addition, all burial permits should have a hologram and receipts of payment made available for verification before burial at the cemeteries.

“Persons who bury their corpses without going through the proper procedure shall be prosecuted and the corpse removed.”
