Member of Parliament for Abirem constituency, John Frimpong Osei brought laughter to Parliament when he rose up to ask the Energy Minister a question about the connection of some communities in his constituency to the national grid.
While his question was not exactly funny, the rather sexually suggestive names of the towns he mentioned were.
The names, including “Kote Ye Aboa,” and “Etwe nim Nyansa” got many Parliamentarians familiar with the twi language burst into laughter as the names connote sexual innuendos upon literal translation.
While “kote ye aboa” literally means the penis is wile, “etwe nim nyansa” literally means the vagina is wise.
According to an old lady; a resident who spoke to Peace news, said the communities were named by three men [Nana Akrofisa, Kofisa Ampong and Kwadwo Gyinaye] based on a treatment meted out to one of them.
“History has it that Nana Akrofisa went to marry. The family of the lady told him that if the lady gets wealth, she is supposed to bring it home; if she incurs any debt whatsoever, he will be responsible for settling the debts. The lady upon moving to the man’s house stole somebody’s cocoyam. She was slapped with a fine but her family said her action was as a result of failure on the part of the man to take care of her so the man should pay the fine”
