When others thinks about curses, all they think about is just one person been cursed. Yes, the curse of one person can destroy over ten people and that is what happened to the Bretuo family of Nsuta. Nsuta is a town within the Ashanti and it is the capital of Sekyere Central district. It is made up of over 30,000 people. Nsuta lies on the Kumasi to Sunyani highway or the Kumasi to Bechem road. 

When Alfred died, a lot of his family members followed him right after his burial and the family never understood until a spiritualist told them the cause. It was a curse but it wasn’t a direct curse as the family described it. Reporting from the family’s head “abusuapanin”, his exact words were put in to contest as he was the main one to give us the story. Nana Acheampong is almost 90 years and he is still healthy and kicking. He attributes his longer life to truth speaking and doing what is right when Ato Kwamena of Kesben media spoke to him.

If they did listened to me, they wouldn’t have died said Nana Acheampong, the Bretuo Abusuapanin of Nsuta in the Sekyere Central District of the Ashanti. Alfred was believed to have been murdered by the wife but the wife Mercy Danso didn’t have any hands in his death and as a result, inflicted pains on the bretuo family with her cries. The cries of a widow is very powerful said Nana Acheampong. Alfred Danso widely identified in Bechem as Ntriboa was a high grade cocoa farmer who met Mercy, a trained teacher and they both decided to end up together in holy matrimony. 

Alfred was a farmer with several acres whiles Mercy was an educated and trained government teacher from St. Monica’s training college in Kumasi. Mercy was posted to serve her training to the nation and he met the rich cocoa farmer Alfred. Alfred on his way, to one of his farms fell and that was it. He couldn’t wake up again and he died in February. The Bretuo family which Nana Acheampong is the head went for the body and they came to prepare it for burial.

Alfred’s wife Mercy prepared herself to come to Nsuta and bury her late husband but she was met with pure hatred which Nana Acheampong said he never knew. As tradition demands, the body was taken from the morgue on Friday evening, and per the Ashanti’s customs, a wife is supposed to showcase the bathing equipment of her late husband. As the wife and her people brought their items to be used to bath Alfred and prepare him for laying in state, it was there that the sisters of Alfred thinking about the cocoa farm their brother will place in the care of the trained teacher and if, they don’t act smart, they will get nothing from their brothers inheritance. 

The sisters of Alfred together with their cousins and nieces and nephews, staged the funeral which was to showcase the wife’s bathing equipment to her late husband. They mercilessly beat and whipped the widow Mercy and her people for murdering her husband and pretending is ok. Mercy and her people couldn’t showcase the things and run away to the house they were lodging for the burial. The angry sisters also went there with their group carrying petrol and kerosine instructing the owner of the house who was Mercy’s class mate to either sack Mercy and her people from the house or the group will burn down the house. 

Mercy and her people, moved from the house and the Nsuta township that very faithful Friday evening and went back to their town Bechem without burying her husband. The group went spreading rumors that Mercy didn’t come to the funeral after murdering her husband. The whole town bared witness to this on 8 October. The family buried and did everything for Alfred without the presence of his legally wedded wife. As custom demands, a wife who didn’t bury her husband, cannot hold on to his properties so Mercy was forced to give the cocoa farms back to the sisters when they went for it. 

Mercy cried as to the disgrace the Bretuo family of her late husband gave her. She secretly went to the grave of her husband and cried and cried for the spirit of her husband to save her from humiliation as she has been linked to his death. According to the fetish priest of River Tano who saw the curse, the spirit of Alfred was angered by his wife’s cries and in retaliation called for everyone who had hands in the dehumanizing of the wife on the day of wake keeping, after the burial and during the collection of the cocoa farms from the wife.

Speaking on air to Ato Kwamena of Kesben FM, Nana Acheampong said, Within seven days, from 12 November to 19 November , several members of the family died simultaneously. All the seven sisters of Alfred together with their two brothers and the cousins and nephews all died from the Bretuo family. Those who were not connected to the family but took part in the process, also went sick but they all survived because Alfred couldn’t call them since he had no spiritual connection to their various families. 

By the time the family came to realize it was the sins the sisters of Alfred did that they are paying for, 18 people had already died. Nana Acheampong said they spent over GH¢9,000 before they were able to control the curse. Through the Tano god, they asked for forgiveness from Alfred and they sent a delegation to the wife to ask for forgiveness and in return, had to give back every property Alfred left for her but the wife rejected the properties. That meant others will die because that was what angered the spirit of Alfred the most. Taking the properties, the cocoa farms he left for his wife and children. Mercy was instructed by the Tano god to speak to the grave of her husband and tell him to calm down until the family became free from death. Mercy is scheduled to appear on air next week Monday to speak on what exactly went down on the funeral, and how it affected her life in general.
