Nii Laryea Faamlite II, the chief of Gbawe has died, the Gbawe Kwatei family has confirmed. He died aged 72.

He passed on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, the Gbawe Kwatei family announced in a press conference on Thursday, November 5, 2020.

Nii Laryea Faamlite II, according to family records, was enstooled as chief of Gbawe in 1994 and is the 7th Chief of the Gbawe lands.

Secretary of the Gbawe Kwatei family, Solomon Nii Afutu Quartey, told newsmen that in line with customs, red flags will be erected in the principal streets of Gbawe.

According to Nii Afutu, a book of condolence has been opened for mourners and sympathisers.

He added that burial and final funeral rites will be announced at a later date.

The first chief recorded in the history of Gbawe was Nii Gogo (proper title Nii Kpakpa Osiakwan I). After him was Nii Laryea Faamlitɛ I. He was followed by Nii Gbawe Kwatei I, Nii Kwatelai Mensefio GoGo I, Nii Boi Kojo I, Nii Kpakpa Osiakwan II and Nii Laryea Faamite II.

The court bears a banner on the Kwartei family that says “Gbɔbilɔbi sheee komli gbeyei”, and the slogan they love to use is: “Gbawe Kotoko! Yɛnsuro oja!”

The Gbawe chief comes from the Kwartei family, and is closely related to the Lampteys and Abbeys. They are from Asere predominantly. The chief holds court daily from 9 a.m. to listen to cases pertaining to the indigenes, residents, and land/royalty. He can also be called upon in case of emergency at any time of day or night if very urgent.

The Gbawe Kwatei Family called on all corporate entities and individuals to come extend a support in any way possible to ensure a befitting burial of the late chief.
