Blood for Penkye Otu - The Aboakye Festival in Winneba

Blut für Penkye Otu - Das Aboakyer Festival in Winneba

A long time ago, the Effutu were ousted from the kingdom of Bono. Led by Simpa, a son of their first king, they set out on a search for a new place to settle and founded today's Winneba in Ghana. The new state was named Simpa in honour of their leader. However, they actually owed their survival to patron god Penkye OTU. Every year, the king devoted a feast to the deity, sacrificing a member of his family to him. Today the Aboakye Festival has become a tourist attraction where two rivalling Asafo militia groups of the Effutu engage in a fierce competition.
