During the visit, the DCE also took the opportunity to inspect a ruined palace which according to the chieftains was supposed to serve as the traditional palace of the Twenedurase royal house. Speaking to Agoo News, honorable Kofi Ayim Poakwa, assembly member for the area said construction for the bastion, begun in 1981, but due to financial constraints coupled with subtle family disputes, the structure has remained uncompleted and is even considered a death trap by NADMO and some experts. He however said members of the royal family have finally met and settled their differences and that construction and completion of the palace will soon commence.
