A private businessman, Ali Suraj, on Sunday, 26 May 2019 celebrated his 40th birthday cleaning the Tafo cemetery in the Old Tafo municipality of the Ashanti Region.

Mr Suraj and his friends cleared the weeds and rubbish at the cemetery.

Explaining the reason behind his action in an interview with Class News’ regional correspondent Elisha Adarkwah, Mr Suraj said the cemetery will be his final home after his death, and, therefore, found it appropriate to use his 40th birthday to clean the place.

Mr Suraj, who is also the leader of the Ashanti Regional Zongo Youth group, also noted that the cemetery has been a home for his ancestors and, so, cleaning the place and improving its sanitary situation will make them rest peacefully.

"I decided purposely to come here [Tafo cemetery] to mark my 40th birthday. The reason behind it is to clean the environment because our fathers and our mothers are here, and the place is dirty, that's why I decided to use my birthday to clean the environment," he said.

The Tafo cemetery, located in the Old Tafo municipality, is the biggest cemetery in Kumasi and serves almost all the residents in the metropolis and its adjoining districts.
