District Chief Executive in the Kwahu East area, Hon. Isaac Agyapong has hinted of a possible by- law to ban open grazing in Kwahu and its environs.
The DCE describe it as the best solution to the frequent clashes between herdsmen and farmers in Kwahu.
On his facebook post he hinted on what could have been a decision taken by authorities in Kwahu
Economic activities particularly farming were badly affected in parts of Kwahu east as the people lived in constant fear of attacks from gun bearing herdsmen who invaded communities, killed and destroyed property worth billions of cedis.
Efforts to find a permanent solution to the herders-farmers crisis are not yielding the desired results.
The by-law specifically permits grazing of livestock only within ranches and prohibits the movement of animals from one destination to another.
It will also spell out punishment for offenders ranging from imprisonment to payment of fines on conviction by a law court.
