Event Details

“AGADEVI” marks a major landslide that occurred on 15th June 1933 on a section of the Akwapim-Togo Range at the foot of which Have is situated. “AGADEVI”, meaning: “the mountain broke into fragments”, is the term used by the people of Have to describe this wonderful and frightful phenomenon.
The people of Have have since then been celebrating the event as thanksgiving to the Almighty God and also to honour Him for His saving grace, deliverance and protection from an imminent annihilation. It's a week long celebration full of rich cultural display and interesting events.
