Newly confirmed DCE for Guan District, Marlon Anipa is dead
The first appointed District Chief Executive (DCE) for the newly created Guan District in the Oti Region, Marlon Anipa, has died.
Mr. Anipa passed away at the Hohoe Municipal Hospital after taking ill in the late hours of Monday, November 15, 2021.
He was a Parliamentary Candidate for the Hohoe Constituency in the 2016 general election but was unsuccessful.
He was later appointed DCE for the newly created Guan District a few weeks ago. He received a unanimous endorsement of all 19 members of the Guan District Assembly.
The Guan District is made up of the Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi, and Likpe communities which were carved out of the Hohoe Municipality and Constituency to form part of the newly created Oti Region in 2018.
The area also known as the SALL enclave has been left without a representative in parliament. The creation of the Guan district and the appointment of one of their own thus came as a respite to the people.
