Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central constituency has dared the Regional House of Chiefs and people of the Central Region to privatize Cape Coast and Elmina Castle by selling it to him, OccupyGh.com reports.

The lawmaker who said he plans to stay off politics and venture into tourism complained that the enviable Castles in the region have been rotten away due to lack of proper tourism promotion.

The Controversial business mogul suggested that the two Castles need to be given facelift in order to attract foreigners, saying the slaves’ dungeon route leading to the sea needs massive expansion.

In an interview with Net2 TV monitored, Kennedy explained that if the Castles are sold to him, he will build a big ship on the sea with accompanying services such as restaurants which will transport tourists to their chosen destinations.

He indicated that he will invest massively in the two Castles if given the opportunity adding that pictures of the tunnel leading to the sea will be taken to serve as reference when it’s expanded.

‘I’m challenging the Regional House of Chiefs, people of central region and CEDECOM to sell to me both Cape Coast and Elmina Castles on just one condition, we will take pictures of the tunnel leading to the sea and then we will open up that tunnel for people to walk through it, we will put a ship or build a big restaurant on the sea, its simple, you write point of no return,’ he explained in an interview with Net2 TV.

He further opined that a play should be enacted about the slaves for tourists when they visit the Castles with charges ranging from 100 dollars upwards explaining that the era of people explaining the conditions in which the slaves were sold is over.

‘The tickets will include the play and the restaurant services, you can charge about 100 dollars, that is how you are going to make money,’ he said.

The two castles were used as trading points where slaves were kept before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas.
