Mankesim Things to Do: 6 reviews and 6 photos
Situated on both sides of the Ghana Coat-of-Arms is a bongo antelope.
The bongo is a very wild animal and avoids human beings, it attacks only when provoked. It grows an antler every year. One can thus determine its age from the number of antlers it processes. To the Fante people, the bongo is sacred and must therefore not be killed. Its message is that you should not provoke your neighbour but you may retaliate when attacked.
