Twin Coconut Trees
Nkubeta is the last village in a line of ten, and it’s lucky enough to be sponsored for latrines and hygiene training by Softwire Ltd, London-based producer of bespoke software systems. This is Softwire’s second sponsored village. They are making a real difference.
Nkubeta tell us that they came to the area from Denkira during the Ashanti Wars. They said that the Queen Mother of Petransa agreed to let them settle and told them to go into the forest and chose their own land. They did this, and came upon two coconut trees that were joined at the top. They decided to settle beside the trees and called their village Nkubeta, or ‘twin coconut trees.’
