Mother’s Day, which was marked on May 13 this year was an unforgettable experience for Madam Imoro Muniratu (Auntie Muni) whose name is synonymous with Waakye in the entire Greater Accra region and beyond.

Using her business, Auntie Muni has been able to support multiple people both family and friends through direct employment, education and entrepreneurship.

She has contributed to the education of about 15 children through to the Universities such as Ashesi, KNUST, University of Development Studies, and University Of Ghana, Legon. Her beneficiaries are now bankers, IT professionals and entrepreneurs.


Held at the Event Haven at the Trade Fair, La, the fourth edition of the Superwoman Awards is an initiative by Jandel Limited to celebrate and recognise outstanding women who have made an impact on society.

This year’s awardees were Theresa Ayoade, Nana Oye Lithur, Madam Joyce Aryee, Nana Aba Anamoah and Madam Imoro Muniratu (Auntie Muni Waakye).

The Chief Executive Officer of Jandel Limited, Ms Afi Amoro, said “our awardees are chosen by a panel who evaluates their achievements both privately and socially, their impact on the society, their contribution to the development of the Ghanaian economy and the nation at large.”

She added that the pivotal role of being a mother is still the divine mission assigned to women alone. “They are not inferior to men and are capable of sharing all the responsibilities of life. This is why we love to celebrate those imparting greatly to our society.”
