Ketu South Municipality serves as the eastern international gateway to the Republic of Ghana. The Municipality is unique in the sense that its Capital Aflao/Denu shares direct boundary with Lome, the Capital of the Republic of Togo. Thus, it serves as a pronounced ground border crossing in West Africa. The Ketu South Municipality was formerly created by an Act of Parliament in 2007 through the Legislative Instrument (LI) 1897 of 2007 which split Ketu into Ketu North and Ketu South. In 2012, Ketu South Municipality was elevated to a Municipal status through LI 2155 of 2012. The Ketu South Municipal Assembly is the highest administrative and planning authority in the Municipality with a law and policy making body made up of 57 Assembly Members.
