Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene

Today, Tuesday 28 October 2014, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, summoned Kumawu kingmakers (Kontrihene, Akwamuhene, Nifahene and Gyasehene) to his Kumasi Manhyia palace. He issued an ultimatum to them saying, ?You have to sit in state for Dr Yaw Sarfo, Kumawuhemaa?s nominee for the position of Kumawuhene to swear the oath of enthronement (allegiance) to you on Thursday, 30 October 2014. Any of you kingmakers who refuse to attend his scheduled swearing-in should consider themselves destooled outright?

They told him there are two court injunctions placed on them with regard to the Kumawumawu stool dispute. He said, ?What is court injunction? If I am ordering you to do something, how dare you mention of court injunction in front of me. Throw the court injunction away. Proceed with the enthronement as I have instructed. After that, we can talk about any pending court injunction?

Asantehene by virtue of his position feels he can snub the laws of the land with impunity. He has utter disrespect for not only the suffering poor people of Kumawuman, but also, for the laws of the land. Twice, has he got away with influencing judges to twist the law in favour of those he supports. He is flouting an injunction order, an action tantamount to disregard for the laws of the land and natural justice.

When did it become the prerogative of Asantehene to compel the people of Kumawu to accept the candidate of his choice as Kumawuhene? Could my readers please refer to my previously published articles to find out why Asantehene is behaving the way he is doing?

Are the people of Kumawuman going to calmly settle for Otumfuo Osei Tutu II?s order as stringently issued to the elders of Kumawuman?

I shall express my views on Sources radio UK online. Please, check YouTube, under the title, ?Asantehene involves in corruption? to see how in spite of Kumawuhemaa bribing some Kumawuman Kingmakers, Asantehene and his panel of Asanteman chiefs still bullied the kingmakers to accept the Kumawuhemaa?s candidate for Kumawuhene-elect.

Kumawuman people are merely a shadow of their former selves. All the warriors are dead and gone!

From my research work, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been arrogating to himself powers he is traditionally not entitled to, when it comes to issues pertaining to Kumawuman. I will tell it all on Sources radio UK online why he is desperately pushing Kumawu elders around. Trust me, he has absolutely no power to remove any of the Kumawu kingmakers from their stools, for that much my history research tells me.

I rest my story. Written on Tuesday, 28 October 2014.
