Ghanaians with a bit of interest in, or concern about, chieftaincy affairs, will recall that Kumawu Traditional Council area has been without a paramount chief since the demise of the late Barimah Asumadu Sakyi II in June 2007. They may also have noted the reasons why Kumawuman, a cardinal founding member of the Asante Kingdom, is without a paramount chief for almost the past five years.


It is on record, according as vaingloriously asserted by Kumawuhemaa herself, that she has carnal knowledge of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene. I have copiously divulged in my previous write-ups how Asantehene stands to benefit from the Kumawu chieftaincy impasse. It is obvious that he is enjoying free sex. Additionally, he is availing himself of free farmlands and other windfall profits, although dubiously.


Asantehene is in collusion with Nana Akuoko Sarpong (Agogohene),  Kwamanghene, Kumawuhemaa and Kumawu Krontihene to sell a huge portion of Kumawuman lands in the Afram Plains to some South African company. As I write, he has tasked a land surveyor to measure the Kumawuman land situated in the Afram Plains. The surveyor is half-way through the task and has a few more months to go according as established by an observer who doubles as a secret investigator.


Asantehene is trying to play clever without knowing John Fosu is much smarter than he is. He is claiming that the land belongs to the three Amanhene, thus, Kumawuhene, Kwamanghene and Agogohene. Therefore, in the absence of Kumawuhene, he is the sole authority to order the surveying of the land to enable him divide it among the three townships or chiefs. This is ridiculous. Who conferred the authority of running, and deciding, the affairs of Kumawu, an equally important founding member of the Asante Kingdom, upon him? The secret is, he has since the demise of Barimah Asumadu Sakyi II, arranged to sell Kumawuman lands to some White Zimbabwean farmers and companies. I revealed this secret dealing in which he is assiduously involved in one of my previous write-ups. In order to achieve his plans by going through the backdoor, he has condoned and connived with Agogohene and Kwamanghene to claim joint-ownership of the Kumawuman lands in the Afram Plains.


Now, Agogohene has come out boldly proclaiming that he is selling his lands in the Afram Plains to some company. Where is this land? Is it not what Asantehene will demarcate to him from the Kumawuman lands after the rented surveyor has completed the work assigned to him? Kwamanghene will also dispose of his share. Who at all mandated Asantehene to survey, share and sell Kumawu land in the Afram Plains? Is it his girlfriend, thus, Kumawuhemaa, or Kumawu Krontihene, alias “Tikenenkenen?” Asantehene has no mandate to run Kumawuman in the dubious manner he has been engaging himself, readers please take note. He has every right to do whatever he likes with Kumawhemaa as two consenting adults but to use his sexual relationship to fool Kumawuman is very out of order.


Has Asantehene not promised Kumawuhemaa and the Krontihene GHC60,000 when he sells the land? I have credible information on this promise made to the two criminals who are running down Kumawuman.


I decided to discontinue with issues involving the Kumawu chieftaincy affairs but Asantehene and his cohorts are taking the Mickey. I will come back in full force. Is this part of the reasons why Asantehene, though not having power over Kumawu, has intended to stall the resolution of the Kumawu chieftaincy case? Are his outrageous actions any different from the crimes committed by Alfred Agbesi Woyome? Woyome lied and connived with others to dupe Ghana of GHC51 Million. Is Asantenehe not similarly using his position as the Overlord of the Asanteman and his sexual involvement with Kumawuhemaa to inflict daylight robbery on Kumawuman? I do not see any difference in character between him and the notorious Sir Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
