The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, disfigured the Asafohene, Akyamfour Kwame Akowuah III, for flouting Asanteman’s Great Oath, one of the Asante Kingdom’s pillars and discovered guilty of ten distinct charges.
His elders, who according to them, the Asafohene was “autocratic,” disrespected them and conducted his responsibilities contrary to Asante’s customs and traditions, struck him with forty-five points.
In delivering the final judgment at Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Thursday, June 20, 2019, Asantehene said the activities of the Asafohene infringed the customs and traditions of the punishable Ashanti Kingdom.
Ansi Boasiako, Kingdom FM’s Ashanti Regional Correspondent, noted that Otumfuo had advised the Asafohene on several occasions about problems ranging from illegal land sales, destooling and enstolment of his sub-heads.
The Asafohene, head of the Kumasi Traditional Council’s Akwamu Division (KTC), was overwhelmed in 2011.
