Does Kumawuhemaa's wickedness know no bounds?

Everything has a beginning and an end except the existence of God Almighty. However, the persistent dismal behaviour of Kumawuhemaa which is scarily growing by leaps and bounds every passing day, must be a cause of great concern to many a rational subject of Kumawuman.

It is an open secret to every honest person in Kumawu how insolent, visionless, and pugilistic Kumawuhemaa is. She does not seek the interest and the welfare of the people of Kumawuman let alone, the prosperity of the locality hence conniving with people like Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to corruptly re-write the history of Kumawu with the intent to exploit the subjects of Kumawuman, and the locality, to the hilt.

After all her obvious shameful disrespectfulness, selfishness and insatiable greediness, she recently took a leap forward aimed at inflicting physical injury on Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V and his followers.

It had become public knowledge how the masquerading Kumawuhene Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua (Dr Yaw Sarfo) had threatened to spoil Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V’s sister’s funeral.

As soon as I learnt about the threat, I alerted the public to it by placing out publications on the Ghana internet news portals weeks to the day of the funeral which was finally held on Saturday, 2nd April 2016.

The long and short of the story is, Kumawuhemaa indeed arranged macho men from Accra to come to Kumawu with intention to go to Kumawu-Bodomase to cause commotion directed at either spoiling the funeral celebration or inflicting maximum injuries on some people, including possibly, Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V.

From the secret information emanating from her own camp, the macho men asked for a fee of Ghs8, 000 (80 million old Cedis). She is alleged to have told them the fee was beyond her reach. Failing to pay them the asked fee, they abandoned their pre-arranged task, thanks to God.

The “Ahenfie boys”, her staunch supporters, offered to accept GHs3,000 (30 million old Cedis) to execute the very task the macho men refused to do owing to the fact that Kumawuhemaa could not meet their terms of conditions – paying them the fee demanded.

The boys did actually go to Kumawumawu-Bodomase to start their nonsense but they were overpowered by the supporters of Barima Tweneboa Kodua V. The “Ahenfie boys” later in the evening tried to disturb the burial of the dead (Diana) at Kumawu Mpapremu, the burial ground for the true Kumawu (Ananangya and Odumase) royals, the matrilineal descendants of Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, the originator of the Kumawu Kodua Stool.

Kumawuhemaa should come out clean on why she arranged these macho men from Accra as revealed by her own supporters who out of shame and fear of reprisal for their stupidly executed plan, have recoiled into their “Ahenfie” (palace) lair. Can Kumawuhemaa be that wicked all for seeking to dupe Kumawuman with her once boyfriend, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and the supposedly puppet Kumawuhene Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua (Dr Yaw Sarfo)?

Finally, I shall advise all macho men in Ghana not to lend their service and support to anyone seeking to kill or inflict bodily injuries on their perceived rivals. They may act as Close Protection (body guard) to people for good causes but not to expend their God-endowed energies terrorising people or assisting crooks to have their way as Kumawuhemaa had sought to do.

By doing the bidding of their hirers as it was in the case of Kumawuhemaa, they should know to be couriering risk. If they had accepted to proceed to Kumawu-Bodomase to execute the task as agreed and the people of the town decided to fiercely fight back using all the ammunitions in their power, would they not have been overwhelmed? Do they know the topography of the area to escape if the occasion demanded?

The macho men should wise up, my only advice to them. Kumawuhemaa is fighting a losing battle, because Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V’s chiefship is from God Almighty. No human being can prevail over God in a contest. Kumawuhemaa and Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II are trying to but they will fail miserably. What God has purposed in the life of His servant Barima Tweneboa Kodua V shall come to pass regardless of the opposing malicious activities being undertaken by the three mentioned individuals.
