God will nullify evil machinations by Ashanti ‘king kong’ in Kumawu chieftaincy dispute

Sadly, the Ashantis by their kowtowing and overly traditional subservience have created a human monster in the person of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the self-aggrandized Asante “Overlord”.

In his warped mentality and assumptions, he is the overlord of Asanteman and owns all the land in Asanteman. By the findings of my studious research, he owns only parts of Kumasi land but not the entire Kumasi land let alone, the whole land of Asanteman.

The bible has God saying, “By lack of knowledge, my people perish”. Without many Ashantis or Ghanaians knowing the limitations of Asantehene since the restoration of the Asante Confederacy in 1935, still see him as the Overlord of Asanteman with the power to usurp any land of any division (State) within Asanteman. By division, I mean the independent States that came together to form the Asante Confederacy with each such division having their paramount chief.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II in his avowed determination to usurp Kumawuman stool lands for his selfish interests, in collusion with Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and Dr Yaw Sarfo, the acclaimed, but puppet “Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, dubiously imposed on Kumawu as their Omanhene in contravention of Kumawu custom and traditions, has hatched an assassination plot.

From my reliable source of information through both human and spiritual mediums, he has tasked the Kumasi Central police station personnel and/or a contract killer to assassinate the most popular and famous rival paramount chief of Kumawu, Barima Tweneboa Kodua V, during his mum’s funeral scheduled for the second week in October 2018.

I challenge Asantehene and his agents and assigns to deny the veracity of this allegation by swearing on the Bible, Koran and all the tree and river spirits as well as the Golden Stool that they believe in that they have not plotted to have Barima Tweneboa Kodua V assassinated?

Let it be known to them that God reveals to redeem. Once the secret has come out by the grace of God, their plot is already negated. Counter measures as directed by God will be put in place and as said in the bible, “he who draws the sword die by the sword”. Whoever the assassins may be, despite the assurances given to them by Asantehene that nothing will happen to them even if they were caught, must think twice before they undertake the tasked duty. God will provide a means to punish them there and then should they try to execute their diabolic plan.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed, so a popular adage goes. Has anyone taken God to a contest and prevailed over Him? No!! Therefore, the contracted killers or hit squad must think twice before they act.

I will never respect Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as long as he remains a crook, malicious and resolutely determined to reap from where he has not sown. As it was in the case of three Hebrew men to refuse to bow to the image of a King as follows, so shall I not budge to the criminality by Asantehene but to take him on as far as my strength will take me with God granting me life, wisdom and might.

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are figures from chapter 3 of the Book of Daniel, three Hebrew men thrown into a fiery furnace by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, when they refuse to bow down to the king's image; the three are preserved from harm and the king sees four men walking in the flames, "the fourth ... like a son of God"

Their resolute faith in the Living God saved them from death. So shall my believe in truth and honest resistance to Asantehene in his devilish plots expose him as a weakling and or punished by God. He is in the wrong but being a coward and greedy person who has partly caused the downfall of Ghana, he still believes in having his way in everything because he is an artificially-created human monster by the undeserved reverence accorded him by his subjects and the Ghanaian political leadership.

Going forward, do the Asanteman chiefs and the Kumawuman sub-chiefs pandering to the nonsensicalities and criminalities by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as regards Kumawu conventions about enstoolment and destoolment of chiefs as well as the three main requests made by Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, before offering himself as a sacrificial lamb to save the Asante Confederacy over three centuries ago? I am not sure they do. If they knew, they will not be supporting Asantehene to do what he is doing to Kumawuman; determined to steal our lands and wealth.

By God’s revelation, his plot will fail and it has failed well in advance. Nobody should be scared to attend the funeral of the late Madam Rose Ama Ayewa, the mother of Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V, on Saturday, 13 October 2018 in Kumawu-Bodomase. If you are a contracted assassin, please stay away as if you do attend and make any attempt to achieve your target, you will suffer more than proportionate bitter and regrettable repercussion.

No DISEC or RESEC should try to carry out any obstructing measures that will facilitate the realisation of Asantehene’s evil plot. I hope Asantehene who is understood to be outside the country, if the claim is true, is not trying to seek any false alibi should something untoward but his purposeful plot happens. He will never be able to exonerate himself from blame or prosecution even though, he claims to be mightier than the laws of Ghana with all our political leaders hurtling to prostrate to him when he gets angry.

Let it be known to him that it takes the tiny crab to kill the mighty elephant. What a similitude of “Dr Henry Jekyll/Mr Edward Hyde” Asantehene is. As long as he is mischievously involved in the Kumawu chieftaincy affairs, plotting evil all along, I shall bring out more secrets I have kept until now. I will listen to the voice of God to do as He directs me.

In this day and age, why should we create human monsters by our acts of stupidity and cowardice as near-senseless black Africans instead of creating stronger institutions as once advised by former American President Barack Obama?

I am waiting to hear from the DISEC or RESEC following my recent published article in which they were copied via the Sekyere Kumawu District Assembly.

It is time for me to go to bed so good night, public readers. I wish Barima Tweneboa Kodua V longevity and healthy life. All shall go well with him and his sub-chiefs and all attending mourners. Don’t be afraid for God is with you always, Barima Tweneboa Kodua V. The Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God who has appointed you a liberator will guide and guard you through any tempest that may come your way.

Finally, Madam Berhene, Yaw Boamah and Nana Yaw et al, must behave as rational human beings but not as mischievous rogues. If you are true Ananangya royals, why are you allowing yourselves to be manipulated by Asantehene and Dr Yaw Sarfo to side with them in the ongoing Kumawu chieftaincy dispute against your own family? I am not blackmailing anyone but if you dare me by the continuation of your preposterous behaviour, I shall publish your history according as I know it.

A word to the wise is enough. I am fed up with you allowing yourselves to be manipulated by Asantehene and Dr Yaw Sarfo to wedge the Ananangya royal family asunder.

My condolences to Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V and his entire bereaved family. May I take this opportunity to extend my warmest greetings to Nana Akua Serwaah, a true and sincere member of the Kumawu Ankaase royal family.

The Ghana media has a responsibility to assist unequivocally in the fight against Asantehene’s corrupt practices but they seem to be scared of him hence not living up to the ethics of their profession. Should the Ghana media fail to help with stopping Ghanaian human monsters in their tracks, other social media with wider readership will be resorted to. I am not being ungrateful to the Ghana media but of late, they have adopted lukewarm attitude when anything concerning Asantehene and other political parties or issues is written about.
