How God is exposing all those involved in the ongoing Kumawu chieftaincy dispute

I should not have put out this publication in the first place if it was not to inform the public that God has his hand in, and is in control of, the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute. God, through prophetic revelations via his trusted prophets has made it vividly understandable to me and some people that He knew one John Kwasi Oduro, even when he was a foetus in his mother’s womb, blessed and designated him, to become the paramount chief of Kumawu traditional area one day in his adult life.

Therefore, the battle by some unscrupulous persons to negate the purpose of God for him dating as far back as his foetal stage, has been met with tough resistance to the shock of these opportunists who thought they could simply have their way because Mr John Kwasi Oduro and his family and supporters are too poor and are without the means to challenge their powerful evil machinations.

Now, Mr John Kwasi Oduro, a royal from the Kumawu Ananangya royal family, of matrilineal lineage to Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, the originator of the Kumawu Kodua Stool, has conventionally been enstooled the paramount chief of Kumawu and goes by the stool name Barima Tweneboa Kodua V. He is accepted and recognised by about 95% of Kumawuman subjects both home and abroad as their legitimate Kumawu Omanhene (paramount chief).

Let me take curious people and the doubting-Thomases on a trip down memory lane to prove my point or assertion. As God is in control and does not hurry to punish sinners and those who stupidly take Him to a contest, He has been warning the fraudsters in the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute in various ways but they refuse to take notice of hence this publication.

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for his selfish and insatiable quest to arrogate to himself royal prerogatives over Kumawu, although as uncustomary and untraditional as his attempts are, has made a laughing stock of himself. He claimed on 24 February 2014 at his Kumasi Manhyia Palace that Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and her Ankaase “royal” family are direct matrilineal descendants of Barima Tweneboa Kodua I. This is historically not true. They are not.

He told some Norwegian family that he is the Overlord of Asanteman with the right to sell any stool lands to them from any Division (State) within the Asante Confederacy now called Asanteman Council without any paramount chief able to raise a voice against him. This is not true. I have documentary evidence to the contrary. In all his numerous lies, he has been exposed and he is now a disgraced person not by the work of man but by God. His greed and resolute determination to have his way in the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute to be able to exploit the resources and the people of Kumawuman keep hitting the rock, thanks to God.

The Asanteman Council with their vociferous Mamponghene have been exposed and shamed by God as accomplices who are on the wrong track to prove God a liar.

The Chief Justice, Mrs Theodora Georgina Wood and one Judicial Secretary Acheampong have all been blemished in one way or the other as far as God’s drive to ensure his purpose for his anointed servant Barima Tweneboa Kodua comes to pass.

COP Nathan Kofi Boakye and the Effiduase Divisional Police Commander dubiously or collusively got involved in the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute using assaults with the sole aim of cowing Barima Tweneboa Kodua V and his sub-chiefs and supporters into submitting to the shenanigans and criminal coercions by Asantehene, Kumawuhemaa and their accomplices. They failed miserably. Where are they now? Out of sight and out of mind!

Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah has confided in some people that she has done whatever she could and should, visiting almost all the powerful fetishes in Ghana, Togo, Benin and India yet, she has not been able to kill or compel Barima Tweneboa Kodua V to abandon his resolve to wrestle his usurped birth-right throne from the alleged “Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, the puppet imposed on Kumawu as their Omanhene by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II acting in concert with his accomplices (Asanteman Council, Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and then President of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama). This goes to tell that the battle is the Lord’s and God Himself is in control of the situation.

Lately, she was able to arrange through one Amma Adoma, her trusted friend doubling as a sub-queen in Kumawu, also an alleged extra-marital girlfriend of Hon. Albert Kan Dapaa, the Minister for National Security, to cause the arrest, remand and arraignment of Kumawuhene Barima Tweneboa Kodua V.

The Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah with the probable goading of Hon. Albert Kan Dapaa, dispatched some military and police personnel to Kumawu Bodomase on Thursday, 16 February 2017 to assault Barima Tweneboa Kodua V and his sub-chiefs and retinue of mourners in procession to the funeral grounds to pay their last traditional respect to the remains of the late Kumawu Akyempemhene Nana Okyere Krapa II prior to his interment in the late hours of the day.

The whole world bears witness to what happened which I have escalated it to the attention of the Amnesty International and the Office of the United Nations Human Rights in Geneva.

The fact that God is in control, the police officers and the military ended up wounding themselves with their own weapons through what I could see and conclude as friendly fire.

Miraculously, Hon. Albert Kan Dapaa has committed the mother of all cockups; taking a wrong and unprofessional decision in the incident of the Delta Force same as he had resolved to take in the Kumawu Bodomase case. He has now become a national target for ridicule and insult. This is how God works to prove to humankind that man’s ways are not his ways with no man able to take him to contest and wins. Man proposes, but God disposes.

He thought he could have his way in the Kumawu Bodomase case to satisfy his girlfriend, by listening to his heart instead of his head. Now, he is a national disgrace and he had better resign his post. Where then are his powers to implement his collusive plots against Barima Tweneboa Kodua V but in favour of Kumawuhemaa, Asantehene and Dr Yaw Sarfo, the alleged Kumawuhene Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua?

Anyone who involves themselves in the ongoing Kumawu chieftaincy dispute with the evil intent to twist the truth will be disgraced by God and in the end face his wrath.

After Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah has failed in all her spiritual (fetish) resorts to harm the person of Barima Tweneboa Kodua V, she has now taken to criminal means to have him physically exterminated by using the Ghana police and the military.

It is on record that the Divisional Police Commander of Ashanti Effiduase now transferred to Asante Bekwai had ordered for Barima Tweneboa Kodua V’s execution claiming it to be an order from above. This is how evil Kumawuhemaa and her accomplices could be. Was the order from the Ashanti Regional Minister Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah, the Minister for National Security Hon. Albert Kan Dapaa, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Cop Nathan Kofi Boakye or whom? Nobody can tell except the Divisional Police Commander himself. However, it was arranged by Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amposah, a known NDC stalwart who easily wormed herself into the heart and mind of Hon. Albert Kan Dapaa due to Amma Adoma’s extra marital affairs’ connection. Shame!

I have now informed the world that God is solidly behind Barima Tweneboa Kodua V so any evil weapon formed against him shall not prosper and those forming such weapons will suffer God’s wrath in consequence.
