Kumawu Chieftaincy Dispute Reveals the Double Agents Within

As the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute drags on, the double agents who for their parochial interests used to courier information from one camp to the other have been exposed. They became human conduits, eavesdropping on conversations at one camp and delivering them to the other and vice versa.

I decided to name them but at a second thought, I have decided not to. However, they all know themselves. They have lost the respect I had for them. They had been double agents, same believing to benefit financially from both camps or simply for the joy of being two-faced.

One thing about them is they will interact with you, seeming to be pleasant and feeding you with information but all in attempts to knowing or gathering your secret plans to convey to the other camp. Nonetheless, they have all been caught in the nick of time and done away with.

Many people who have come to know these double agents have shunned them. Some of them are now biting their fingers in regret. Had they known, they would have remained faithful to only one camp of their choosing but not to have sought to enrich themselves being cunningly part of both camps.

As I speak, one woman has gone far and wide to cast aspersions on Kumawuhene Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V, the real royal from the matrilineal lineage of Barimah Tweneboah Koduah I, the originator of the Kumawu Koduah Stool.

She has been spreading false information intended to tarnish his integrity. She had been informing people that Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V can never come to the United Kingdom because he had duped someone hence he is a declared wanted person. His passport has been retrieved from him; he has no place of his own in Kumasi but lives in the house of his Jamaican friend in Ghana, she misinforms her listeners.

All her assertions are complete balderdash. I will advise the public or all those people she tells such stories to, to take her claims with a pinch of salt.

As we speak, Barimah has been to the UK; gone twice to Belgium to see his dead sister's body that will be flown back to Ghana on Tuesday, 1st March 2016 for burial. Can a person who cannot travel to the UK because his passport has been confiscated or expired without the possibility of ever having it back or renewed do this?

He went to Belgium accompanied by his best Jamaican friend who has a house in Kumasi and is presumed to be looking for Barimah to arrest because he had duped him. Can this be possible? Both are more of brothers than friends, if anyone cares to know.

This same double agent woman has infiltrated into Barimah's family, instigating some family members to mutiny against him. Yes, they did as admonished by her but they have FAILED very miserably.

Ever since she became aware of Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V's arrival in London with his two trips to Belgium accompanied by his best Jamaican friend alias Kwasi Robinson, this double agent woman is awash in shame like her predecessor male double agents.

My advice to these double agents and would-be such agents is, please be it known to you that the chiefship of Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V is from God Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth and everything therein. Therefore, anyone who tries to lie about him or attempts to obstruct the materialisation of God's purpose for him will fall flat on their face before him.

He who doubts me can inquire from Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II about how easily people who had criminally sought to rob Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V of his God-ordained chiefship have been exposed and disgraced.

If you are such an evil double agent, you can pray and fast until thy Kingdom come, your prayers will never reach God but will be like the smoke from the burnt offering to God by Cain. The smoke did not go straight to heaven like that of Abel but was all over the place on the ground. This goes to tell that his offering was not accepted by God. Shame on these double agents!

Finally, may I advise people to always try to tell the truth for if you tell lies and the truth comes out, you will be awash in perpetual shame?

I extend my heartfelt condolences to Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V; his entire bereaved family and his Elders on this occasion of the demise of his 47-year old youngest sister.

Barimah, damifra due,
Due, due ne amanehunu.
