“Kumawuhene” Relies on a Small Boy for Directions & Spiritual Protection

“Kumawuhene” Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah Relies on a Small Boy for Directions & Spiritual Protection

Is it not a disgrace for Kumawuman citizens to witness the occasion of their supposed Kumawuhene, Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah (Dr Yaw Sarfo), being physically consciously and psychologically manipulated by a young man of about thirty years? This man who claims to possess juju and hence is a powerful spiritualist, (probably by pretence) has been able to capture the mind, soul and body of Dr Yaw Sarfo. He seems to possess, and handles, Dr Yaw Sarfo, in his hand as though he is handling an egg. He has absolute control over Dr Yaw Sarfo's life at the moment.

The purported jujuman has currently placed Dr Yaw Sarfo in a position where he exercises an absolute power of "life and death" over him. He dictates to Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah (Dr Yaw Sarfo), the collusively imposed Kumawu Omanhene on the peace-loving people of Kumawuman. He tells him when to wake up, in which room to sleep; when, and when not, to enter the Kumawu palace, what food to eat, when to travel and in which car etc. He is the first to taste every meal put on the table for Dr Yaw Sarfo.

How can Dr Yaw Sarfo degenerate himself like that? Is it for the purposes of wearing the kingly Kumawu Koduah Stool's crown? Is it for a quest to be accepted and embraced by Kumawuman citizens as their only genuinely elected Omanhene even though he isn't? What else can explain the incomprehensible circumstances in which he has placed himself under the "abracadabra" magical wand of this said young man or boy?

Who is this pretentious juju man, one may wish to know? He is nobody other than one Amidu Issaka, the current National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman of the Kumawu District. He completed his Junior Secondary School (JSS) education at Kumawu Presbyterian JSS in 1999. His father was one Opanin Issaka, formerly the watchman at Kumawu Water Works. However, he became the watchman for Kumawu Presbyterian Primary School until his death at a very advanced age.

The mother of this Amidu Issaka is one Emma Mpaga. The "Emma" here is Madam as per the understanding of, and pronunciation by, our Ghanaian compatriots from the Northern part of Ghana. The parents of Amidu are origins of Burkina Faso, formerly Upper Volta and are from Ouagadougou.

One of his senior brothers was one Jafaro Issaka. Jafaro was arrested in Kumawu for stealing some chemicals used for tomato farming. He was arraigned and sentenced to two years imprisonment. He started the jail sentence in Kumasi Central Prisons. He was later moved or transferred to Obuasi prison from where he did a runner, or escaped from prison to his home country of origin, Burkina Faso. Miserably, he died last year. His mum, Emma Mpaga attended his funeral but has since not returned to Ghana.

Now back to Amidu. He has self-styled himself as the new Kumawu Nsumankwaahene for Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah (Dr Yaw Sarfo), the purported Kumawu Omanhene. Following his close association with Dr Yaw Sarfo, this young man saunters around the streets of Kumawu, and drives about with puffed up chest.

All the people at Kumawu Zongo now call him "Nana Nsumankwaahene". Who is Nsumankwaahene, one may want to know? He is the "spiritual and traditional physician" of a king.

This is the man or a boy who has been leading Dr Yaw Sarfo and Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah to carry out all the dastardly devilish nocturnal activities in and around Kumawu with intent to harm, kill or destroy people they perceive as their enemies. Try as the boy does, he will never succeed. His evil plans and attempts will backfire on him and his employers, God willing. For the bible says he who curses shall himself be cursed.

As at writing, Kumawuhemaa has been compelled to taste the bitter concoction she had prepared for her perceived enemies who are although innocent persons, fighting for the rights and interests of Kumawuman people. For the past six days, Dr Yaw Sarfo has vamoosed from Kumawu. I hope Amidu has not taken him elsewhere, Ouagadougou probably, to fool him further by pretending to procure him more powerful spiritual protection and to fire more lethal salvos at his principal enemies – Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V, Nana Aduanahene, Nana Nsumankwaahene, Nana Akyempemhene, Nana Bodweasehene, Nana Akwamuhene etc.

Once more, Serwaah Amponsah, Dr Yaw Sarfo, Amidu Issaka and their cronies or accomplices should understand that whatever evil they intend for the mentioned rival chiefs is rather directed at God Almighty. Will they be able to fight God in the hope of prevailing over HIM?

The supposed Kumawuhene Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah can never legitimize his ineligible enthronement through the satanic acts espoused by Amidu Issaka.

The fight to liberate Kumawuman from the evilness of Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah continues unabated. Dr Yaw Sarfo had better bear in mind that inciting the police, especially DCOP Nathan Kofi Boakye and the Effiduase Divisional Police Commander to support his cause will not wash. God has power over all of them. They are all His mere handiwork.

I hope Dr Yaw Sarfo will freely avail himself of my overflowing fountain of wisdom. He must leave Kumawu to continue with his medical practice because the Kumawuman people are not ready to accept him as their Omanhene.
