Open Letter To Kumawuhene Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V

Dear Barimah,

Please, permit me, one of your most trusted, selfless and energetic, dedicated and resolutely determined subjects to ensure the establishment of the truth, and prevalence of justice, in Kumawuman, to convey my heartfelt prophetic messages to you.

You are truly, according to my extensive academic research into, and personal knowledge of, Kumawuman paramountcy history, of the same matrilineal lineage as Barimah Tweneboah Koduah I, the originator of the Kumawu Koduah Stool hence an undisputed descendant from Seni Fontom.

Your fight to not let go your precious birth-right, the Kumawu Koduah Stool, amid established acts of collusion, persuasive offers of bribe in what amounts to "create, loot and share" by some apparently irresponsible Ashanti traditional heads and opinion leaders, is highly commended. I am proud of you. I do take pride in your fearless audacious resorts to bring about the truth in the ongoing Kumawu stool dispute.

Barimah, please keep faith in God Almighty; the God that you worship daily. He is the one who knew you, blessed you, and appointed you the paramount chief of Kumawuman when you were even a human foetus more than half a century ago. He will never let you down but keep His promise made to you when you were in a foetal position.

Bear in mind, Oh Barimah, the contents of James 2:14-26, especially, verse 26 "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also". May your strong and absolute faith in God Almighty that you worship always, encourage you to take bold steps to forge ahead in the spiritual, legal and psychological battle to rescue from the opportunistic usurpers and their accomplices, your family's unique treasure, thus, the Kumawu Koduah stool, illegally taken away from you.

Do not be daunted by the huge size of the problem you are currently going through in your noble fight to reclaim your almost lost property. DCOP Kofi Boakye and his intimidating forces will soon be rendered powerless by God. Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the supposed Asante Overlord, and his cronies shall disgracefully fail in their condescending plots to rewrite the history of Kumawu, thus, twisting the truth.

The God that you worship and have faith in, will let all your enemies capitulate; fall under your feet for all eyes to witness, provided you will keep trusting in Him and being more decisive with your action plans of "I claim my property now"! Pray without ceasing.

Barimah, I pray that you, your elders and your over 95% support base of Kumawuman citizens both home and abroad will muse on the relevance of the underlying two quotations. They have the potential to reinvigorate you in your resolve not only to reclaim what is genuinely your family's property, but also, to let happen God's purpose for Kumawuman through you.

"Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic. It is not idly, passively waiting and hoping for some good thing to happen. It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying. We must never give up, regardless of temptations, frustrations, disappointments, or discouragements." ~ Joseph P. Wirthlin

"The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." ~ Thomas Paine

With God on your side, be bold to act always; and lasting victory shall be yours and your supporters' in the end.

God be with you always. I pray that He protects you against all your enemies and redirects your steps in order not to let your foot hit any stone. Amen.

Yours Sincerely,

Rockson Adofo
