Standing Up Squarely to Asantehene

– He Gets Reported to International Dignitaries and Organizations!

It's not over, until it's over; this is my sternest warning shot to Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. I shall never allow him to get away with his dubious intention to rewrite the history of Kumawu to suit his insatiable greed. Will I not have failed the suffering masses of Kumawuman if I allowed him to get away with his evil intentions? He has not only colluded with Kumawuhemaa and his Asanteman Council to twist the history of the paramountcy of Kumawu, but also, plans to defraud Kumawuman in a broad daylight.

Never shall he get the 50% of Kumawuman money sitting in the Bank of Ghana as promised him by Kumawuhemaa. Never will he be allowed to saunter away in peace after stealthily arranging to sell 240,000 hectares of Kumawuman stool lands in the Afram Plains to the Norwegian business tycoon.

For the attention of the whole world, I have officially written to notify the following mentioned persons and organizations about how Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, by his acts of greediness, lies and disregard for the laws of Ghana, has directly placed Kumawuman on the precipice of agitation.

Those so far contacted are Her Majesty the Queen of England, President Barack Obama, European Human Rights Court, His Holiness Pope Francis, The United Nations and The International Court of Justice. Asantehene himself, the Chief Justice of Ghana, Nana Daasebre Oti Boateng, Nana Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, Nana Kobina Nketsia V and Osaagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II have been sent copies of the letter sent to the International Court of Justice.

I have letters in my possession that are ready to be dispatched to His Holiness Justin Welby (the Archbishop of Canterbury), The Prince of Wales, The Prime Minister of the UK, The UK House of Lords and The American Congress. I have only run out of copies of the video tape attesting to how Asantehene and his Asanteman Council proved how incompetent, prejudiced and capricious they were in exercising the discretionary powers conferred upon them to adjudicating cases.

The letters to these foreign leaders and organizations are indictment on the Ghana judiciary. How could the courts dismiss cases like that of Kumawu when brought before Justice Paul K. Richardson of the Kumasi Human Rights Court amid the provision of credible evidence and the citation of all relevant traditional and statutory laws confirming the committal and the illegality of bribery?

I shall be writing to many chiefs and organizations in Ghana including the Parliament.

I shall not sit down for Asantehene, a person who claims to be law unto himself in Ghana, to do as he wants when he wants; to dupe the poor people of my place of birth, Kumawuman. I thought he would change for the better after his roguish life led in the UK and Canada but he has rather obstinately become worse.

I personally do not recognise that Dr Yaw Sarfo that he has imposed on Kumawu as chief to serve his (Asantehene's) evil intentions.

Never will I allow my fellow Londoner, to cheat the suffering people of my place of birth. I have to be of truthful service to them hence taking Asantehene on. He asserts he has developed a tough skin; he is above the law and can do whatever he likes in Ghana without anyone able to question or stop him.

I shall prove him wrong. I shall punch holes in whatever tough skin he has developed. Time will be the judge. Time will tell. There is coming a time that he will lose every respect he has abroad and will be subjected to searches at the airports like any other ordinary passenger. Things are changing so he has to stop deceiving himself.

As long as he wallows in his dubious acts, he will not know any peace. Kumawuhemaa and her family are not matrilineally descended from Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, the originator of the Kumawu Kodua Stool as mischievously asserted on video tape by Asantehene. Bribery is a crime in Ghana and in all civilized countries but Asantehene sees it differently.

Those that I have written to will be the best judges.

The fight to prove Asantehene wrong on the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute continues unabated! His tough skin will be rendered tender like that of a new born baby by the end of the fight for justice for my people. Who says there are not bold persons in Kumawuman to stand up to modern day dictators like Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II?

My readers please tune in to Sources radio UK online. I shall be in the studio very often from today onwards to share views on Kumawuman and Ghana politics in general.
