Hail the Asantehene, now “King of Kings” of Af


Lets face facts, even in our third world status, a Ghanaian is often times the most liked and trusted of all Africans, socially and professionally, so it really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that a Ghanaian traditional leader was picked to head that forum, and I must say congratulations to the Asantehene.

What I find disgusting is that many of his subjects are going to dishonor the respect accorded the Asantehene, by bloating arrogantly as though even their individually wretched souls are far more superior to all other Africans. Ashantis have no respect for fellow humans, unless you subject yourself to their warped believes. In a way Ghana is such a blessed confinement, because at worst majority of the other ethnic groups are not of a bellicose nature, hence our stability. Imagine that Ashanti Region was carved into Ivory Coast or into Burkina Faso. We should be grateful to the British, because there could have been so many permutations and combinations of how West African could have been mapped and shaped by the colonizers. I love my fellow Ghanians, specifically all the good people from all the regions, but every single day I wake up, I ask myself, WHAT IF?

I personally have several reservations about chieftaincy in its entirety, and would sincerely wish it would be abolished (allowed time to dissolve through dialogue). That being said, I do admire the numerous cultural practices of all Ghanaian traditional groups, such as the festivals, Beyond that nothing else is worthy of emulation or propagation.

Again congratulations Kwaku Duah, you have not shamed your stool, despite some of your past transgressions, you have remained steadfast. Unlike some of our other traditional leaders and their subordinates who grapple with too much power and disunity.

ABOLISH TRIBALISM - ABOLISH CHIEFTAINCY.
