Know Why He Is Adamant ...


Why is this man Adofo Rockson trying to bring the Asantehene- the Overlord of Asante down to his level. Rockson Adofo is always preaching about what a great democrat he is. But his behavior is anything but a democrat. Democracy means majority carries the vote, and everybody follows the rules.
From all indications most people in Kumawu have accepted the nomination of Dr. Yaw Sarfo by the Queenmother to be the next Omanhene. A few disgruntled individuals like Adofo have adopted a position of " my way or the highway " if my candidate is not elected, then we should burn the whole place down, destroy everybody who voted for the other candidate, verbally,physically, emotionally or destroy their hard earned reputation by casting insinuations on their character. Nobody, it seems is above his anger and animosity. There are few people or symbols that all Ashantis agree on. To Ashantis, these symbols symbolise who we are as a people.Among these are the Asantehene, The Golden Stool, Komfo Anokye, Kumasi or Oseikrom. You disparage or say nasty things about these symbols, we believe you are trying to castrate us or eradicate us from the earth. When people use filthy words against the Asantehene, using fake names on the internet, we conclude that they are not Ashantis and are cowards hiding in their rat holes. We are however shocked and dismayed that a known person like Adofo, who claims to come from Kumawu,a town that has produced one of the greatest Ashantis in history, the legendary Tweneboa Kodua who gave his life for Asante, should be leading the bad guys in saying nasty things about his king, just because his candidate was not chosen as the Omanhene of Kumawu. Adofo should apologise to all Ashantis for bringing our king into disrepute and should pray to his ancestors that no evil thing fall on his extended family, for as they say " before you go to drain the Volta you should be prepared" A word to the wise is enough.
