Open Letter to Kumawuman Citizens Worldwide
Dear Kumawuman Compatriots,
May the peace of the Most High God be unto you. Amen! It is normal for me to remember you and to extend my seasonal greetings to you wherever you happen to be during this Christmas festive as long as you are alive.
I know how you discerning Kumawuman citizens have been showing great concern about the deplorable state in which our ancestral place of birth has been plunged into over years due to the deliberate neglect and acts of corruption perpetrated by certain traditional leaders to whom we entrusted the oversight of the welfare and development of the area for our collective good.
God has heard your cries and supplication to Him to effect the necessary changes to bring back smiles to your face. Subsequently, He is lately, overtly fulfilling His promise made to His servant Kumawuhene Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V, a royal of matrilineal descent to our forebear Barimah Tweneboah Koduah I, the originator of the paramount Kumawu Koduah Stool, when he was a foetus.
God knew him when he was in a foetal position in the womb of his mother and appointed him the paramount Chief of Kumawu to liberate His people from slavery under the hands of some insatiably greedy, selfish and wicked chief and queen. God knows why He has allowed him to go through such difficult times even though He Himself has appointed and anointed him the paramount chief Kumawuman as aforesaid.
He would not know the double-agents if he had not gone through the difficult lengthy processes. Would he? Would those deemed initially as faithful but who have later proved themselves wolves in lambskins (double-agents) not have been in a position to harm him because he would have trusted them with the protection of his life?
Would anyone have known the current true powers and status of Asantehene within Asanteman, formerly the Ashanti Confederacy, if the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute has not erupted and taken such a long time to resolve? Many of us erroneously thought Asantehene, and in this case Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is the Overlord of Asanteman with such extensive powers to do as he wants when he wants without anyone being able to challenge, let alone, stop him, when he is being prejudicial and extrajudicial.
However, today, most of us know by the help of Rockson Adofo through his numerous publications and research that Asantehene is only a Ceremonial Head since the arrest and deportation of Otumfuo Nana Agyemang Prempeh I in 1896 to Seychelles, his repatriation to Gold Coast (now Ghana) in 1927 and the restoration of the Ashanti Confederacy in 1935. No Asantehene has any powers over the paramount chiefs of any of the divisions that came to form the Ashanti Confederacy (Asanteman) and their lands hence Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is without any iota of power over the affairs of Kumawuman.
My assertions about Asantehene and the powers he and his cronies or accomplices (Asanteman Council, Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and the alleged Kumawuhene Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah – Dr Yaw Sarfo) have illegally assumed were confirmed by a Mampong High Court judge in his summation for ruling on the alleged, but completely illegal, destoolment of certain Kumawu sub-chiefs (Kumawu Aduanahene, Kumawu Akwamuhene, Kumawu Akyempemhene and Kumawu Nsumankwaahene) on Tuesday 22 December 2015.
Now, the alleged mentioned destooled chiefs have been declared victorious in their suit brought before the court against the action taken by the named perpetrator of crime and his accomplices against them. They have now been reinstated by the court.
Have you seen how God works in His own time to achieve his set objectives as promised to people? Have I not said in most of my previous publications that God is working in favour of Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V in fulfilment of His promises made to him?
Do not be daunted by the many herculean problems Kumawuhene Barimah Tweneboah Koduah V is going through to have his God-promised kingship with the liberation of Kumawuman people from the shackles of slavery and intimidation wrapped around their ankles and wrists by Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, firmly established or come to pass. Everything is within God’s larger plan so exercise patience without becoming exasperated.
Are you worried about the numerous sub-chiefs and their qualities and the propensity at which the alleged Kumawuhene Barimah Sarfo Tweneboah Koduah (Dr Yaw Sarfo) is swearing them in? It is all more ado about nothing! When you decapitate (cut off the head of) a snake, the entire of its remains is said to be merely a ROPE! – It becomes lifeless and is unable to bite hence becoming nothing for anyone to fear of.
Dr Yaw Sarfo, by my extensive research, available facts and evidence as you might have seen and read on the internet news portals is not a chief but simply a stooge imposed on Kumawuman by Asantehene and Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah to facilitate their exploitation of the wealth of Kumawuman to the hilt. They will fail, you must rest assured.
God has stretched His strong arm against them. They will lose all the court cases and by the time they lose four, Dr Yaw Sarfo will have abdicated his false enthronement as the paramount Chief of Kumawu.
More publications that will cheer your hearts and souls will be seen in 2016 so do not forget to follow me on the internet for updates on the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute.
My belated Merry Christmas and a Successful New Year in advance to you all.
