Beautiful: Otumfuo Drives President Kufuor Around.

It is common knowledge that the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is a confidant of former President, John Agyekum Kufuor. It is a relationship which goes way back to when both were not in their current status.

Apart from both of them belonging to the same fraternity(Freemasons), the traditional link between Apagya household, where the former president hails from to the Golden Stool goes back into history. It is therefore not surprising when these two are seen in each other’s company often.

The latest of this friendship is even more refreshing as it does not look overly official.

In a few sighted shots, the two were seen seated in what looks like a golf cart whiles the monarch drove on. The possible location of the event is most likely the Manhyia palace. But then again, the Asantehene is known to be a lover of golf. It therefore will there be likely that it was at the golf course in Kumasi.

Another interesting thing was the fact that the carrier of the ‘Pudo’ which traditionally contains gold dust and went with the kings wherever they went,was seated right at the back of the golf cart as they drove along, with the security detail in place.

He would not be the first of the occupant of the Golden Stool to b e known as a lover of the game as his immediate predecessor Otumfuo Opoku Ware II and the one who came before him, Otumfuo Agyemang Prempeh II were also great lovers of the game.
