Chieftaincy: Dormaahene Meets His Meter against Otumfour and why Kumawu exposes him over his claims

There has been a slight altercation and accusation upon counter accusation between the highly revered Ashanti King Otumfour Osei Tutu II and Paramount of Forms Traditional Council Oseadeyo Agyemang Badu.


The Dormaa Chief has already asserted that the Ashanti's was under the captive of the Denkyira kingdom where they were slavishly submissive as slaves whose job was to gather wood with axe for Denkyira and henceforth the name "Kumase" which literary means under the axe


The Chief of Dormaa has bitten more than he can chew for getting the Kumasi and Kumawu history truncated before Otumfour.


Much of our rich history that took Okomfo Anokye some days to plant the 'kum' trees that gave rise to Kumasi and Kumawu city and town had been twisted by the Dormaahene


If he claims that Kumasi never originated from the works of the powerful Okomfo Anokye the traditional priest, then where from the name Kumawu, the town that got its name as a result of the death of one of the two trees planted by Anokye priest ?


Ever since he made this assertion with further claim that some tribes still want other tribes to be under their tutelage, the overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom His Royal Majesty Otumfour Osei Tutu II.


But in a sharp response, the Ashanti King has faced the Paramount chief of Dormaa with a beautiful and peaceful response


"If you say today, no one can make the other a subject, who is making the other a servant here. No one has made the neighbor a servant,” he emphasized.


The Ashanti King interestingly has some sort of connection with the erstwhile Bono and Ahafo Region especially Techiman, Bechem and others where the aforementioned city and towns seems to owe allegiance to the Ashanti Kingdom.


Now Asantehene has clarified things which makes the words of the Dormaa chief nothing but out of hatred and envious .
