Asantehene Clashes With Dormaahene; All You Need To Know (The Story So Far)

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene and ruler of the Ashanti kingdom, has responded to Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II, the Dormaahene, after the later made statements that were considered by the former as faulty and lacked veracity.

According to Dormaahene in a viral video sighted on facebook, no chief in Ghana is 'greater than the God'. He then went ahead to give some historical explanations that suggest that Dormaa owes no allegiance to the Ashanti kingdom. He further accused the Ashanti's of distorting history and deceiving many to fall for it. Dormaahene then gave what he says is the correct history behind the name Kumasi thus, disputing the long standing one involving Okomfo Anokye and the Kum tree as a proof of distorted history.

However, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has also responded to the Dormaahene, informing him that he swore allegiance to the golden stool before becoming chief of Dormaa and that regional demarcations cannot render him autonomous. Otumfuo also reminded the dormaahene of how beneficial it is to serve the golden stool and advised the dormaahene to vacate the seat if he cannot fight for asanteman like his forefathers did.

Otumfuo further issued a warning to other chiefs in Bono East who may be considering to follow suit, saying, 'if you are a man, I am also a man.' He further said, that no man has made the other a servant and that it is an honour to serve the goldem stool.

Dormaahene, also has been quoted to have said that if you are a chief and you know the law, people are afraid of you. This probably indicates that he is not willing to give up and will continue this struggle for supremacy to the core. We await the outcome of this as it unfolds.
