Whoever dares touch Otumfuo touches me – Kwamohene warns.

Nana Owusu Nyanin I, Chief of Kwamo in the Ashanti Region’s Ejisu Juaben Municipality, has issued a harsh warning to those who, in his opinion, are insulting the Ashanti Kingdom’s ruler, His Royal Majesty Nana Otumfuo Osei Tutu.

Any sort of disrespect thrown at the Asantehene, according to the Chief of Kwamo, is equally addressed at him and all the other chiefs and paramount chiefs under the Golden Stool, and thus he and his ilk will go to great lengths to defend the Otumfuo from such attacks.

“It affects me as well if you insult the Asantehene.” So, if you touch the Asantehene, you’ve also touched Mamponghene, Asakorehene, Antoahene, Amokomhene, and all the other chiefs,” Nana Owusu Nyanin I fumed during an interview with Oman Channel.

He made the statement in response to statements made by social media activist Ohene David, who is renowned for using Facebook live streams to launch verbal attacks on the Asantehene.

The Chief of Kwamo told Oman Channel that any attack on the Asantehene — the occupant of the Golden Stool – is tantamount to declaring war on the entire Ashanti Kingdom.

“It’s a war; he’s fighting the Ashantis.” You have no right to offend the Asantehene. What is your name, and who are your parents?” He was perplexed.

Despite Nana Nanyin I’s acknowledgement of an individual’s right to expression, he believes that using that right should not constitute an act of disrespect toward Otumfuo.

The Chief of Kwamo issued a harsh warning to King David and his ilk, saying he will not hesitate to deal with them on a personal level if necessary.

“This is a man who has devoted his life and resources to helping Ghana. I’m not sure what the kid has against him (Otumfuo). Why would you want to make a joke about the Ashanti monarchy? I’m quite sure he’s not Ashanti. “I’m at war with him, and if he doesn’t stop, it’ll be battle wherever I meet him,” the chief declared.

Meanwhile, the Otumfuo, speaking at the first gathering of the Asanteman Traditional Council, gave a direct message to all of his chiefs, encouraging them to resign if they are unable to fight for and preserve the kingdom.

The chiefs, according to the Otumfuo, devalue their forefathers’ sacrifices if they cannot show bravery by supporting the Ashanti Kingdom’s monarch.
