Does “Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua get the message?

Wed, 8 Jun 2016 Source: Adofo, Rockson

The dubiously enthroned, but publicly rejected “Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, still doesn’t get the message. He does not understand that he has neither matrilineal nor patrilineal lineage to Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, the originator of the paramount Kumawu Kodua Stool as contrarily and erroneously proclaimed by the “Overlord” of Asanteman, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

During what was collusively perceived to be the final adjudication of the Kumawu stool dispute between the Ananangya and Odumase royal families on one side, and the Ankaase “royal” family on the other, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, took the Ankaases for the matrilineal descendants of Barima Tweneboa Kodua I. He, at a point, kept asking Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah if the members of the Ananangya and the Odumase royal families present at Manhyia Palace before him were also the matrilineal descendants of Barima Tweneboa Kodua I. What a near reverse psychology?

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II knows very well that the Ankaases have no blood relationship with Barima Tweneboa Kodua I yet; he pretended that they are the real matrilineal descendants of him and he wanted the whole country and the world to believe so.

This is criminal on his part. No wonder we can change the name of the leopard but never its spots. He intentionally did that with the ulterior motive of having a puppet chief in Kumawu in the person of Dr Yaw Sarfo (Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua) to be able to raid Kumawuman as and when he chooses.

Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua does not get the message when we say no.

Asantehene has the prerogative either by virtue of our tradition and custom, or the Constitution of the Republic, to meddle in Kumawu chieftaincy affairs, let alone, selecting a chief for Kumawu or imposing one on Kumawuman as their paramount chief.

By this despicable behaviour of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II imposing Dr Yaw Sarfo on Kumawuman as their Omanhene as made evident in the YouTube video link below, Dr Yaw Sarfo will forever remain the lapdog of Asantehene. He will allow Asantehene to do whatever he wants with the lands, money and other resources belonging to Kumawuman.

While Kumawuman remains shamefully underdeveloped; a disgrace to the traditional leaders and the people therein, Dr Yaw Sarfo will allow Asantehene to selfishly exploit the resources of the land for his (Asantehene’s) personal use.


For helping him become the fake Kumawuhene, something that Dr Yaw Sarfo never dreamt about, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II can rewrite the history of Kumawu to suit his selfish aspirations and intents as much as he wants, Dr Yaw Sarfo never cares. But I care!!! He will be resisted in every step and turn he takes trying to not only rape Kumawuman in broad daylight, but also, bring Kumawuman under the stringent rule of Kumasiman.

Does “Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua get the message when the subjects of Kumawuman refuse to attend his Akwasidae celebrations? After extensive publicity, announcing it on the local Information Centre radio stations-that he had organised a live band to play at his Akwasidae celebrations of Sunday 5 June 2016, and dispatching Tweneboa Kodua SHS bus to Woraso to transport people to attend the celebration, did anyone attend his invitation? No!!!

What lesson does he learn from that? Does it not tell him Kumawuman subjects have abandoned him? Does it not tell him the people do not see him as their chief but an ineligible “royal” imposed on them by a presumed Asante Overlord?

When he steps in the funeral ground, do the sympathising mourners not leave the place in droves to render the funeral ground almost empty of mourners? Why do they call him “Nana Ogu ayie” or “Nana ogu agoro?” He had better find out why.

Does he understand that promising to create, and creating, some low level sub-chief stool for the family or friend of one Alexander Opoku Acheamopong, thereby influencing Alexander to involve himself in some illegalities with intent to helping Dr Yaw Sarfo dubiously win some court cases brought against him is a crime that is punishable by law?

Does Dr Yaw Sarfo know that his senior brother, Kwaku Akosah, who lives in Streatham in London, has by his (Akosah’s) stupidity and mental immaturity, thus, little-mindedness, implicated him and Asantehene in a crime of telephone harassment directed at me? The London Metropolitan Police will arrest him and have him prosecuted.

As stupid as Akosah has appeared by not only repeatedly and at several times phoning at odd times in the wee hours of the day and during the day threatening me and other people because of me, but also, leaving equally threatening voicemail messages on my phone and those of others for my attention.

How do you see Kwaku Akosah in relation to the Akan adage, “Ye soma oba nyansanfo3 na yen nsoma annamon tenten” (We dispatch a wise person on a mission but not the long-legged). Has he not proved himself a less intelligent person? Having lived several years in the Whiteman’s land; Britain of all places, he still thought he could behave bestially as though he was living in Ghana or in an African jungle, with impunity. No, he can’t. To hear his message, please visit the underlying web link.


Since I lodged a complaint against him with the London police and subsequently published his voicemail messages which I have intention to put it out on YouTube, Kwaku Akosah has retreated into his lair, hoping that the police never laid hands on him. I have proved to him that I was born before him and I am way too far intelligent for him, a long-legged, to take me on. He has implicated Asantehene and Dr Yaw Sarfo in the crime he intended to commit against me.

Do all these not prove that Dr Yaw Sarfo’s reign is not from God? All those in his camp prefer resorting to violence and intimidations and all forms of illegalities to keep him going but they shall fail for what God has purposed shall come to pass.

Barima Tweneboa Kodua V, the true royal from the Ananangya royal family, whose members are the matrilineal descendants of Barima Tweneboa Kodua I, the originator of the Kumawu Kodua Stool, is the people’s recognised paramount chief of Kumawu Traditional Area.

I hope Dr Yaw Sarfo (“Kumawuhene” Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua) gets the message clearly well from today forward: he should not be deceived any further by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II who has suggested to him to keep fighting, same believing in “ehuru a ebegyo” – the whirlwind will settle in the end.

No, Kumawuman subjects will keep fighting until true justice prevails, and it shall, by the grace of God! The whirlwind will never settle until justice for Kumawuman and her subjects has been obtained!
