Has the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute been finally settled?

The question many people keep asking me is, “has the Kumawu chieftaincy dispute been settled? They doubt why I have been silent on the issue lately. To the curious inquirers, I say, no! The case is still pending. Again, I have many things to do hence apportioning my time to the various tasks and attending to each of them in their own time. Is it not said among the Akans, “If you have several farms, you have the obligation to tend to each of them?”

I am now back on the Kumawu chieftaincy issue. It is still pending despite the visibly corrupt attitudes by some shameless judges to never tell the truth but to succumb to threats or be baited by some offers or promises of some sort.

It is just the figment of the warped imagination of Dr Yaw Sarfo, the masquerading Kumawuhene Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, to go on air to announce to the whole country that he is the legitimate Kumawuhene because he has won all the court cases instituted against him, and against his legitimacy as the crowned Kumawuhene. Additionally, he is the gazetted Kumawu paramount chief, he claims with authority and gaiety.

I shall ask all reasonable persons ready to listen to me to debunk his spurious assertions. Until he makes it public a true form copy of the form he filled in subsequent upon which he was accepted for gazetting by the National House of Chiefs, everybody must treat his bogus claim with the scorn it deserves.

He can tickle himself and laugh, colluding probably with the Judicial Secretary, Alex Opoku Acheampong. The truth will come to hit him hard in the face, for all to know the naked lies he has been perpetrating with the tacit support of, and coaching by, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, God willing.

You are all aware of the recent threats issued to me on the phone by one Kwaku Akosah, the senior brother of Dr Yaw Sarfo. That has not cowed me but rather strengthened me. It has got my mojo working to do more research and be ready to publish more views and facts about the Kumawu chieftaincy issue.

Kwaku Akosah, even though has gone into seclusion after exhibiting his folly and proving how unwise he is, the police will still arrest him. He thought he was strong and wise but in the end, he has proved himself the biggest fool Kumawu has ever seen. He left voicemail messages that have not only betrayed him but also, exposed his employers or those on whose behalf he acted criminally.

Does an Akan adage not hold true when it says, “we send a wise person on a mission but not the long-legged?” – “ye soma oba nyansanfo3, na yen soma anamon tenten”. Kwaku Akosah, like most of the people he reasons with, thinks using threats and dodgy means to help Dr Yaw Sarfo hang on to the Kumawu Kodua stool is the best way forward. All those who think similarly, will suffer the same fate as this ignorant man called Kwaku Akosah. He thinks he can manifest his African bestiality and jungle behaviour in the Whiteman’s land.

This web link takes you to the message left by him subsequent upon which the British police are looking for him to arrest. For how long can he hide? Let it be known to him that he can run but he can’t hide.


I shall appeal to all Kumawuman citizens who believe in the prevalence of justice and the truth as being the cardinal pivots on which the prosperity and welfare of Kumawuman and her inhabitants revolve, to please contribute in any positive effort they deem reasonable, towards the processes initiated to bring about such principles.

The above request is made in the belief that resonates the view expressed by David Allen Green who thinks, “Litigation is expensive, and unless somebody funds a claim then there is a risk that justice is denied”

Please Dear Kumawuman subjects, now that the fight to secure Kumawuman justice has climaxed, it is the right time to join the good fight in order not to be seen to be mocked as timid - "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his course succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot"------Mark Twain.

Why am I fighting for the welfare and collective interests of Kumawuman? Again, the late Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia has an answer. He said, “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph”

Until Dr Yaw Sarfo provides a copy of the form(s) he filled in upon which he was gazetted, for public scrutiny, he is not Kumawuhene. He is Kumawuhene only by the presumptions of those who are colluding with him to suppress justice.

Stay tuned for more scintillating news.
