Slowly, a rumour is creeping in that the current Asantehene- Otumfour Osei Tutu II is dead.
Without any sort of evidence or whatsoever, the rumour which started few days ago has attained a national attention to the extent that a prominent Asante chief- Nana Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman V had to step in to debunk it…
According to Hello FM;
Otumfuo Manwerehene, Nana Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman V has denied rumours peddling round that the Royal Occupant of the Golden Stool Otumfour Osei Tutu II has passed on.
Debunking the speculation, Mawerehene, Nana Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman V who spoke exclusively to HELLO FM’s King Edward at Manhyia said there is no iota of truth in the speculation and disclosed that currently Otumfuo Osei Tutu ll is in South Africa and will be returning to the country next week.
He added that though they have heard about the rumour, they are patiently waiting for the arrival of His Royal Majesty before an official release will be issued to that effect.
Ghanaians should be calm and not be alarmed, His Royal Majesty is Healthy and will soon be returning to the country from his official visit to South Africa, he assured.
He therefore admonished people who have been posting such information on the various social networks about the alleged demise of Otumfuo Osei Tutu to refrain from such act.
