The Kumasi Traditional Council has issued a caution to Nana Kwaku Duah, the Kokosohene who is central to the case between Chairman Wontumi and the council, regarding certain remarks made by the latter.

The Council during a hearing on Monday, January 29, 2024, warned the Kokosohene to refrain from bringing political issues to the revered Manhyia Palace, emphasizing the importance of maintaining the traditional sanctity of Manhyia.

 A member of the Council, speaking at the hearing, reminded the chiefs of the provision in the constitution that restricts chiefs from actively engaging in party politics. 

“The constitution says that chiefs should refrain from active politics… when the comments were being made Nana Kokosohene should have left the moment, he heard Wontumi say that he cannot even challenge a statement made by the Okyeame – he shouldn’t have sat there,” the chief said in Twi.
