ASANTEHENE TO INTRODUCE 83-YEAR-OLD SISTER AS NEW ASANTEHEMAA.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is expected to introduce his eldest and 83-year-old sister, Nana Ama Konadu, as the next Asantehemaa to succeed Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II, who passed on in November last year.
One of quite a few remarkable incidents in the life of the late Nana Afia Kobi was that, it took the intervention of a traditional priest to make her deliver safely and with ease, her first daughter in the person of Nana Ama Konadu.
Nana Ama Konadu (pictured below) was a product of Nana Afia Kobi’s first marriage to Opanin Kofi Fofie of Besease, near Atimatim in the Kwabre District of Ashanti.
According to Graphic Online’s Kumasi reporter, Kwadwo Baffoe Donkor, she is expected to be introduced at the 80th day observance of the passing on of Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
Early on, there was jubilation in the palace of the queen mother when word went round that Nana Ama Konadu had been chosen.
This was after she had been introduced to the Gyaase clan in the queen mother’s house.
The Asantehene was expected to introduce her to Asanteman later.
