Go and sin no more – Okyenhene to NDC’s Kwame Zu

Share this

The Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, has lifted an order by the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council directing all chiefs within the council not to accept the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and their allies in their palaces.

He has also directed that, Okyeman forgives and forgets a distasteful statement made against him by the NDC Ashanti Regional Secretary, Kwame Zu.

The decision to forgive the NDC scribe and the entire party came after the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, led a high-powered delegation including Ambassador Victor Smith, Betty Mould-Iddrisu, Antwi Gyamfi among other regional and constituency executives of the Abuakwa South Constituency, to apologise for the conduct of Mr Zu.

The NDC delegation had earlier held a closed-door meeting with the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council chaired by the Okyenhemaa, Nana Adutwumwaa Dokua, before visiting the ‘Abonsamboso’, the big stone where rituals were performed to pacify the gods.

But for the intervention of some chiefs and elders, some agitated youth and residents of Kyebi would have attacked Kwame Zu while the pacification was ongoing.

Joy News’ Maxwell Kudekor reported that leadership of the NDC went into a second meeting with the traditional council with the expectation of meeting the Okyenhene who was locked up in another meeting.

According to him, the traditional council proposed a fine of 98 sheep and 98 boxes of Schnapps. This was later reduced to 48 sheep and 48 boxes of schnapps in the absence of the Okyenhene.

But after the traditional council consulted the Okyenhene over the decision taken, he ordered them to forgive Kwame Zu and set him free.

He quashed the fine and asked him to go and sin no more.

He also advised him to show respect to the elders and do his politics without denigrating traditional leaders and the elders.

According to Okyehene, he remains a father for all and maintains a cordial relationship with all the presidents under the Fourth Republic.

Kwame Zu was whisked away through the backdoor of the palace by armed policemen to avoid a mob attack by the aggressive youth who were waiting for him in front of the palace.
