Custodians at the Antoa Nyamaa shrine in the Ashanti Region have referred the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Wontumi, and the Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Duah back to the Manhyia Palace for them to properly resolve their differences.
A curse invoked by Chairman Wontumi against the Kokosohene is still in force following conflicting narratives by the two,
The Kumasi Traditional Council had settled the matter and asked the two to go to Antoa to reverse the curse,
But when they got there, the Kokosohene insisted on his narrative that Wontumi had disrespected the Asantehene per the words used during their exchange of words.
This therefore resulted in Wontumi’s inability to reverse the curse he invoked against the Kokosohene by invoking the Antoa Nyamaa shrine.
When the two went to Antoa to reverse the curse, accompanied by senior linguists (Akyeame) from the Manhyia Palace, the Kokosohene insisted that Wontumi used words to disrespect the Asantehene and so he was not going to withdraw the allegation.
Following that, Wontumi also said if the Kokosohene was insisting on his position, then he will also not be able to reverse the curse.
War of words
During the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary vetting at the Manhyia South constituency recently, there were some differences between the Kokosohene and Wontumi which led to the exchange of words.
