Chieftaincy institution has rules, if you flout them you’ll be dealt with – Safo Kantanka explains destoolment of chiefs by Asantehene

A monarchical historian at the Manhyia Palace, Osei-Bonsu Sarfo-Kantanka, has explained the reasons for the destoolment of some sub-chiefs by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

He explained on the Ghana Tonight show on TV3 Tuesday, August 22 that chieftaincy institution has rules and regulations that all players in the sector should abide by.

In the Asante Kingdom, he said, the Asantehen is the highest order when it comes to the hierarchy and has the power to destool any sub-chief who has engaged in wrongdoing.

So far, the Asantehen has destooled five chiefs in 2023 for different various reasons including abandonment of stool, illegal small-scale mining (galamsey) as well as land issues.

Safo Kantanak explained that “Chieftaincy institution has got its own way of life, the institution has got its rules and regulations in line with culture and tradition, just like any other institution has rules and regulations and so if you go against the rules and regulations in one with culture then, of course, you have to be penalized for doing the wrong thing.

“It is a hierarchy and the highest order within the Ashanti community is the Asantehene at the topmost level of the chiefs within the Asante man community.”
