Caretakers at the Antoa Nyamaa shrine have directed the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Boasiako aka Wontumi, and the Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Duah, to return to Manhyia to resolve their differences before a curse placed on the latter’s head can be lifted.

According to them, based on the two persons’ narratives at the shrine, it appears that the matter was not properly resolved at Manhyia, making it difficult for them to perform any rites to overturn the curse.

This came to the fore when Wontumi and the Kokosohene visited the sacred place yesterday to overturn the curse placed on the Kokosohene by Wontumi.

The duo has recently made headlines after it was revealed that Wontumi had cursed the Kokosohene with the dreadful Antoa Nyamaa, asking the river deity to strike the chief and his family dead for wrongfully accusing him for passing derogatory remarks again Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

The matter was sent to the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi last week, where the Asante chiefs instructed Wontumi and the Kokosohene to visit Antoa on Thursday to perform the needed rituals to overturn the cause, but this was not made to be.

At the shrine, Wontumi denied making insulting remarks about Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II during the vetting of NPP Ashanti Regional parliamentary candidates, whereas Kokosohene said that he (Wontumi) did.

Also, Wontumi reportedly admitted that he cursed the Kokosohene with the Antoa river deity out of anger because he believed the chief was falsely accusing him of a crime he had not committed.

The guardians of the Antoa shrine firmly declared that they could not carry out the procedures to lift the curse since the case had not been adequately settled after carefully listening to both Wontumi and the Kokosohene.

They then, ordered Wontumi and the Kokosohene to return to the Manhyia Palace, Otumfuo’s seat in Kumasi, for the case to be properly settled before the two could return to the shrine to have the curse lifted.

The Kumasi Traditional Council (KTC) yesterday cleared the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard AntwiBoasiako aka Chairman Wontumi of any insulting remarks made about the Asantehene during the NPP’s parliamentary vetting process.

The Kokosohene, Nana Kwaku Duah, who is the Chairman of the NPP Manhyia South Council of Elders, made the claims against Wontumi.

During a confrontation with the NPP Ashanti Regional Chairman, the chief accused Wontumi of insulting the Asantehene and lodged a complaint before the KTC.
