Asantehene In Scotland For St Andrews Africa Summit

The King of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has left Ghana for the United Kingdom to grace the upcoming St Andrews Africa Summit (SAASUM).

The Summit, hosted by St. Andrew’s University in Scotland, will see the Monarch delivering a keynote address on the topic “Traditional Leadership in a Modern Society.”

The event will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023, at the Upper College Hall of the university.

“His Royal Majesty will provide insight into the Kingdom of Asante and how the diverse peoples of Ghana fit into local and national government,” note the organizers of SAASUM.

The occupant of the Golden Stool will also be held to a reception after his address.

“This reception is in collaboration with the University, where students and community members will be able to witness a live press conference and obtain the rare opportunity to network and meet with an array of professionals— from the King himself to other varying politicians, University administrators, journalists, business owners, and more,” the organizers of SAASUM note.

St Andrews Africa Summit (SAASUM) is a student-led initiative that promotes a versatile discussion about Africa, Africans, and African Affairs.

SAASUM’s primary objective is to provide a platform that stimulates a critical dialogue about the common discourses concerning Africa by bringing together professionals, students, and academics.

“We aim to provide participants with an all-encompassing understanding of the trends currently shaping African Affairs,” reads the profile of SAASUM on LinkedIn.
