Ga Mantse Hosts Asantehene this Sunday

The cultural synthesis that will be formulated at the forecourts of the Palace of Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Teiku Tsuru II on Sunday will be one to behold as the King of the Asante Kingdom is expected to make a royal visit.

The Palace in Accra will host a durbar to receive the royals from the Manhyia Palace led by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, this was announced by the Office of the Ga Mantse on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at a presser.

Addressing the press, Nii Boye Abbey, a senior member of the Planning Committee for Otumfuo’s Royal Visit said the visit is a history-making one which will rekindle the strong ties of friendship between the Gas and the Asantes.

“The Office of the Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Teiku Tsuru II and the Ga Traditional Council wish to announce the special visit of the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to the Ga State on Sunday, the 9th of June, 2024.”

Elaborating on the long-standing ties between the two kingdoms, Nii Boye explained that interactions between Asantes and Gas date back centuries, giving rise to shared cultural practices such as family structure, traditional dances, calendar systems, taboos, defence mechanisms and historical interactions with other tribes.

“These similarities highlight the strong ties between the Asantes and Gas which are rooted in our shared African heritage.”

He added that the durbar will also be used to promote peace ahead of the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in December this year and therefore invited the public to do themselves the honour of going to the Palace of the Ga Mantse to serve themselves a toast of the cultural blend.

“The office of the Ga Mantse’s, therefore, invites all to witness this great moment in the Ghanaian traditional history at the forecourt of the Ga Mantse Palace at Kaneshie in Accra on Sunday.”

This is yet another significant bonding journey Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is undertaking as he has shown keen interest in forging unity and brotherliness with other tribes in Ghana.

Otumfuo believes the reigns of traditional authorities over all the tribal groups in Ghana would have been with little meaning and impact without the current friendship and brotherhood bonds they have strove to build and share.

Speaking at the climax of his 25th anniversary celebration on May 12, 2024, Otumfuo stated, “It is the harmony in diversity which we all seek. Our journey would have been with little consequences without the bonds of friendship and brotherhood we have experienced…I’m grateful for the fruitful exchange of visits for our shared experiences.”
