Otumfuo@25: Events Outline For April

Asanteman waits in anticipation for events slated for the Silver Jubilee of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, following the successful conclusion of the clean-up exercise on March 30, 2024.

Though the celebration is scheduled to cover the whole year, the spotlight now falls on events in April which is two days away.

It will begin with the inauguration of a new auditorium at the Manhyia Palace booked to be named after the 16th monarch of the Asante Kingdom. The commissioning will take place on April 15, 2024, and will be followed by three durbars.

The first durbar will see His Majesty spending time with fetish priests and priestesses on April 21, the second with Queen Mothers on April 22 and the third with ethnic groups domiciled in Asanteman on April 24.

Next will be firework activities at seven designated venues including the Cultural Centre, Heroes’ Park, Manhyia, Tafo, Jubilee Park, Aboabo Post Office, and Adum on the eve of April 26, which will mark exactly 25 years since Otumfuo ascended the Golden Stool.

On April 26, per schedules released by the Planning Committee of the anniversary, a non-denominational thanksgiving service will take place at the Dwabrem grounds at the Manhyia Palace and there will be an anniversary dinner at the residence of the King in the evening.

There will also be a storied photo and video exhibition showcasing the reign of the King at the yet-to-be-commissioned auditorium at the Manhyia Palace on a yet-to-be-announced date in April.
