"Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II dethroning Bekwai-Abodom Chief"
The dethroned Chief of Bekwai-Abodom amidst allegations of 'Galamsey' involvement and Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

The Chief of Bekwai-Abodom, Nana Saforo Koto, has been given the royal boot by none other than the big boss, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II himself.

Rumor has it that our dear Chief Nana Saforo Koto found himself in some intense waters, and I'm not talking about a leisurely swim in the river. The word on the street is that he's been tied up in a whopping 20 cases of alleged galamsey—that's illegal mining, folks. Now, that's not the kind of gold rush you want your chief to be leading, am I right?

It seems like Chief Nana Saforo Koto might have had a side hustle as a real estate agent but with a twist. The residents are pointing fingers and accusing him of basically auctioning off land to those crafty artisanal miners. Can you believe it? Land deals that would make your head spin, all allegedly under the table

But wait, there's more. This tale takes an even darker turn. Our Chief, the one entrusted with keeping the flame of tradition alive, allegedly let that fire burn out. For a whopping seven years, mind you! The townsfolk are not too pleased about it. The Chief is being accused of giving his town the cold shoulder, which meant traditional rituals and customs took a backseat. Ouch, that's a pretty big slip-up for someone in his position.

It's not just the folks in town who are seeing red. The sub-chiefs under Bekwai-Abodomhene's wing are shaking their heads in disappointment. They're not thrilled about the Chief's casual attitude toward some of the essential customs tied to his role. Tradition isn't just some fancy word; it's the heartbeat of a community, and it looks like some hearts were left hanging.

When given the golden opportunity to defend himself against these allegations, our Chief Nana Saforo Koto seemed to have misplaced his voice. Yep, you heard me right. No response, zero, zilch! There was not a peep from the Chief to address the charges thrown his way. That's like leaving your popcorn unattended at the movies—you just don't do it.

As the Asanteman Traditional Council gathers, tensions in the air are thicker than a tropical rainstorm. And guess what? Our Chief, Nana Saforo Koto, couldn't escape the inevitable. Otumfuo Kyeame Kwaku Owusu, the voice of the council, laid down the law. Chief Nana Saforo Koto was declared guilty as charged, a verdict ringing in the air like a clap of thunder. The result? Drum roll, please—he's been dethroned! That's right, folks. The Chief has left the building.

But wait, there's a bigger picture at play here. It's not just about one Chief and his alleged misdeeds. Yes, it's a grander mission. In the lead-up to the Asantehene's 25th Anniversary bash, it's open season on chiefs involved in illegal mining shenanigans. If they're found guilty, consider it a one-way ticket to Dethronementville. The aim? Putting a swift end to the toxic dance between illegal mining and our precious river bodies Bravo, I say!
