Asante Kotokohene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has warned Queen Mothers in the Ashanti Kingdom against the formation of associations that are intended to undermine the authority of Chiefs.

‘King Solomon’ as he’s affectionately called said he has observed recent developments where Queen Mothers form associations and then travel to Accra to meet government officials for validation.

Addressing the Asanteman council at the Manhyia palace yesterday, Kotokohene warned he will not allow any act of disrespect from queen mothers in his jurisdiction.

“These days I have noticed some of the queen mothers are rising up and forming associations. Those from Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and others and they quickly rush to Accra and other places with their associations, be careful that is not how it is supposed to be. Let me be clear with you, wherever you go in government, nothing could be done unless they come to me first. I’m monitoring.” His Royal Majesty decrees.

“You Queen Mothers are to sit behind and beside your chiefs. You are to advice us that is how it is planned. If we do something wrong you take us home and advice us, that is where you talk to us. Our power as men is even with you women. You are to advice us, not to overtake us. The queen mother role is not meant for fashion and taking nice pictures.” The Asanteman ‘Wura’ warned.

On other matters, the Otumfuo also gave the assurance that all Chieftaincy litigations brought to his palace will be dealt with before the end of the year in order to ensure sanity and peace in the Ashanti kingdom.
