Video: Asantehene Acts As Personal Driver To Ex-Prez Kuffour As He Drives Him Around Manhyia Palace

Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has been captured at the Manhyia Palace giving former president John Agyekum Kufuor a rare drive in a golf cart through some of its streets.

The video, which was sighted by on Twitter, gives a sneak-peek into something that people do not see every day that involves two of Ghana’s revered men.

While it is unclear what particular occasion the two met at the Manhyia Palace, one thing was clear from the outfits of all the people seen in the visuals, it was a funeral.

Without exhibiting any stress at all, the Asantehene drove off the former president followed by the security details and palace guards, with a handful of fully dressed soldiers walking alongside the cart.


Osei Tutu II, born Nana Barima Kwaku Duah is the 16th Asantehene, enstooled on 26 April 1999. By name, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is in direct succession to the 17th-century founder of the Ashanti Empire, Otumfuo Osei Tutu I. He is also the Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is the Grand Patron of the Grand Lodge of Ghana and the Sword Bearer of the United Grand Lodge of England.
