Celebrating 15years of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II

Today marks 15 years anniversary of Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II,  enthronement with the mystical Golden stool in display.. Otumfuo Osei Tutu has demonstrated what chieftaincy is all about in the modern age. That is why an electrifying atmosphere dominated by rich culture awaits all who will be part of the celebration of the Akwasidae Kese to climax the anniversary. The Ashanti tribe is the largest tribe in Ghana and one of the few matrilineal societies in West Africa. Ashanti kings have retained their figurehead status even after colonization, and today, great pride in the Ashanti King lives on in the tradition of the Golden Stool. History has it that the Golden Stool, covered with pure gold, was commanded from the skies by the legendary Okomfo Anokye.

Meet Frank Dugasseh,  a participant in the 2014 Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.
