“You can’t stop illegal minining but you are celebrating Sagrenti War”- Twene Jonas blast Otumfour (video)

Twene Jonas, a Ghanaian social media personality based in the U.S., has shared his thoughts on the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Sagrenti War by Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu.

The Asanteman celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Sagrenti War on 6th February, 2024, marking a significant milestone in their history.

In response, Twene Jonas has expressed his belief that Otumfour should direct his attention towards his own accomplishments, rather than commemorating the achievements of others.

In a widely circulated video discovered by our team, Twene Jonas has expressed his belief that the development in Asanteman is comparatively lacking when compared to other regions.

According to him, if the forefathers of the Ashanti Kingdom had been weak, Otumfour would not be commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Sagrenti War.

Would we be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Sagrenti War today if our forefathers were weak? “What measures are you taking to ensure the preservation of the Ashanti Kingdom for future generations to celebrate its 100th and 150th anniversaries?” Twene Jonas inquired.

According to Twene Jonas, Yaa Asantewaa, despite being a woman, successfully led the Ashanti Kings in the War of the Golden Stool. This war aimed to safeguard the Golden Stool’s sovereign independence from British colonial rule.

“Yaa Asantewaa, despite being a woman, played a crucial role in fighting for Asanteman,” he stated.

In the video, the socialite highlighted the issue of illegal mining, claiming that certain individuals, including Otumfour, the president, vice president, and Chairman Wontumi, have been involved in activities that are detrimental to the Ashanti Kingdom.

According to him, if the Asantehene possessed greater strength, he could have effectively halted illegal mining in the Ashanti Region.

“Take a strong stance against Galamsey, combat illegal mining with determination, but it seems like a challenging task.” It’s impossible to prevent Wontumi from accessing his own land. And you expect us to view you as an influential individual. What abilities do you possess? Illegal mining remains a persistent issue, with concerns raised about the effectiveness of efforts to address it. The actions taken by Akufo Addo in this regard have been a topic of discussion. Bawumia is unstoppable, no matter what. “And you have caused him to devastate the Ashanti Kingdom through unauthorized mining,” he stated.
