Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been playing golf together with Akyem monarch Osagyego Amoatia Ofori Panin II, as part of the Head of State Invitational Golf Tournament.
“Asantehene is being joined by the Okyehene to tee off as part of the opening ceremony”, a post on Manhyia Palace’s Facebook page said on Saturday, 16 July.
Earlier, the paramount chief of the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Area met the Asante monarch at his Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, capital of the Ashanti Regional.
It is also unclear what the two respected traditional monarchs discussed.
There has been no love lost between the Akyems and Asantes for eons over historical differences.
The tension between the two got to a head in May this year when the Asantehene exploded in anger over an alleged attempt by the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo; and Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a relative of the president, to undermine him (Otumfuo).
