Otumfuo receives rousing welcome after money laundering saga [Photos]

A mammoth crowd had converged at the Kumasi Airport and the principal streets in Kumasi to catch a glimpse of the Asantehene and his entourage.

After gracefully alighting from the plane, some dignitaries, chiefs were allowed to shake hands with Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, but a few were also embarrassed when they were refused access to the great king of the Ashanti Kingdom.

The Asantehene was allegedly linked to a money laundering scandal, but those who made the allegation later apologised.

But Otumfuo’s Mawerehene, Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman V, has said the Asantehene and the Manhyia Palace are not ready to respond to stories that emerged while he was away.
