“They are all kings in their territories, Twene Jonas said nothing wrong by calling Asantehene to make his territory great.”- Netizens


Netizens are backing Twene Jonas over his comments about the great king of the Asante kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu for comment he made concerning the fight about Galamsey in Ghana.

According to some Ghanaians, especially people from the Asante kingdom, it is disrespectful for Twene Jonas to pass those comments to their king hence calling on him to apologize with immediate effects.

Jonas got a lot of support from people including KalyJay, a Twitter influencers—- know for the popular harsh tag fix the country, who compares the Otumfuo to the king of Dubai saying; “They are all kings in their territories. Twene Jonas said nothing wrong by calling Asantehene to make his territory great.”

He got reply from a follower who says; “But you realize that one has sovereignty over the entire territory while one is only a king over a people in a country.

Nana Addo is the sovereign but not Asantehene. In Dubai, the Sheikh is the sovereign; the supreme authority. The Asantehene is not. He confirms to sovereign.”

All resources in Dubai are in the trust of the Sheikh. The Asantehene only receives a percentage of royalties paid for resources on his land. Majority is paid to government headed by Nana Addo.

Do you assume Accra is developed cos the Ga Mantse is using his share of royalties?

Don’t confuse the two by comparing the Asantehene to the Sheikh in Dubai.

I agree that the Asantehene can help develop to Kumasi and Ashanti to an extent but to compare what can achieve based on what he has at his disposal to that of the Sheikh in Dubai is really far-fetched.”
