Photos: Otumfuo marks 1st Akwasidae of 2024
On Sunday, January 7th, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, joyously observed the first Akwasidae of 2024, a significant year as it marks the Silver Jubilee of his enthronement.
The magnificent celebration took place at the Manhyia Palace and was attended by chiefs, Asanteman’s people, as well as well-wishers from all corners of the globe. Distinguished guests included government officials, politicians, royals from the Hausa State of Kano in Nigeria, and tourists from various parts of the world. In a truly grand spectacle, Otumfuo made his way to the durbar grounds in a palanquin, radiating his regal essence. There, he sat in dignity to accept the homage of the gathering.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one.
