Asante Monarch Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has arrived in Kumasi from South Africa.
He was in SA for a “routine medical checkup” and holidays.
According to Sampson Nyamekye of HELLO FM, anxious residents who welcomed Otumfuo home were clad in white which signifies victory.
Among the large crowd were government officials, politicians and Asante and Zongo chiefs. Otumfuo Osei Tutu ll, dressed in suit wept as he saw the crowd after he touched down at the Kumasi Airport.
One may say perhaps he was moved by the huge crowd gathered to welcome him or he was surprised at how far the rumour of his death had gone.
His few weeks of absence from Ghana sparked – on social media – a viral wave of death rumours.
The Manhyia palace had to come out to deny the rumours of the Otumfuo’s death.
The Monarch himself spoke over the weekend to put matters to rest.
Hordes of his subjects gave him a rousing welcome when he touched down on Tuesday.
