The Konor of Manya Krobo, Nene Sakite II, has reportedly destooled the Paramount Queen Mother of the area, Nana Aplam II, for allegedly getting married to a Lawyer who hails from one of the Divisions under his paramountcy that he is having issues with.

The Konor, DGN Online gathered took the decision on Monday, during a meeting with chiefs and elders of the area where he announced the immediate destoolment of the Queen Mother for “betrayal.”

The Queen Mother was installed in 2015 after the death of her predecessor, Nana Mamle Okleyo, who died in 2012.

She recently got married to a man who hails from the Manya Division headed by the Divisional Chief of the area, Okpatakpla Nene Sasraku IV.

Okpatakpla Nene Sasraku, together with five other Divisional Chiefs in October, 2019, declared their autonomy from Nene Sakite II and elevated all the six Divisional Stools to paramountcies without the approval of Nene Sakite who is the Overlord of the Manya Krobo State.

The Queen mother married to a Lawyer from one of the breakaway paramountcies did not go down well with Nene Sakite who summoned her before the chiefs to announce her destoolment.

The Konor, therefore, took the decision to destool the Queen mother in the presence of other chiefs as he condemned her conduct, describing her as unfit to hold herself as Paramount Queen Mother of the Manya Krobo Traditional Area.

According to sources, the chiefs at the meeting reportedly disapproved Nene Sakite’s decision, but none could openly challenge his verdict.

The source close to the Queen Mother, confirmed the story and indicated the Queen’s resolve to seek redress.

“Everything you’ve heard is true,” said the source without elaborating further. The Queen was summoned before the Chiefs and her destoolment announced to her.”

Nene Asada Ahor, who is the Public Relations Officer of the Manya Krobo Traditional Council, when contacted at press time failed to confirm or deny except to say that the Council would respond appropriately and in due course.

It’s unclear if the Queen Mother’s marriage is a sacrilege to merit her destoolment.

“But if her destoolment holds, she’ll go down in history as the first Queen Mother to be destooled in the traditional area and if this decision is upheld, the Kingmakers of the Manya Krobo Traditional Area are under customary obligation to present a new candidate for installation as Queen Mother of the Area” the source hinted.
