Description DM2000050830:GHANED:FUNERAL:TRADITION:CULTURE:AUG1961 - In Memory Of Otumfuo, Sir Osei Agyeman Pempeh II, Asantehe - The Asantehemaa, the Bantamahene, the Akyempimhene, the Gyasehene, the Mawerehene and the Ankobeahene deeply regret to announce the passing awayof Otumfuo Sir Osei Agyeman Prempeh the Second. It was unbelievableto many, so shocking did it sound. But the above was the sorrowful news that, having received traditional Ashanti blessing, hit the deadlines on the morning of Saturday, 30 May May 1970. Even after this official announcement some people still remained sceptical. The reason for this sceptism was not far to find: months before the announcement Ghanaians had, with some regularity, had been hearing rumours of Otumfuo's death.
