Dormaahene Reports Otumfuo to Bawumia Over Sampa Crisis

by Motoni Olodun

Dormaahene, the paramount chief of Dormaa Traditional Area in the Bono Region of Ghana, has sparked a political firestorm by filing a report against Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene (King of the Ashanti Kingdom), to Vice President Bawumia, amid escalating tensions surrounding the Sampa chieftaincy dispute.

In a bold move that could have far-reaching consequences, Dormaahene has accused Otumfuo of being the primary instigator of the crisis in Sampa, a town located in the Jaman North District of the Bono Region. This move marks a significant escalation in the longstanding feud between the two prominent traditional leaders.

The conflict centers around the enstoolment of a new chief for Sampa, a process mired in controversy and allegations of external interference. Dormaahene’s decision to involve the government underscores the gravity of the situation and raises questions about the role of traditional authorities in modern Ghanaian governance.

The Dormaahene, who wields considerable influence in the Bono Region, has made a direct appeal to the highest levels of government, signaling a breakdown in traditional conflict resolution mechanisms. His actions have reignited debates about the balance of power between traditional leaders and elected officials in the country.

The Sampa crisis has deep historical roots, with rival factions vying for control and legitimacy. Amidst accusations of foul play and manipulation, the situation has reached a boiling point, prompting Dormaahene to take decisive action.

Observers fear that the intervention of Vice President Bawumia could either defuse tensions or exacerbate the situation, depending on the government’s response. The outcome of this power struggle could have significant implications for governance and stability in the Bono Region and beyond.

As the political landscape in Ghana remains volatile, the standoff between Dormaahene and Otumfuo has captured national attention, highlighting broader issues of leadership, accountability, and the rule of law. The resolution of the Sampa crisis will require delicate diplomacy and a commitment to dialogue from all parties involved. Only through sincere efforts to address grievances and uphold democratic principles can Ghana navigate this challenging
