I’ll deal with encroachers – Asantehene warns

The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has threatened to deal with uncooperative persons who encroach or attempt to sell lands belonging to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Speaking at the 70th anniversary launch of KNUST in Kumasi, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II said all the lands in the region are under his custody in line with the constitution.

“Let me use this platform to highlight a very disturbing development that has come to my attention in recent times, and that is the encroachment of university lands. I condemn it in no uncertain terms and strongly send a note of caution to all those involved to desist from it or face my wrath,” the Asantehene said.

“And let me warn the communities, the chiefs, and whoever that the lands are mine and you are just the caretakers to those lands. There is no family land here in Ashanti, no Abusuapanyin (family head) can claim the lands belong to him and therefore he has the right to alienate part of the university lands.”

He added: “And you can go to any court, take it there, I am sure also there will be a judge who will know that the Constitution says that there is no family land in Ashanti.”
