Photos: Ofosu Ampofo led NDC delegation to Beg Okyehene over Kwame Zu’s comment

The National Chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has led a high-powered delegation from the Party today arrived at Ofori Panin Fie in Kyebi of the Eastern Region to apologise to the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin and the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council on behalf of its Ashanti Regional Secretary, Kwame Zu.

Kwame Zu During a demonstration by the Coalition for National Sovereignty in Kumasi alleged that if it had not been the intervention of former President John Mahama, the people of Kyebi and the Okyenhene would still be "drinking water with animals."

The statement, widely condemned, led to a huge demonstration by the chiefs and people of Akyem Abuakwa.

The Ashanti Regional branch of the NDC consequently issued a written apology but it was rejected by the Okyeman Council.

The party was subsequently asked to perform ritual pacification to appease the Okyenhene or risk being banned from all official functions organised under the auspices of the Ofori Panin Stool.

Among the delegation are NDC bigwigs like Ambassador Victor Smith, Madam Berty Mould.
