If you’ve heard stories about the Asantehene being a member of Free Mason, and always wondered if it’s true, then now you would have to believe it as the king himself has admitted that he’s a member of the Free Mason.
At the launch of a new book about the mysterious society, the Asantehene revealed that he was a proud member of the FreeMason and that the lessons they are taught there have helped him in his functions as a king.
“I am a proud Freemason and I confirm that the principles and tenets of Freemasonry that we are taught in the Lodge, especially in the areas of governance and accountability have always stood me in good stead in my daily functions as Asantehene,” Otumfuo revealed.
The book titled “The Freemasons; who we are; what we stand for and do; our relevance-An Insider’s view” was written by Brother Gyesie, the Honorary Senior Grand Warden of the Freemason Society of Ghana.
The former president of Ghana, Kuffour also spoke at the launch of the book.
