Kingmakers of Akuapem have initiated customary rites to install a new Akuapemhene amidst heavy security.

This was after Abrewatia of the Sakyibea royal family presented one Odehye Kwadwo Kesse to the kingmakers as the chosen candidate from the ruling gate.

A brief customary rite was observed to announce to the people of Akuapem that Odehye Kwadwo Kesse has been chosen as Akuapemhene.

Odehye Kwadwo Kesse was then handed over to the Baamuhene for confinement.

Below are pictures from the enstoolment.
