The Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) is expected to appear before the city's Traditional Council to respond to accusations of disrespect levelled against him by the chiefs.

The Traditional Council has demanded the removal of Mr Kojo Bonsu for allegedly grossly disrespecting them last week.

This came after the Kumasi Mayor wrote to the local Government Minister questioning the locus of the Chief of Amoaman, Nana Agyenim Boateng who was appointed by the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to represent the chiefs on a committee to supervise the construction of the Kejetia Market Project.

Citing this as one of the Mayor's acts of disrespect towards the chiefs, the Council members said they have had enough of the Mayor's insubordination.

The Council cited this as one of the Mayor's acts of disrespect towards the chiefs and the council members. They performed rituals at the Asantehene's palace to sever ties with him if he remained the Mayor of the city.

After their call for his removal, Kojo Bonsu publicly apologized to the Asantehene last week.

He rendered an unqualified apology in a statement to the Asantehene Otumfou Osei Tutu II and Nananom for what he described as "actions and inactions on my part, which may have incurred their displeasure."

Despite the apology, Joy News' Erastus Asare Donkor reports that Mr Bonsu has begun taking steps traditionally to appease the chiefs.
