Kojo Bonsu apologises to Otumfuor, Nananom

The Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu has apologised to the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II and Nananom of the Kumasi Traditional Council over certain actions that may have incurred their displeasure.

Mr. Bonsu’s apology comes after the Traditional Council asked President Mahama to sack the Kumasi Metropolitan Authority (KMA) Chief Executive, accusing him of gross disrespect.

Gunfire broke out at around 20:45 local time on Thursday (01:45 GMT Friday) as demonstrators marched through the city.
