Nana Akwasi Agyemang, Former KMA Boss Passes On

 

The former and one of the longest-serving mayors of Kumasi, Nana Akwasi Agyemang, has been reported dead in Kumasi.

Nana Agyemang had been out of the public eye for some time because of ill-health.

Family sources say that the Oyoko Royal Family relative, also known as ‘Okumkom,’ passed at exactly 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. He died at the age of 86.

The late Nana Agyemang has a long political history, dating back to 1977, during the Supreme Military Council government of late Ignatius Kutu Acheampong where he served as chairman of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly.

He subsequently went on to serve as Mayor under two other Heads of State, Dr Hilla Limann and Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, to whom he became a close confidante.

He was appointed Deputy Minister of Science and Environment under Rawlings’ regime and was also considered a leading contender for the vacant Asante Stool following the demise of Otumfuo Opoku Ware II in 1999.

Current Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was chosen over him by kingmakers of Asanteman.
