Otumfuo Osei Tutu is the king of the Asante kingdom of the most powerful and influential kingdom in the world.
He enjoys certain privileges that no one else can enjoy, not even the president.
The Asanate kingdom is recognised by the gold they have missed n excess and their rich culture.
1.HE CAN NEVER BE ARRESTED
The king enjoys Sovereign Immunity, which means he can’t be prosecuted.The king is protected for life (since that’s how long he holds her position).
So what would happen if the king was caught red-handed committing a crime? Prosecutors could go after the Crown as Executive, but then the king’s eldere would act on his behalf — and accept any punishment that was doled out.
2.HE OWNS ALL THE LAND IN ASHANTE KINGDOM
No wonder, he owns all the lands in Kumasi, his anceators played 100% roles in the development of Ghana(Gold Coast). They caught very well to accquire more lands and territories, today the king can decide to do anything with the lands, no matter who you are, he has the power to use your land without any compensation.
3.HE IS ABOVE THE LAW
Yes, this privilege seems very interesting, any ASHANTE king is above the law, that governs the state, bare in mind he also owns a kingdom that is more powerful and has fought with the British.
He is never mandated to one the laws, he does that for his personal interest.
4.HE CAN CALL THE PRESIDENT TO HIS PALACE AT ANY POINT.
He can call for the president at any moment, sometimes to advice on issue of concern. No one else can call the president to his or her comfort zone , the Asante king is only person with that privilege, it has become a normal that every president must go for his Blessings when elected into power.
