Popular Ghanaian fetish priest Kwaku Bonsam has been reportedly sentenced by the Asantehemaa, Nana Ama Konadu’s traditional court. Kwaku Bonsam admitted guilt to the offense of invoking the deities of the land against another, an act reported to have been banned by Manhyia, the seat of the Golden Kingdom.
The Fetish priest is an independent parliamentary candidate for Offinso North constituency in the Ashanti region.
According to information we gathered from Pulse Ghana after accepting his plea on Tuesday, the chiefs took turns to scold the Akomadan-Afrancho-based fetish priest, for his action, describing it as an affront to Asante tradition.
He was then sentenced to a series of fines, running into several thousands of Ghana cedis and a full-blown sheep with horns to pacify the gods and also reverse the curse.
The traditional court reportedly warned him never to repeat the offence, saying but for his status, his sanction would have been worse.
