A section of the security guards at the Manhyia Palace, the seat of the Ashanti Kingdom, have been dispelled over the leaked video in which the occupant of the Golden Stool, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was dancing with President John Dramani Mahama.
The Chronicle newspaper which broke the story said the positions of the dispelled security guards have now been taken over by new personnel.
The paper which is well known for political stories said Manhyia was not happy about how the video was recorded and leaked to the general public via social media since the party was supposed to be strictly by invitation and attended by only highly respected political gurus and traditional rulers.
The said video that went viral on social media platforms had the Asantehene and President John Dramani Mahama dancing to the popular ‘Yentie Obiaa’ song by highlife artiste, Charles Kwadwo Fosu, aka Daddy Lumba.
The sacking of the guards, the paper noted, was based on the apparent breach of security.
