Osuodumgya Otutu Kono, who was known in private life as Justice Atta Kwasi Asare Korang, reigned for 14 years, after succeeding his late uncle, Osuodumgya Otutu Ababio, who reigned for 40 years.

He died in February at the age of 72.

He was a lawyer and served on the bench as an Appeals Court Judge until his retirement in 2013.

The presence of the flag bearer of NPP brought the funeral activities to a standstill, as the mourners and people, thronged the funeral grounds to catch a glimpse of his delegation.

He was accompanied by party stalwarts including Mr Dan Kwaku Botwe, Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere, Mr Osafo Marfo, former Minister of Finance, Mr Kwaku Ofosu-Asamoah, MP for Kade, Mr O. B Amoah, MP for Aburi, Mr Samuel Ata-Akyea, MP for Abuakwa South and Mr Frank Agyekum, Spokesperson of former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

Nana Akufo-Addo donated GH₵ 5,000.00, 20 cartons of beer and Guinness, six bottles of whisky, 10 crates of soft drinks and 10 cartoons of bottled water.

Mr Agyekum donated GH₵ 2,000.00 on behalf of Mr Kufuor, while the Eastern Caucus of the NPP in Parliament donated GH₵ 1,000.00 to support the funeral.

Other dignitaries who also mourned with Okere, were Mr Ivor Greenstreet, flag bearer of the Convention People’s Party, Dr Kwabena Dufuor, former Governor of the Bank of Ghana and Minister of Finance.

The late Adukromhene was buried on the dawn of Sunday, August 7, at the end of a one week long funeral.
