Meet the 14th Asantehemaa Of the Asante Kingdom, Oheneba Abena Konadu

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has appointed his 83-year-old elder sister, Nana Ama Konadu, as the new Asantehemaa.

Nana Ama Konadu will succeed Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II, the Asante monarch’s mother who passed away at the age of 111 after reigning for 39 years.

Oheneba Abena Konadu is the 14th Queenmother of the Asante Kingdom.

It is likely the next queen will be out-doored during the next ‘Akwasidae’.
