Obonu Wem Clan Takes On ET Mensah Over Prampram Makralo Stool Dispute

 

 

The Obonu Wem Family of Prampram in the Greater Accra Region has called on the Prampram Traditional Council to be forthcoming with resolving issues surrounding the Prampram Makralo Stool. In a statement, Head of Family of Obonu Wem Emmanuel Tetteh Nartey said the delay in adjudicating on a case of capacity and subsequent contempt against one Ebenezer Mensah who parades himself as the Mankralo of Prampram is fueling illegalities in Prampram. The statement accused former Member of Parliament for the area Enoch Tei Mensah of being the one behind the illegalities saying since Mr. ET Mensah lost his parliamentary seat to Sam George he has never allowed peace a chance in Prampram.
“The Python behind the battle is E.T Mensah. Prampram has known no peace ever since E.T Mensah lost his parliamentary seat to Sam George. This man has vowed in his heart to destroy by buying some cheap and lazy elders of Prampram to change history. Nene Asture Beata III was murdered in cold blood and till date we only go to court and sittings are adjourned. Nothing is a secrete – Obunu Wem is a family so how can E. T Mensah who is not a member of the family and his allies seize the House and get his brother Ebenezer Mensah installed as Mankralo of Prampram. Handguards seized our House, no one could enter; Ready to kill and destroy. E.T Mensah has put fear in the people and he wants to change his history. E.T Mensah should come out and tell the people of Ghana his paternal lineage” indicated, Mr. Emmanuel Tetteh Nartey.
Mr. Emmanuel Tetteh Nartey said the sprinkle of Kpokpoi at the Royal Obonu Wem Stool House as a way to mark this year’s Homowo festival by Mr. Ebenezer Mensah is a sacrilege as he does not hail from the clan. He said ET Mensah and his brother do not come nowhere near Obonu Wem, thereby challenging Mr. Mensah’s lineage to Prampram.
“We were told that ET Mensah’s grandfather was named Papa Moro. Papa Moro’s house number is PR/OL 110. This name is not a Southern name. How can Papa Moro’s grandson be a Mankralo? People of Ghana hear our story. Nana Addo Dankwa-Akuffo Addo, hear our cry. E.T Mensah cannot change our history. He should be advised to leave Obonu Wem with his evil influence adde”, Mr. Nartey.
The statement called on the District Commander of Police in Prampram to be apt to ensure peace, security and check illegalities and fraud.
“We wish to remind the District Commander of Police in Prampram that his job is to ensure peace and security. It is also his duty to check illegalities and fraud. We thus expect him to act to stop the illegalities being perpetrated by ET Mensah and his cohorts. We do not believe that he has also become a puppet of ET Mensah. We expect him to investigate issue properly so that he does not end up defending the wrong people against the rightful ones, the wicked against the peaceful and the thieves against the victims” The statement added.
They added that Obonu Wen will in no time install a legitimate royal as the Prampram Mankralo to restore the dignity and pride of Obonu Wem and Prampram as a whole.

PRESS RELEASE BY OBONU WEN CLAN ON DISPUTES SURROUNDING THE PRAMPRAM MAKRALO STOOL
Niimei, Naamei, members of the press, ladies and gentlemen, we the members of Obonu Wen in Prampram wish to bring to the fore issues surrounding the Prampram Mankralo Stool. Ladies and gentlemen of the press, since the gruesome murder of the Mankralo of Prampram Nene Atsure Benta in December 2018, faceless people have tried relentlessly to annex the stool. It may interest you to know that these people do not hail from the Royal Obonu Wem clan, the only people who can ascend to the Mankralo Stool of Prampram.
Ladies and gentlemen, some of these people, especially, their bankrollers and so called ‘Big Men’ do not even hail from Prampram. It is therefore surprising that these faceless people were able to fictitiously install what they described as a Mankralo. Though the police, the Traditional Council and all recognized offices were notified, these people who were bold to say they are supported by ‘powers from above’ to take what does not belong to them continue to perpetrate illegalities and impudence around the Mankralo Stool. A contempt case against the perpetrators is still pending at the Prampram Traditional Council and yet these people with no respect to the laws had the affront to practice sacrilege at the Royal Obonu Wem Stool House by sprinkling Kpokpoi there as a way to mark this year’s Homowo festival. They have drawn the battle lines.
The Python behind the battle is E.T Mensah. Prampram has known no peace ever since E.T Mensah lost his parliamentary seat to Sam George. This man has vowed in his heart to destroy by buying some cheap and lazy elders of Prampram to change history. Nene Asture Beata III was murdered in cold blood and till date we only go to court and sittings are adjourned. Nothing is a secrete – Obunu Wem is a family so how can E. T Mensah who is not a member of the family and his allies seize the House and get his brother Ebenezer Mensah installed as Mankralo of Prampram. Handguards seized our House, no one could enter; Ready to kill and destroy. E.T Mensah has put fear in the people and he wants to change his history. E.T Mensah should come out and tell the people of Ghana his paternal lineage
We were told that ET Mensah’s grandfather was named Papa Moro. Papa Moro’s house number is PR/OL 110. This name is not a Southern name. How can Papa Moro’s grandson be a Mankralo? People of Ghana hear our story. Nana Addo Dankwa-Akuffo Addo, hear our cry. E.T Mensah cannot change our history. He should be advised to leave Obonu Wem with his evil influence.
Last year the Seitse of Obonu Wem and his children fought Nene Asture Benta’s children and at a point pulled a gun. This case was taken to the Prampram magistrate court and the judgment was that they should go and never do that again – how shameful. So the money E.T Mensah made out of Prampram is the same money he is using to destroy Prampram.
E,T Mensah laid his late son at Kley Abordo which clearly shows he has no paternal lineage in Prampram. He should be advised to stop all his annual activities in Prampram
E.T Mensah can boldly stand in the Methodist church in Prampram together with the priest to say his father Grandfather Papa Moro gave the land to the church. How sad. We won’t allow E.T Mensah to change the noble history of achievements of our grandfathers. The Methodist church can please come out to clear the air.
It is becoming alarming and we are calling the good people of Prampram to wake up. The people saw and know those who killed Nene Asture Benta but they are afraid to mention so it has become an open secret since they want to save their dear lives from the tyrants but the royal blood of Nene Astute benta must never go wasted.Truth has always stood the test of time, no better how hard one trie to twist it. Again Good name is said to be better than riches.
E.T Mensah, be reminded that we will all die one day. What do you need? How can a mortal be so engulfed with so much greed. You want to reap where you have not sowed. Our hearts bleed. Arise people of Prampram, your town goes destroyed. What do you need after all that you gained in politics? Is it the lands in Prampram? Probably Yes!!
We wish to remind the District Commander of Police in Prampram that his job is to ensure peace and security. It is also his duty to check illegalities and fraud. We thus expect him to act to stop the illegalities being perpetrated by ET Mensah and his cohorts. We do not believe that he has also become a puppet of ET Mensah. We expect him to investigate issue properly so that he does not end up defending the wrong people against the rightful ones, the wicked against the peaceful and the thieves against the victims. When will there be peace in greater Accra chieftancy affairs? Royalty is a natural gift from God and must not be twisted and stolen from the owners.
Obonu Wen will in no time install a legitimate royal as the Prampram Mankralo to restore the dignity and pride of Obonu Wem and Prampram as a whole. We are by this release therefore admonishing the Traditional Council and all stakeholders to be forthcoming in settling all cases before them in relation to the Prampram Mankralo Stool to forestall peace.
We are resolved and will stop at nothing to defend Obonu Wem and to protect what is ours. When the victim realizes that no one is ready to protect him, he will protect himself, this goes to the security apparatus. Thank you.

Signed;
Emmanuel Tetteh Nartey
Family Head
Obonu Wem
Prampram
