The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is set to visit the town of Keta in the Volta Region at the invitation of the Awoamefia (Paramount Chief) of Anlo, Togbi Sri III.

Otumfuo has been invited to attend the 2022 Hogbetsotso Za of the Anlo people which is expected to be climaxed with a grand durbar on Saturday, November 5, 2022.

Ahead of his visit, a list of Otumfuo’s entourage has popped up and it is showing he is travelling with a large retinue.

The list which was posted on Facebook by Akwasi A Amankwa Afrifa suggests Otumfuo will be accompanied to Anloga by 211 servants. The list includes hornblowers, cooks, and sword bearers, among others.

Considering that Otumfuo will be accompanied by other chiefs of his kingdom, his entourage is expected to be even bigger than the 211 people on the list.
