Commissioning Of Manhyia Palace Auditorium Postponed

The event to inaugurate the new and multi-purpose auditorium at the Manhyia Palace has been put off.

This was announced by Baffour Kantakrakyi, the linguist of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Thursday, March 21, 2024, during a Kumasi Traditional Council (KTC) meeting.

The building sitting inside the Palace was earlier scheduled for commissioning on March 25, 2024. Meanwhile, a new date is yet to be announced.

The building will be named Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Jubilee Hall, the Chairman of the Planning Committee of Asantehene’s 25th Anniversary, Juabenhene Daasebre Otuo Serebuo announced last week.

He stated that due to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s unparalleled leadership, the committee decided to request naming it after him.

“The facility was single-handedly constructed by Otumfuo and so we pleaded for his permission to have it named after himself. It will be a long-lasting legacy to his name.”

The magnificent and fully air-conditioned facility, he said, is three and half times the size of the 2,000-capacity Great Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Emphasizing the critical need for the facility, Juabenhene said the hall would enable traditional authorities to host important events at the Palace instead of renting venues elsewhere and would accommodate as many audiences as possible.

The facility is expected to host some of the events slated for the 25th Anniversary of the King, such as a photo exhibition and a dinner.
