Manhyia Palace

Inauguration of Manhyia Auditorium Set For Monday

The immortalisation of the illustrious reign of the 16th Monarch of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, will be witnessed on April 15, 2024, as an Auditorium raised at Manhyia Palace will be inaugurated and named after the King.

The event will take place at 11 am.

The inauguration of the multi-purpose auditorium was initially set to take place on March 25, 2024; however, it was put off due to delayed furnishing of building.

“The building was supposed to be commissioned on March 25 but it had to be rescheduled due to delayed arrival of some items to furnish it as a result of the recent internet outage,” the Chairman of the Planning Committee of Asantehene’s 25th Anniversary, Nana Otuo Sereboe explained on March 28, 2024 during the last Asanteman Council meeting.

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

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.

In a speech delivered at the Asanteman Council meeting on March 28, Otumfuo charged all traditional authorities who make up Asanteman to show up for the inauguration.

The building will be named Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Jubilee Hall, Nana Juabenhene announced when he first put out a date for the commissioning.

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 him. It will be a long-lasting legacy to his name.”

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.
