A former Mayor of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, Nana Akwasi Agyemang, is reported dead in Kumasi at the age of 86.

Family sources say the member of the Oyoko Royal Family who is one of the longest-serving Mayors of Kumasi, passed at exactly 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The late Nana Agyemang who was also known as ‘Okumkom’, has a long political history, dating back to 1977, during the Supreme Military Council government of late Ignatius Kutu Acheampong where he served as chairman of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly.

He subsequently went on to serve as Mayor under two other Heads of State, Dr. Hilla Limann and Flt. Lt Jerry John Rawlings, to whom he became a close confidante.

He was appointed Deputy Minister of Science and Environment under Rawlings’ regime and was also considered a leading contender for the vacant Asante Stool following the demise of Otumfuo Opoku Ware II in 1999.

Current Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, was chosen over him by the kingmakers of Asanteman.
Until his passing, Nana Agyemang had been out of the public for some time due to ill-health.
