Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the rain fell in Kumasi, but not at the Manhyia Palace where the ceremony was ongoing.
The rains finally fell on the evening of Thursday 7th December 2017 after thousands of mourners had departed from the venue where the burial of the late Asantehemaa was taking place.
In the Asantehene’s view, God halted the rains so that the ceremony would not be disrupted.
“It rained heavily all over Kumasi on Thursday afternoon but Manhyia Palace, where the Asantehemaa’s funeral rites were taking place was spared, this miracle was caused by God.
It was not done by a human being”, he stated.
His observations were captured in a report which was read on his behalf by the Asante Juaben Paramount Chief and Council of State Chairman, Nana Otuo Serebuo, at the St. Cyprians Anglican Church on Sunday 10th December 2017.
It was during the Thanksgiving Service for the late Asantehemaa, Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II.
The Asantehene used the opportunity to express his appreciation to the president and his vice, Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia for their support.
He also extended the same message to former presidents Kufuor and Rawlings, and former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings.
He also applauded various organizations, as well as the media, for their roles in the programme.
The residents of Kumasi, he noted, also deserve praise for complying with the curfew on the night of Saturday 9th December 2017.
