A picture has emerged appearing to show the Asantehene, Otumfou Osei Tutu II, looking indifferent and unconcerned when President John Mahama called on him at the Manhyia palace.
The picture, which appears to have been taken when Mahama visited the Ashanti Region over the weekend, has many people scratching their heads as to whether Otumfuo gave the president a cold shoulder or the picture does not tell the full story.
Otumfuo and Mahama are known to have enjoyed a good friendship, but there have been unconfirmed reports that the relationship has strained in recent times.
And the picture is likely to give credence to such reports.
Already some Ghanaians, especially supporters of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), are laughing at the president.
It will likely serve as good propaganda material for the NPP with elections only a few weeks away
