- Sam Korankye Ankrah last week pronounced no youth will go past 33 years in the town of Denkyira Obuasi
- But chief of the town says the pastor is not God
Ruler of new Denkyira-Obuasi, Nana Adjei Nkyire II has rejected prophesies made by the Apostle General of Royal House Chapel concerning the youth of the embattled community.
The renowned preacher is reported to have said that the youth of Denkyira-Obuasi are cursed while speaking at a 30-day prayer and fasting programme at the Cedar Mountain Chapel Assemblies of God Church at East Legon.
He further prophesied that the youth in the community will not grow past the 33 years mark, as punishment for the gruesome murder of the late Major Maxwell Mahama.
Denkyira-Obuasi has been in the spotlight following the murder of the army officer by residents of the town after he was suspected of being an armed robber.
The late Major Mahama was lynched by the youth of the town despite his efforts to clarify who he actually was. The late Major’s death sparked outrage among many Ghanaians, with some quarters raining curses on the town and its residents.
However, the Chief of Denkyira-Obuasi has taken exception to the prophecies made by Rev. Sam Korankye, insisting they are empty prophecies.
In an interview with Starr News, Nana Adjei Nkyire II said the preacher's prophesies were “out of line”, adding that “if he or she is a man of God and is coming up with such an issue what about those who came there to baptise the people.”
The Chief further suggested that the preacher made those prophecies just to gain media attention.
