Nana Ama Amponsaa, the Akyempimhemaa of Dormaa Traditional Area in the Bono Region on Monday took a swipe at queens and challenged female royals to do more to restore the tarnishing image and dignity of “Queenship”.

She regretted that the promiscuous lifestyle of some queens had tarnished the image and affected the dignity and societal reverence for queens thereby exposing the long lasting royal institution into public ridicule and disrepute.

Nana Amponsaa, 62, and had been on the stool for 42 years, threw the challenge during a colourful ceremony for the installation of Nana Abenaa Amponsaa II, the new Abontomahemaa of the Traditional Area held at Dormaa-Ahenkro.

She emphasised that as the embodiment of women and girls, queens must endeavour to live above reproach, and shun negative behaviours they lived during their private life immediately they ascended the throne.

Nana Amponsaa emphasised that faithfulness, righteous and godly living remained a hallmark, and advised married and unmarried queens to remain faithful to their husbands and partners.

She challenged the newly installed Abontohemaa to open up to all the people, especially her opponents and ensure that she remained a unifier in the Abontoma royal family.

Nana Afia Siraa, the Dompemhemaa the Dormaa Traditional Area, indicated that unity was very important if the new queen could succeed, and advised her to identify and find lasting solutions to some perennial disputes in the family.

Nana Baffour Kwadwo Damoah, the Abontomahene, expressed appreciation to all the 15 royal families of the Dormaa Traditional Council, as well as the entire Abontoma family for their support which made his installation and that of the new queens successful.

As require by the Dormaa Tradition, Odeneho Kyeame Yaa Yeboaa performed traditional rites on behalf of Nana Akosua Fima Dwabeng II, the Dormaahemaa to complete and seal the installation ceremony.

Nana Abenaa Apmponsaa II, the new Abontomahemaa known in private life as Juliana Amponsah succeeded Nana Adwoa Kyeremaa, her grandmother who died eight years ago.
