Office of the Gborbu Wulomo Shitse is fighting off claims that it is involved in acts of illegality after the purported marriage of an alleged 12-year-old girl over the weekend.

The Traditional Authority at a news briefing on April 2, insisted the child in question is a 16-year-old, who will only be responsible for various customary rites and not conjugal activities.

The wolomei, woyeii and Asafoatsemei clad in their apparels graced the occasion seeking to clarify issues surrounding the purported marriage between their overlord and Naa Yoomo Ayemuede who they say is 16years of age.

Nii Nor Osikan Kpenetey.

Osu Klotey Wulomo explained that: “she is 16yrs, we know she is under-age but she is not married to the Wulomo but the deity.”

The purported marriage ceremony which took place on Saturday has been heavily criticized.

The office of the Gborbu Wulomo Shitse admits there were some excesses particularly in the comments made by some individuals who had the opportunity to address the gathering.

The office maintains there will be no carnal knowledge of the young girl as the Wulomo has no intention of disrespecting the laws of Ghana.

“We want to send this message to the general public and all media houses both home and abroad that Nuumo Borketey Laweh Tsuru XXXIII, Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse will for no reason attempt to violate the constitution of Ghana.

She has been preserved in maintaining her virginity till now to assume her role as Naa Yoomo Aywemoede which she begun Six (6) years ago.” Nii Tetse Borketey Frankwa the Nungua Mankralo explained.

Director of Administration, office of the Gborgbu Wulomo Shitse, Rev.

D.N.Gyasi Ankrah however sent a word of caution to the police regarding the handling of their Queen whom they say is under their protection.

He explained that the people of Nungua practice tradition and not culture, and they will deal with anyone who tries to denigrate their tradition.

Naa Yemoade, according to the wulomie was in her mother’s womb for 2yrs before her birth and it was also after two years before she started walking so, they believe she is a young spiritual mystery being.

“Being a “Boi Ekaa Yoo”, Naa Yoomo Ayemuede aids the Gborbu Priest in performing special rites for the Gborbu deity including: ‘Dudo mli Nu Woo’ which she performs three times in a year to usher in the Kplejoo Homowo celebrations.

Responsible for cleaning and ablution of the Gborbu Temple during the annual Kplejoo Homowo Festival and responsible for the Aywemoede deity and Shade deity which is purely performed by a virgin,” he explained.

The 16-year-old, Naa yoomo Ayemuede and the mother have since been under police protection.
