The Ruler Of New Juaben In Accra

Daasebre Oti Boateng I, The Ruler of New Juaben ( one of the two states of Juabenman ), sitting in state during a durbar in Accra. This was when Queen Elisabeth visited Ghana. Daasebre is shown here, sitting in full regalia, which is reminiscent of the days when Juaben ( Dwaben ) was at it's pinnacle of wealth, power and pomp.

Attendants of the New Juaben Stool, sitting in state with their Ruler. Shown here, are some
swordbearers ( with the custodian of the Mponponsuo Sword of New Juaben wearing the Ntakerakye---cap of eagle feathers) and some Kokosesefuo, who are bearers of ostrich feathers, known as Sohori Ntakra in Twi.
