Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong II
The district has one paramount chief, the Abene hene. The others are sub-chiefs. Traditionally, the district is comparatively peaceful, chieftaincy is not a problem. This might be due to the presence of one paramountcy to whom the other sub-chiefs owe allegiance. The paramountcy is at Abene, which is in the Kwahu East District. There are as many as seventeen (17) Divisional chiefs in the Kwahu Traditional Area of which majority of them are located in the Kwahu East District.
Some of the major traditional wings (divisions) to the Paramount Chief in order of hierarchy are the Adontenhene (Abetifi), Benkumhene (Aduamoa), Kyidomhene (Pepease). Other important traditional towns that sit in council with the Kwahuhene include, Nkwatia, Bokuruwa, Nteso, Tafo, Dwerebease and Akwasiho. The Kwahuhene sits in council with his sub-chiefs during Akwasidae to take important decisions and settle disputes. There is a cordial relationship between the Traditional and Politico-administrative authorities in the district. This has contributed to the largely peaceful atmosphere in the district.
