The elders went inside the family room for general meeting at Teshie on the 4th day of August 2023 presided over by the Otsaame of the Family in the person of Peter Nii Amon Sasraku for deliberation. A conclusion was drawn that their great ancestor Nii Afutu Brempong has many children however there are two (2) lineages namely Numo Kotei (second born) Nii Botwe Sasraku lineage (eight born) are nominated for head of family which is also on rotation.
After the death of Nii Amonfio Kotei (4th head of family); it is the turn of Nii Botwe Sasraku lineage to be head of family all 14 principal elders present agreed. Robert Nii Amon Sasraku (Direct blood lineage Nii Botwe Sasraku) was nominated however there is pending court ruling restraining him to become head of family, he was therefore not suitable.
The 13 elders at the meeting concluded that since Joseph Nii Amon Sasraku is the current head of the Nii Botwe Sasraku lineage it will be appropriate to appoint him as head of family for Nii Afutu Brempong We of Teshie. Joseph Nii Amon Sasraku trace it root to through his father Nicolas Nii Amasah Sasraku (3rd head of family of Nii Afutu Brempong We), his grandfather Joseph Oko Sasraku and Benjamin Akuettteh Sasraku (Twins), his great grandfather Chief John Botwe Sasraku (second head of family for Nii Afutu Brempong We) and his great great grandfather is Nii Afutu Brempong.
