I came across this script googling and had to make a little change to get it to work. Maybe useful for someone else.
When the folder is renamed in line 14, also assign the new name to the folder variable because its used again in 25.

if folder.startswith("AKWF_"):
    os.rename(folder, folder.replace("AKWF_", ""))
    folder = folder.replace("AKWF_", "")
