The three-day national mourning for former United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan Busumuru has begun after the remains of Mr. Annan arrived in Ghana yesterday. The former UN General Secretary died in a Swiss hospital on August 18 after a short illness.
However, some mourners at the Accra International Conference Centre who were eager to pay their final respects to former United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Kofi Annan, were left disappointed because they were unable to catch a glimpse of the remains of the peace icon in his casket.
According to some of them, the closure of the casket was not in sync with the Ghanaian way of honouring the dead and a social media user has suggested that the late Kofi Annan’s body has not been brought back home, according to the social media user known as Nana Amponsa-Boafo II the body is still in Switzerland.
Though it’s still unclear why the casket was closed , mourners believe something is not right somewhere.
