Amissah-Arthur’s funeral underway

By on

Mourners have started gathering to bid farewell to the late former Vice President, Mr. Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur as he begins his final journey to eternity.

A two-day state funeral is being held the Accra International Conference Centre for the 67-year-old who collapsed and died while working out at a gym at the Air Force Base in Accra on the morning of June 29, 2018.

The body is currently lying in state at the foyer of the Conference Centre with grief-stricken Ghanaians filing past.

Some roads in the national capital have been closed to allow the smooth organization of the funeral.

The casket containing the mortal remains of the former Veep arrived at the grounds in a hearse at about 6.30 am.

It is a sombre event for a man widely revered as a decent politician, gentleman, and unifier.

The widow, Matilda Amissah-Arthur, children, mother, are among family members gathered.

Also in attendance are politicians across the divide most of the members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), religious leaders and members of the academia.
