A video of one of Kofi Annan’s daughters shedding tears after seeing the mortal remains of her late father could just be the saddest thing you see today.
The former United Nations (UN) Secretary-General died over three weeks ago while in Switzerland.
However, his mortal remains were brought back to Ghana on Monday, September 10, ahead of his state burial.
The statesman’s body was accompanied by his widow, Nane Marie Annan, children and some selected executives of the UN.
President Akufo-Addo led a delegation of government officials to welcome the convoy at the Kotoka International Airport.
Although the aftermath scenes were all emotional, the sight of one of Kofi Annan’s daughter crying upon seeing the remains of her father caught the attention of many.
Standing together with some family members, she immediately broke down in tears after sighting her late dad.
Kofi Annan’s burial ceremony will be held at the Accra International Conference Center on Thursday, September 13, before he is finally laid to rest at the Military Cemetery.
