Former presidents John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama were among mourners at the one observance for the mother of Dr Kwaku Oteng, owner of Angel Group of companies.
Kwaku Oteng's mother Madam Yaa Gyabuwaa was reported on Thursday, October 31, 2019. According to the reports, she died on Wednesday night at Tafo Hospital in Kumasi.
As itis custom with Asante tradition, a one-week observance was held in her memory on Wednesday, November 6, 2019.
It turned out to be a mini presidential durbar as the two former presidents Kufuor and Mahama joined the people to mourn with Kwaku Oteng.
Photos from the observance sighted by YEN.com.gh show a much very cordial relationship between Kufuor and Mahama.
In the photos, the two could be seen in a warm handshake and full of smiles as they sight their sights on each other.
The photos of Kufuor and Mahama sharply contrasts what happened when the latter met former president Jerry John Rawlings at the funeral of Brigadier General M.H.K. Ahiaglo (Rtd.), former commander of the Ghana Army's Southern Command and former boss of National Lottery Authority.
Unlike the camaraderie between Kufuor and Mahama, the atmosphere at Ahiaglo's funeral was a tensed one with Rawlings looking away while sitting on the same line with Mahama.
